The League of Legends Korea Championship (LCK) is coming to the end of their six week 2020 spring split. As with so many other esports tournaments, this formerly known big audience event has transformed into a full online format for the very first time. Judging our match of the day can be done by seeing how well they matched up against the unstoppable force of the event: KT Rolster. This team has had a surprising seven win streak, something quite unexpected after a disappointing fall in 2019. Despite their investments in the players Smeb, Score and Bdd. Investments that finally seem to payout for them. Both Afreeca Freecs and DAMWON Gaming have fallen prey to the uprising of KT Rolster, but it is noticeable that Afreeca Freecs put on a much better fight than DAMWON. In fact, out of all the seven wins from KT, the one against Afreeca Freecs was the one hardest fought.
Afreeca Freecs and DAMWON gaming are really close in terms of quality. In the last five matches, AF has one two. But they were the last two. In terms of ranking, AF stands fifth in Korea and 23rd in the world. While DAMWON is sixth and 24th. In this best of three, we still see DAMWON being a slight favourite in the odds. But this is gonna be a close call between the two, a great match to watch and a great match to bet on.
This is weird, since Afreeca Freecs used to be the team challenging the big teams. But they have completely lost their form with three losses in a row. Even losing to APK last match. They are now on the brink of missing the LCK Playoffs and this game will be all determining; for both!
