With only three weeks left, the stakes are higher than ever as most teams are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. This is the time where every team has to give their absolute best. We’re seeing roster changes happening among the lower teams in a desperate attempt to reach the playoffs.
The Hottest Matches of LCS Week 8
For week eight there are several top meetings that you do not want to miss. Many of the top teams have already secured a spot in the playoffs, but they are still fighting for the best possible seeding.
H2k vs. Unicorns of Love
Both these teams are currently neck to neck with each other with UOL barely holding onto the first spot in Group B. Last time UOL barely won with a 2-1 and with H2k’s recent beatdown of Misfits, this match could get very thrilling.
After H2k’s impressive performance last week we firmly believe they will win. We’ve seen UOL struggle the past two weeks with a loss against Misfits and a very close match against Fnatic. Meanwhile, H2k has two convincing wins against the same teams UOL struggled against.
G2 vs. Misfits
Currently, G2 has 0 losses to their name, making them one of the most dominating EU team’s, second only to the older Fnatic. G2 already faced off against Misfits in week 2, and we ended up with a solid match going 2-1 in G2’s favor. This could end up being one of the most dramatic games in LCS, or just another stomp by G2.
There’s nothing indicating G2 will suddenly start losing matches and Misfits recent performance has been less than stellar. We expect an easy win for G2.
TSM vs. Flyquest Esports
The last time we saw this matchup, it went to a 3rd game, and Flyquest nearly won. Since then Flyquest has had it quite rough with several losses, so this will be their chance to redeem themselves to secure a playoffs spot.
It probably won’t surprise you that we’ll be going with Team Solomid. Flyquest has lost three consecutive matches now, albeit against some talented teams. Meanwhile, TSM is 12-2 and are showing no signs of slowing down.
Phoenix1 vs. Immortals
IMT and P1 showed fantastic performance last week against teams like Flyquest and TSM. P1 are currently 3rd with IMT at 6th. This will be a very important match for both these teams, especially for IMT as they are very close to not making the playoffs.
P1 are the clear favorites for this matchup and our pick. IMT lost their last match against P1 and not too long ago they lost against teams like Liquid and Envyus.
