Below are the two most favorable predictions for the European Masters LoL Summer 2019 group stage. With little surprise, the two most favorable matches come from sister teams of well known LEC names.
Fnatic Rising vs. DefuseKids
Ever since reforming in the start of 2019, Fnatic’s sister team, Fnatic Rising has shining throughout the EU scene out of the LEC. The team had claimed the top spot in the UK League Championship Spring Finals 2019, later entering the European Master Spring 2019.
While Fnatic Rising were later knocked out by SK Gaming Rising, they had made it to the semi-finals, announcing they were a team to be reckoned with. DefuseKids on the other hand, while they had made it to the European Master Spring 2019 as well, were knocked out early in the group stage.
Given Fnatic Rising are one of the tournament favorites, this match should be mostly decided.
Schedule: 16th September – 21:00
Prediction: Fnatic Rising 75% l DefuseKids 25%
For The Win Esports vs. Rogue Esports Club
For The Win Esports despite only forming in 2018 had become one of the most, if not the most formidable Portuguese team out there.
The team initially rose to fame winning the LPLOL Split 2 2018 Div 1 minor tournament, qualifying them straight to the European Masters Summer 2018. 2019 was another strong year for the team, defeating Electronik Generation, 3-1 in the LPLOL Split 2 2019 and earning their spot in this year’s European Masters Summer event.
Being the sister team of LEC’s Rogue, Rogue Esports Club are too a formidable force, participating in the Ultraliga Seasons 1 & 2, and taking out first and runner’s up respectively, only losing out to Devil’s one, another Euro Masters 2019 participant.
Schedule: 17th September – 21:00
Prediction: For The Win Esports 36% l Rogue Esports Club 64%
