##Group Stage Round-Up
It’s safe to say that some of the biggest teams in the world got off to a flyer with G2, SK Telecom T1 and Fnatic securing their place in the next round of the competition. But there were also some casualties along the way with big guns Cloud 9, Team Liquid and RNG failing to secure a place in the next round of the tournament, all finishing third in their group respectively.
Some of the quarter-finalists definitely had it easier than others, G2 are a testament to this and managed to win all but one of their group's games to secure their place in this stage of the competition. Korean team DAMWON Gaming also had a pretty easy time of it in Group D again only losing one match, so it's clear to see they brought their A-game to Worlds this year.
But the performance of the Group Stages and the comeback of the century has to go to Fnatic. Europe’s second seed needed to win all three of their games against Clutch Gaming, RNG and SKT to secure a place in the quarters, while also hoping other results in Group C fell their way. Lead by Rekkles who went back to his well-known ranged ADC champions, bloodthirsty support in the form of Hylissang and a mid-laner who was back to top form in Nemesis, they managed to pull three wins out of the bag, and secure their place in Madrid.

We’re now getting into the business end of the tournament and the best of 5 games (BO5), where it’ll take more than just a quick backdoor tactic to knock down the Nexus turrets and win the game. With four games scheduled to happen this weekend, we’ve previewed the best games and offered our verdict.
FunPlus Phoenix vs Fnatic The stage is set for European giants Fnatic to secure their place in yet another World Championships quarter-final, but standing in their way this time around is FunPlus Phoenix, and we suspect the team from China will be no pushover.
Fnatic secured their place in the quarter-finals the hard way, needing three wins in three games just like they did at Worlds back in 2018, where they subsequently went on to make the final only to fall at the final hurdle. Reverting back to the tried and tested team comps which saw them finish second in the LEC, they needed a win against RNG to cement their spot, and with Rekkles getting his first-ever competitive win over ADC rival Uzi, they managed to get their spot in Madrid.
FunPlus Phoenix had no such struggles and topped Group B to secure their spot in the quarter-finals. Coming unstuck only once against Splyce in the groups, they were forced into a tiebreaker against the European side but managed to brush them off to secure top spot.
Out of the four games on offer, this is definitely the toughest to call, but with Fnatic finding their form at the right time, we’re going with the European team to secure their spot in the semi-finals winning by 3-1.
DAMWON Gaming vs G2 Esports DAMWON we’re a bit of an unknown quantity heading into the Group Stages having needed the play-ins to secure their spot in Berlin. But since then, they’ve certainly proven their worth by topping Group D and managing to eliminate North America's best hope Team Liquid in the process.
G2, on the other hand, seemed to have it easy in the first week of Group games and only came unstuck in their final game which forced them into a tiebreaker match. Having lost that game, they’ll have to be content with the second spot, but as we’re now into BO5 territory, the Europeans should come into their own and show their dominance across every lane.
We’re backing G2 to add another European name to the semi-finals hat here, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled off a 3-0 over DAMWON.
SK Telecom T1 vs Splyce The last of the quarter-finals sees the favourites to take the World Championship title SKT go head to head with Splyce and after the performances of both teams in the Groups, we only see this game going one way.
SKT ran like a well-oiled machine in Berlin, and with Fnatic the only team to have beaten them so far, it looks like an uphill task for Splyce especially if Faker manages to become his unstoppable self in the midlane.
Splyce needed a week 2 turnaround to secure their place in Madrid, and despite pulling that off to need a tiebreaker against FunPlus for the final positions in the Group, we suspect SKT may be one step too far this time around.
We’re backing SKT to secure their semi-final place here, and with odds as short as 1/100, we think it’ll be a comfortable 3-0 performance from the Koreans.
