If you’d prefer to bet on each individual game we also offer those betting markets with G2 again pricing as [5/6] favourites to take the opening game of the series.
If you’d like to bet on the series score we’ve put together a special price boost as we believe that G2 will take the series 3-1 over FunPlus Phoenix. Bet on G2 to beat FPX 3-1 at 4/1
Over the past two weekends, we’ve been stationed in Madrid as we watched the Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals of the competition play out in dramatic fashion. The first Best of 5 games (Bo5) brought us some interesting results, some of which saw the teams expected to make the final such as including the LCK winners dumped from the competition and the loss of one of Europe’s most popular teams in Fnatic.
But as the semi-finals approached there was only one game which was on the minds of fans from all over the world, and that was the clash between European Giants G2 Esports and South Korea’s SK Telecom T1 (SKT). A rematch from MSI earlier in the year where G2 came out on top, it was expected by many fans that SKT and Faker would take revenge for that defeat.
However, that turned out not to be the case, G2 had a favourable draft in the opening game of the series and took a 1-0 lead thanks to some intricate play from Wunder and Caps. SKT managed to claw it back to 1-1 in the second game, but as ADC Perkz finally came online with his favoured champ Xayah in the third games, the series seemed to be heading one way. In the fourth and final game, it was first-blood king Jankos who got the game rolling for G2, and with the European crowd behind them, they secured the victory and their spot in the final.
The other semi-final saw FunPlus Phoenix take on the 2018 World Champions in a clash between two LPL teams who have already faced off against each other multiple times in the 2019 season. Due to a lack of international tournament experience newcomers, FunPlus weren’t favourites to take the game, but with some impressive play, they took the series 3-1.
World Championship Final Preview
For both teams, this is their first chance to win a World Championship Final, and we suspect neither team will leave anything out on the rift, so be prepared for Baron steals, nervy drake plays and early invades in all of the games. For G2, its a case of cementing themselves as top dogs, but for FunPlus, it’s the chance to return the title back to China for another year.
Before you head over the 21.co.uk esports betting page, we’ve picked out some key things you should watch out for in the final:
Caps Popping Off So far at Worlds 2019 G2’s midlaner hasn’t exactly taken the stage by storm. A defeated finalist in 2018, he’s been a consistent performer in the G2 lineup, turning up where he needs to be and getting a key kill to help turn a game. But at 21.co.uk, we believe there is still more to come from Caps, and with Faker no longer a threat, there’s a chance he’ll select a champion like Zoe and cause havoc with those sneaky trouble bubbles.
Jankos to Remain First Blood King Since cementing his name as the first blood king within the LEC throughout the 2019 season, ganking effectively from all of his jungle pathing, Jankos constantly gets his lanes ahead. Also managing to take some key kills and provide the tanky figure within games, his adaptive playstyle is something that FunPlus may find it hard to contend with.
Doinb could prove to be the man for FunPlus Varied champion pools are often a thing that can mean the difference between winning or losing a game the League of Legends World Championship finals and Doinb has that in abundance. Playing Rumble and AP Nautilus at Worlds in the midline, he could give Caps a run for his money if his choice of champion is once again unorthodox.
G2 can complete the Grand Slam if they manage to secure the World Championship and they’ve already secured both the Spring and Summer split LEC titles and the MSI title. But FPX has been underrated in all their games so I wouldn’t rule them out taking a game from G2. Even so, the Europeans will have the crowd behind them, so we believe it will be a final score of 3-1 to G2.
