With the final week of the LPL already kicked off, a few playoff spots are still up for grabs. Vici, Bilibili and EDG didn’t manage to take their chance for the playoffs. With spots for the top-two and top-four byes still available, the LPL is still anyone’s game. Let’s analyze the second 2 Week 10 matches that are going to take place on Tuesday.
Victory Five @ 1.36
Victory Five will kick off Tuesday’s action against EDG. With a spot in the top-four on the line, V5 cannot give up yet. If V5 wants to book a spot at the Regional Finals, they need to get at least fourth place. Anything below that would be leaving it up to fate, which is far too risky in the LPL. Up against them, EDG will continue with their race towards playoffs. It is important to note that for them to still be in contention, FPX will have to lose to Dominus. With that being an unlikely outcome, this match probably won’t mean much other than pride for EDG. Hopefully, that won’t ruin what would otherwise be an action-packed match.
Team WE @ 1.27
A lot like the first match, the second match of the day doesn’t have much on the line. OMG have been eliminated from playoffs and the best they can do is slow some teams down. This time will also be players’ last shot at proving that they deserve to have a spot on the team next year. Team WE also have all but confirmed their spot. With the top four teams being a bit distant, there is little to play for. It’s entirely possible that Team WE might give some of their substitute players some game time. This match could very well be the debut of Shanks.
