JDG vs. FPX
FunPlus Phoenix went 2-1 in the group stage dropping a game to T1 which they could of won if they didn't overextend in teamfights in the mid game. FPX actually looked good during their beating of DAMWON Gaming and Top Esports. JD Gaming, on the other hand, also finished 2-1 and dropped a game to Gen.G while playing two really close games against DragonX. Kanavi didn't look that great mechanically which made some of the games close aside from the IG game. Both teams know how to play against each other, but there has been one player who has been secretly carrying his team and that's LWX. LWX has a 7.25 KDA and a 73 percent kill participation which makes a huge difference in teamfights. This contributes to the team being able to tank for him and doing a good job of keeping the damage dealer alive which is crucial in all teamfights. Khan has looked amazing as well, grabbing the highest gold-per-minute on the team. I believe that FPX has gotten back into form and they finally found a way to play around Khan who is a world class top laner. As long as FPX can draft for Khan and LWX, this team can be deadly, even with the likes of Kanavi and Yagao on the other team.
Prediction: 3-1 FPX
