Coming from the Korean region, DAMWON Gaming represents the LCK as the #1 seed. They deserve it since the roster has played to perfection and will now be coming into the competition in the hopes of defending their title. Redemption will also be on their minds as the team lost to RNG in the grand finale of the MSI 2021.
It seems like they have learned from their mistakes since they are the only unbeaten team in the competition as they ended the group stage with a 6-0 record.
MAD Lions unarguably finished at 2nd place in the toughest group as all the places were decided in the tiebreakers. At the end of the regular games, all the teams held a 3-3 record and MAD claimed its spot after winning against LNG Esports. MAD was tipped by many to finish at 2nd spot and they met the expectations.
DAMWON Gaming vs MAD Lions prediction
Now they are arguably against the strongest team in the competition and we believe with all due respect that MAD has little to no chance against the mighty DAMWON. It will be an interesting series and we might just see DAMWON dropping a game. Yet their statistics show that the team is currently on a rampage and MAD is not the team to stop them.
The EU side has played well but their story will likely come to an end in the quarterfinals. DAMWON Gaming 3-0 MAD Lions
