This match-up will officially start off the Shanghai Winter Major. Despite only being group stage, so there’s no elimination on the line, the stakes are still high. The loser will have to fight an uphill battle through the losers bracket to avoid two elimination rounds of best of 1 in the main event.

EHOME are the strong favourites as they have been performing well in the Chinese leagues. However MVP Phoenix also have a strong line up, and have shown that they can pull out a few tricks to overcome stronger opponents.

Neither team has played eachother in a tournament recently so it is hard to say how the face off will go.

EHOME are favourites, but MVP Phoenix have what it takes to upset the Chinese veterans.

My Predictions:

EHOME 75% | MVP PHoenix 25%

EHOME to win 2:1
