H2K are tied for 1st place with G2, and if they can win here they will immense pressure onto them for their game later that evening. They could also put some distance between themselves and Vitality, who are currently in third place. With FORG1VENGRE staying for a while longer, they will have their full team ready to play. H2K have been very dominant, capitalising on enemy mistakes, and making hardly any of their own. Pr0lly is a great coach, who ensures the players understand what he wants them to do, and why, and the players themselves have the skill to execute these orders well.

For UOL, they need to stop their current slide down the rankings. Luckily they are secured in a playoff spot, but they will want the highest possible seeding to give them the best chance to make a good run. Their players are decent, but their shotcalling is somewhat lacking, especially in late game where they tend to misjudge when they can end games, or make bad calls over objectives like baron. If they coach Sheepy can work with them to fix their mistakes, then they will be a force to be reckoned with. But it may be too little too late to make a run for it, and they may have to rely on ploughing through playoffs to make a good finish. However, their players are good and if they work as a team, they could upset H2K.

Chance of victory:  H2K: 70% : Unicorns of Love: 30%
