Immortals vs Counter Logic Gaming are matched up against each other for the NA LCS Round 7 Day 1 game to be held Saturday February 27, 2016 at 2pm PT.
Huni : Darshan
Reignover : Xmithie
Pobelter : Huhi
WildTurtle : Stixxay
Adrian : Aphromoo
CLG are the first team really going to bring it to Immortals. After they played a poor early game against Renegades last week, Immortals have shown some weaknesses that CLG could exploit. As a team, they play the lane swap game very well, and doing so reduces both jungler’s impact in the game, benefitting CLG.
For Immortals, they just need to patch up some early game mistakes and they’ll return to their top form. It is likely that their early game scare against Renegades will whip them back into shape. I expect that, as with most of their previous games, Huni and Reignover will carry the early game, and allow WildTurtle and Pobelter do deal consistent damage in the late game, allowing them to come out on top.
Overall, while the game is sure to be close, Immortals should come out on top due to their great synergy and macro play overall.
Chance of victory: Immortals: 65% : Counter Logic Gaming: 35%
