October 24, 2016 – Game 2 – SG vs H2K
Since SKT and ROX are against each other, Samsung and H2k will be force to go head to head against each other in the semifinals. Samsung have performed very well so far as they ended up 5-1 in the group stages and went an astonishing 3-0 against C9 in the semifinals. They are expected to keep up the good performance as they have shown to constantly improve, even defeating the star North American team Cloud 9. H2k entered worlds by winning their regional qualifiers, they were placed in group C, by far the easiest group in the whole competition and considered the “freelo group”. While placed in the “freelo group”, they placed 5-2, losing to AHQ and EDG, which isn’t too good for their reputation and the reputation of EU as a whole.
There is absolutely no doubt that Samsung will completely roll H2k this game. If Samsung were to drop a single match which is extremely unlikely, it would be most likely be the third game if their were 2-0, and decided to play around with H2k for awhile to exert dominance. It also has to be said that, if H2k didn’t go against ANX in the quarter finals, there would almost be no chance of them advancing to the semifinals.
Predictions : SG 95% l H2k 5%
Score : 3-0
