UOL are currently a 2nd tier team, behind the likes of G2, H2K and Vitality, so they are likely to clinch a playoff spot. However, if they want to go for a higher seed, or even a playoff bye, they will need to pickup all possible wins, and this is such a game, Origen have been performing poorly recently, and UOL can capitalise on their weak early game.

For OG, they need to put all their focus onto letting Zven carry. If champions like Lulu, Alistar or Janna are available, they need to pick them up to protect Zven. If they can make a solid protect the Kog Maw composition, they could potentially get the win. They also seem to get a few wins from splitpush/backdooring, by distracting the enemy team and letting SoaZ kill the nexus before they realise.

Overall, this game should be somewhat close, but I expect that OG’s shotcalling is more likely to falter than UOL’s, meaning they could throw in the late game, or make too many mistakes and allow UOL to get a lead that they can’t come back from.

Chance of victory: Unicorns of Love: 60% : Origen: 40%
