In the first match between these teams, Fnatic took control early and dictated the pace. They restricted Willer’s development almost entirely in the early stage by invading the jungle, but their defeat in the first few teamfights wiped out any lead they had accumulated.

Fnatic’s aggressive offense opened up gaps in their defense, and Hanwha Life Esports took full advantage of them. HLE seized the opportunity to turn the situation around and secure the win.

Fnatic did a good job setting up an early attack, but their impatience in subsequent battles wiped out any lead they had built up. If they can play more cautiously in this second matchup and use their lead to gather more resources in the jungle, they can develop more sustainably and have a real chance at pulling off a victory. Considering Fnatic’s odds at 3.264, according to DJ Esports, they are an attractive choice for a big payday.
