G2 Esports Versus FunPlus Phoenix for Summoner’s Cup
European powerhouse G2 Esports vies to bring home the coveted League of Legends Summoner’s Cup to Europe for the first time. Chinese and Korean teams have long dominated the competition, and G2 Esports is the West’s best chance at reversing that trend once and for all.
Although they entered Worlds 2019 as one of the teams to beat, their journey has been nothing short of spectacular. They took down perennial Korean titans SK Telecom T1 and their famed mid laner, Faker, in the semi-finals. Then, they ousted hot favorites for the title, DAMWON Gaming, in the quarters.
Opposite them will sit FunPlus Phoenix. While few would have expected the top seed from the Chinese League of Legends Pro League to advance this far, the team has stormed through the competition, sidelining last year’s winners, Invictus Gaming, in convincing style in the process.
