LVP and PRM champions will open the European Masters Summer 2022 Playoffs. After battling hard in their local leagues throughout the season, the teams that got enough results in the European Masters Summer 2022 Group Stage will try to survive another round in the tournament.

The standout team in the matchup is Unicorns of Love. Especially with their performance in the tough group stage and their first place finish, they have maintained their form in their league. 

It’s safe to say that things are going well for the Heretics as well. After a strong showing in the league playoffs, they were able to finish second in Group C in this tournament. However, while achieving this success, they also showed their weaknesses with 2 losses.

After a spectacular 2022 season, LDLC OL is looking to crown this success with the EU Masters trophy. Although they had a flawless league campaign last split, they lost the trophy to local rivals Karmine Corp. Now they are the favorites for this tournament.

On the other hand, Dusty showed that they are a team that should not be underestimated by winning the NLC 2022 Summer. Although they looked a bit disorganized in the EU Masters group stage, the core of the roster is very strong.

This is expected to be the closest series of the playoff stage. Two LFL teams, the second and the third, will face each other on Europe’s giant stage after the local clash. The teams that won their respective series in the league will try to break the tie here. The team most likely to turn the tide in their favor is Team BDS. 

Despite narrowly missing out on the LFL, they won every game they played in Group C at the European Masters Summer 2022. With a reshaped roster, this confidence and their recent performance, they have the power to beat Vitality.

GameWard vs X7 Esports

Predictions: X7 Esports to win

Odds:  1.83

When: September 18, 2022 – 17:00 CEST

There are four LFL representatives in the EU Masters playoffs and GameWard is the weakest of them all. The fourth seed will test the limits of its strength against NLC runner-up X7 Esports. X7 has a very talented and experienced roster. The comfort of having played at these levels before will make X7 very comfortable in this series.

GameWard had a flawless run in the group stage, winning all their matches. It’s safe to say that they are in top form. Despite this, X7 is one step ahead thanks to the quality of their play so far.
