Meanwhile, this next match-up will likely reflect the Regular Season standings. Although FENNEL suffered a tough yet expected loss to SoftBan HAWKS, they performed rather well.

On the other hand, AXIZ are the seventh seed from the LJL Summer Regular Season and are not favoured to win according to the League of Legends betting sites.

Indeed, FENNEL are predicted to bounce back here and remind everyone how they earned their third seed at the LJL Summer Regular Season. .

Yet, it may be one to forget for SHG, considering that DetonatioN FocusMe is heavily favoured in this particular match-up. Indeed, DetonatioN FocusMe look to continue their dominant run and their consistent participation at Worlds 2023.

That’s why DFM are heavily favoured and SoftBank are the underdogs.
