The South Korean LCK group stage is about to reach its inevitable conclusion. The names of the 6 teams to qualify for the playoffs will be revealed at the end of March. Five teams have already secured passage to the decisive phase of the tournament, but one spot is still contested. Nobody is yet out of the playoffs picture, with Afreeca Freecs vs Nongshim RedForce and Fredit Brion vs Liiv Sandbox being the matches that could decide the final spot.
Afreeca Freecs vs Nongshim RedForce Decisive Match
KT Rolster is the only team from the bottom half of the standings yet to play four matches. All the other contenders have three games left, but they are likely to compete against weaker opposition. Afreeca Freecs and Nongshim RedForce play the first decisive match against each other on March 18.
Afreeca are mired in a four-game losing streak, but they have won the first match against Nongshim. The last games were played against the best LCK teams and we trust them to return to their winning ways. Luckbox offers exceptional odds of 3.30 on Afreeca Freecs to win the series by 2-0.
Fredit Brion vs Liiv Sandbox Last Chance Match
Liiv Sandbox have squandered some excellent opportunities in recent weeks after taking a commanding lead. Much to their credit, they were able to defeat Gen.G and surely have the quality to snowball early advantages. The reason they sit in the last place is their inability to close games in which they are ahead.
Fredit Brion have 5 victories and 11 defeats, so they are one place ahead of Liiv Sandbox. They are also the only team in the LCK to have defeated Damwon KIA this season. Add to this the fact that they already defeated Liiv Sandbox this season and the odds of 2.20 offered by Unikrn are simply irresistible.
