MAD Lions have outplayed Rogue and will face G2 in the second round of the Upper Playoff Bracket.
Rogue got the first card pretty easily. The advantage was always on their side, and many expected 3-0, but already on the second map, the lions made it clear that there would be no easy walk and turned the meeting upside down.
On the third map Rogue seemed to be lost and already MAD Lions calmly took the second point in this meeting for themselves.
On the final map, MAD Lions decided to surprise their opponent with Urgot to the top and they did it. The decisive fight was on the fourth dragon, which the lions, although they could not take, but profitably exchanged it and were able to get a decisive advantage. After the fight at the baron, the game was over.
Rogue will face the winner of the pair Fnatic vs FC Schalke 04 in Round 3 of the Lower Bracket.
