SANDBOX Gaming is currently ranked 7th. During the break, the team added two players from the academy to the starting lineup. In the spring split, they were constantly dark horses, which, although they are at the bottom of the standings, can always create big problems for the top echelon teams.
With each game, Hanwha Life Esports is getting better and better at confirming that League of Legends is played by 5 people, not 1. Chovy, although he is the strongest midlaner on the planet, is not able to withstand full-fledged teams that harmoniously control their actions on the map. Two 0:2 defeats at the beginning of the summer certainly do not bury HLE's chances, but they raise big questions about their participation in the split playoffs.
The teams met 2 times this season. Each of the teams won one victory.
Prediction for the match: SANDBOX Gaming vs Hanwha Life Esports
SANDBOX definitely cannot be called a team that can qualify for the Worlds, but they can well compete for a place in the playoffs at this stage. In the spring they managed to beat HLE just at the beginning of the split, from which we can conclude that now the team has the strength to fight even with strong teams.
HLE seems to have stalled in its progress: there is a complete stagnation in strategies, picks and play. While all teams have rebuilt their game based on the meta, Hanwha Life Esports is constantly building it around Chovy and it stops paying off.
Bookmakers give 1.35 for Hanwha Life Esports and 3.05 for SANDBOX Gaming to win. Considering all of the above factors, we recommend betting on SBG to win.
