Team Liquid decided not to change their roster before the summer split. This decision is due to the fact that in the spring they took second place, only slightly losing to Cloud9 in the final of the Mid-Season Showdown. It will be interesting to see the team in the new meta, as their crown champions are extremely strong in the current patch.
TSM also did not change their roster since the last split, however, many fans had a question about the advisability of buying SwordArt: it was expected that a talented support from Asia would be able to lead the team to victory, but he himself was often criticized, what can we say about his teammates.
During this season, the teams played 3 matches with each other. TSM had two victories in BO1 format, Team Liquid were stronger in BO5.
Prediction for the match: Team Liquid vs Team SoloMid
It's worth noting that the split will kick off at patch 11.11 and there is a wide variety of picks in the Academies Championship that started earlier, so it will be difficult to predict what teams are playing.
Liquid look stronger on paper, but they can easily throw almost any game, and TSM are famous for their ideal use of the opponent's weak moments.
Bookmakers give 1.65 for Team Liquid to win and 2.15 for TSM. Considering all of the above factors, we recommend betting on Team SoloMid.
