DAMWON KIA has been dominating the whole world for 8 months and there are no prerequisites for the end of their era. The whole team seems to be head and shoulders above the opponents in every game, and, having moved from T1, kkOma gave the team absolute confidence in their actions. 2 losses in the group stage can be called "slight fatigue", besides, DAMWON KIA have the lowest number of lost cards among all teams this season - 10 out of 43.
HLE defeated Nongshim RedForce in a tough match, although many considered them to be the clear favorites. In the quarterfinals, it was clear that Chovy was practically pulling the whole team behind him, and if that was enough against Peanut's team, then this would not work against world champions.
This season the teams met 2 times and both times the victory was won by the DAMWON KIA team.
Prediction for the match: DAMWON KIA vs Hanwha Life Esports
DWG looks unwavering. The individual strength of each team member is simply amazing and makes them contenders for a successful performance at this World Championship.
In HLE, as mentioned earlier, only Chovy stands out, but even he cannot be compared with ShowMaker, since he almost never makes mistakes, and excellent macro play will not allow the HLE mid lane to drag "1 against 9".
Bookmakers give 1.15 for DAMWON KIA and 5.00 for HLE. Considering all of the above factors, we recommend betting 3-0 from DAMWON KIA with a coefficient of 2.62.
