DAMWON Gaming vs. G2 Esports – Saturday, October 24, 2020
We are only down to four teams in the LoL Worlds Main Event 2020 and three of them are from the Asian region. The only other squad left is G2 Esports and the Europeans will face DAMWON Gaming in the semifinals.
Both sides have been impressive up to this point and didn’t lose a single game in the quarterfinals. Their upcoming clash should be epic and I share my thoughts in this DAMWON Gaming vs. G2 Esports betting preview. The post includes the latest odds, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

DAMWON Gaming Team Analysis
If I had to select one team that impressed me the most so far in the Worlds 2020, it has to be DAMWON Gaming. The squad dominated Group B of the competition and then destroyed DRX in the quarterfinals to reach the last 4.
We all knew that this is one of the favorites, but I’m not sure if anyone thought that DAMWON would be that good. The team has been flawless in terms of macro strategy and always finds the best timing to take objectives or at least prevent the opponent from doing the same.
Controlling the map is another strength of DAMWOON and every player is exceptional from a mechanical standpoint. It’s close to impossible to beat such a team, but let’s not forget that the South Koreans were strong in 2019 as well, before losing to G2 in the quarterfinals.
G2 Esports Team Analysis
I must admit I was fooled by G2’s struggles in the early stages and I thought that the team might be out of shape. The reality is that the squad was in one of the toughest groups and we saw the true power of the side in the quarterfinals.
G2 Esports destroyed Gen.G and looked excellent in the process. Caps has been the start of the show, but the rest of the team has stepped up big time as well. We saw strong drafting and phenomenal team fighting, as the highlights below demonstrate.
On the negative side, you can also see how G2 had some problems in the early game. The team can’t afford the same against DAMWOON because the opponent will punish every weakness.
DAMWON Gaming vs. G2 Esports Pick
DAMWON Gaming will be hungry to find revenge for losing against G2 last year and I believe that the Koreans have a solid shot at getting it. And yet, the opponent won’t go down without a fight and I won’t be shocked to see this one go the distance. The price of +187 for over 4.5 games is too tempting and that’s my final pick.
