KT vs. DRX
When KT played AF there was a good chance that KT had the players and style to punish AF's mistakes but that wasn't the case. This is going to be a one-sided match because DragonX is a better version of Afreeca in terms of macro and team fighting. KT has been good in the early game, supporting a 69 percent first blood rate, which is second-best in the league. However, for a team full of veterans, they lose hard in the mid-to-late game. They have a negative rating as they are not good at snowballing teams because of certain drafts, and how much they stop being proactive after taking leads. DragonX has the best mid-to-late game rating in the league, and they are on a different level than most teams, and this is a spot where the upside might be limited because KT have one of the lowest death per loss among teams on the slate.
Prediction: DRX 2-0
