Liiv Sandbox vs Gen.G
Liiv Sandbox has one of their toughest challenges ahead of them as they’ll go up against Gen.G, one of the two teams sitting at the very top of the standings. The team has impressed compared to their spring performance, showcasing solid teamfighting as well as good adaptability. A very interesting stat that Liiv Sandbox has is that they managed to beat all the teams below them in the standings, but lost 2-0 against the three teams above them, including Gen.G in the first round robin.
Liiv Sandbox don’t break their heads when it comes to drafting as they prefer to go for the always-reliable front-to-back compositions. ADC Prince and mid laner Clozer are responsible for dishing out the damage, with Dove mainly playing frontliners. The team has found comfort picks that are also strong in the meta, like Azir, Aphelios and Gnar.
On the other hand, Gen.G come into week 6 as the best performing team so far in the league. They only lost one series to T1, but they have looked less shaky in the last few weeks. They can always rely on their double carries Chovy and Ruler. In particular, the latter is performing exceptionally well, despite his age. Jungler Peanut is also playing really well, with smart pathings and always in the right spots. Overall, Gen.G look really solid and I don’t see them faltering any time soon.

DK vs DRX
DRX was one of the hottest teams in the league during the first few weeks of the competition, but things have changed now. They are coming into week 6 with a 5-5 score, but this team has a slightly higher potential than what they have demonstrated. Last week, DRX could not play with Pyosik due to him becoming positive to Covid-19 and due to the LCK regulations, he was forced to sit out. In his stead, the team fielded previous PSG jungler Juhan, who unfortunately is not at the same level as the starting jungler. I don’t think Pyosik will become negative by Friday so his absence should make this series a piece of cake for DK.
Speaking of them, the team has been stepping up in the last series, winning 2-0 their last three matches. While it was against lower-tier teams, this goes to show that DK are working hard to enter the fight for the top. Nuguri should be more or less back to good form after taking the break and with Canyon and ShowMaker, they make a very scary top side of the map.
I’m not fully convinced by their draft which still relies on less carry-oriented mid laners, but DK has always been good at early-mid games. As long as DK can keep up their current form, they shouldn’t have much trouble against a shaky DRX, though they shouldn’t sleep on their laurels as the regular season is coming to an end.
