The match started with both teams competing for supremacy from the first minute. Gao “Ning” Zhen-Ning tried to get IG on the front foot. Yet against the odds, Liquid came out on top with an incredible defensive display. The frustrated CHinese team then took unnecessary fights in the hopes of catching out Liquid on the back foot. They even got the Baron Buff and took one objective after the other.
