Featured Match: Team Liquid vs Phoenix1

Team Liquid and Phoenix1 are facing off today as we wrap up the second week in the 2017 NA LCS/Spring Split and both teams are jostling for second place as Cloud9 and the previous Cloud9 Challengers (now calling themselves FlyQuest) take up second and first respectively. The two have only faced off once before at the LCS NA Summer Split 2016, where Team Liquid convincingly beat Phoenix1 2:1.

Things have changed on both sides since then however, with Dardoch, Fabbbyyy and FeniX all departing from Team Liquid, and Gate, Marsh, Slooshi and Fixer all departing from Phoenix. Will these roster changes be enough to tip the odds in Phoenix’s favour? We’re still looking at Team Liquid to clinch this one, but it’s clear that this is anybody’s game and it’s still early days in the split. Place your bets now!
