G2 Esports vs KOI Predictions

G2 Esports and KOI will cross swords on Sunday, July 2, in the penultimate round of the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) 2023 Summer regular season. G2 Esports are expected to win comfortably, which sounds fair, but there seems to be a real chance this game is closer than expected.

G2 Esports are priced as 1.25 favourites for their upcoming match against KOI, who enter the game as 3.75 underdogs. Seeing G2 priced as such big favourites makes sense since this is undeniably the best team in the league; however, they’re also known for screwing around too much in their games, which could open up an opportunity for KOI to cause an upset.

  • G2 Esports have lost just one game this split
  • KOI are 3-4 and desperately need to win on Sunday
  • G2 Esports are not to be trusted as big favourites

Head to Head

G2 Esports and KOI last met in LEC 2023 Spring Groups when KOI won the first match (2-1) but lost the decider 1-2.

  • KOI 2-1 G2 Esports – April 9, 2023
  • G2 Esports 2-1 KOI – April 16, 2023

G2 Esports Form

G2 Esports are 6-1 and have already secured a spot in LEC 2023 Summer Groups, so technically, they have nothing more to fight for. And they’re playing like it.

Despite being the best team in the LEC, G2 Esports have yet to show their true potential, and watching them play unveils that G2 Esports like to play around with their food too much. With how good G2 are, they could’ve smashed every team in the league, yet they like to screw around and give up way too much in their games.

Ultimately, G2 Esports still win, which is a strong testament to their quality, but they lack focus. Perhaps they’re just limit testing, but the disrespectful approach to their games will get punished sooner or later.

G2 Esports won’t make any changes.

  • Martin "Yike" Sundelin – jungle
  • Rasmus "Caps" Borregaard – mid lane

KOI Form

KOI are 3-4, which sits them in a tied fifth place in the LEC 2023 Summer regular season standings with Excel Esports and Astralis. This is not the best position to be in since there’s still a chance KOI finish the bottom two, but that’s highly unlikely to happen.

Last week, KOI lost against Fnatic, bounced back with a win against Team Heretics, but stumbled against SK Gaming. On a more positive note, they defeated the struggling Vitality on Saturday, which was an extremely important win for them.

KOI haven’t shown much this split, but they’re slowly figuring things out and look like a solid mid-table team. But most importantly, KOI tend to perform better when faced with stronger teams, so there is a chance they make G2 Esports work hard for the win on Sunday.

KOI Squad & Team News

No changes for KOI.

  • Mathias "Szygenda" Jensen – top lane
  • Kim "Malrang" Geun-seong – jungle
  • Emil "Larssen" Larsson – mid lane
  • Markos "Comp" Stamkopoulos – ADC
  • Henk "Advienne" Reijenga – support


G2 Esports are priced as massive favourites to defeat KOI, and rightly so. This is undeniably the best team in the LEC, which makes it tough to bet against them regardless of who they face. That said, G2 Esports are also not to be trusted as big favourites.

Despite having an incredibly high ceiling, G2 Esports just don’t feel like showing what they’re capable of. They get themselves in a winning situation only to give it all away and yet still somehow come out on top in most of their games. This is either a case of poor focus or limit testing, but whatever the case, G2 Esports are not putting up the performances they’re capable of.

So as much as this is G2 Esports’ game to lose, I prefer KOI with a 7.5-kill handicap. G2 Esports should win, but based on what they’ve shown this split, there seems to be a real possibility this match will be much closer than expected.
