League of Legends bookmakers have FunPlus Phoenix priced as 1.14 favourites to defeat Royal Never Give Up, who enter the match as 5.00 underdogs. Since RNG are already eliminated from the LPL 2024 Spring playoffs and FPX have established themselves as a highly competitive side, this offer sounds fair.

  • FunPlus Phoenix are 10-4
  • Royal Never Give Up have won just four series this split
  • FunPlus Phoenix are quite pricey

Head to Head


Royal Never Give Up and FunPlus Phoenix have never met before.

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix are 10-4 and guaranteed to end the season inside the top five, but they still have some work to do to lock in a better placement. This should come relatively easy, given that FunPlus Phoenix's next two opponents are Royal Never Give Up and ThunderTalk Gaming, neither of whom are considered good teams.

FunPlus Phoenix enter this match on a three-game winning streak, having beaten Rare Atom, Invictus Gaming, and JD Gaming over the last week. But even before that run, FunPlus Phoenix have posted good results, and their only loss since Week 2 came against Bilibili Gaming.

FunPlus Phoenix Squad & Team News


  • Ping "Xiaolaohu" Xiao-Hu – top lane
  • Cai "milkyway" Zi-Jun – jungle
  • Yang "Care" Jie – mid lane
  • Seo "Deokdam" Dae-gil – ADC
  • Kim "Life" Jeong-min – support

Royal Never Give Up Form


With a 4-10 record, Royal Never Give Up have nothing left to fight for this split, as they won't be making the playoffs. This is more than justifiable, considering their performances over the last seven weeks.

Royal Never Give Up have been struggling a lot throughout the LPL 2024 Spring regular season, mainly due to their poor macro decisions, which often were the main cause of their losses. The same issues persisted against weaker and stronger teams, with RNG giving us very few reasons to trust them either as underdogs or favourites.

They picked up a win against Anyone's Legend on Wednesday, but even that is hardly impressive, and it doesn't change the fact that Royal Never Give Up have not accomplished much this split.

Royal Never Give Up Squad & Team News


No announced changes for Royal Never Give Up.

  • Yoon "HOYA" Yong-ho – top lane
  • Yang "Beichuan" Ling – jungle
  • Son "ucal" Woo-hyeon – mid lane
  • Li "1xn" Xiu-Nan – ADC
  • Zhang "QiuQiu" Ming – support

Verdict

We're paying a premium to back FunPlus Phoenix in this contest, but even at 1.66 to cover the map handicap, they're an obvious choice. FunPlus Phoenix need to end the season with two wins, whereas Royal Never Give Up can no longer improve their final placement.

Besides the urgency, FunPlus Phoenix are also a significantly better team, which they've proven numerous times this split. There's a world where Royal Never Give Up surprises FunPlus Phoenix with some unusual team compositions, but their lack of macro understanding should prevent any major upsets.
