T1 vs Team Liquid Prediction


T1 and Team Liquid will meet on Saturday, July 6, 2024, in the second round of the League of Legends Esports World Cup 2024. It'll mark their second meeting of the 2024 season, and according to the esports betting odds, T1 should win with ease.

League of Legends bookmakers have T1 priced as 1.03 favourites to defeat Team Liquid, who enter the match as 9.00 underdogs with Stake. This major price difference isn't that shocking, but at 9.00, you have to wonder whether backing Team Liquid makes more sense.

  • T1 are one of the world's best teams
  • Team Liquid lost their last match against T1 in May
  • The winner proceeds to the finals

Head to Head


T1 and Team Liquid last met during the Mid-Season Invitational, when T1 won.

  • T1 3-1 Team Liquid – May 15, 2024

T1 Form


T1 got off to an excellent start to their Esports World Cup 2024 campaign. The Korean LoL esports juggernauts defeated the Mid-Season Invitational 2024 finalist Bilibili Gaming in three maps (2-1), which sets them up for a relatively easy path to the finals.

It was a back-and-forth series, which could've ended either way, but T1 got there. The sloppiness of the series doesn't take away from T1's victory, but it's also hard to praise either side for their performance.

Some of it likely has to do with the fact that T1 nor Bilibili Gaming haven't had much time to practice ahead of the tournament and it shows.

T1 Squad & Team News


No roster changes for T1.

  • Choi "Zeus" Woo-je – top lane
  • Mun "Oner" Hyeon-jun – jungle
  • Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok – mid lane
  • Lee "Gumayusi" Min-hyeong – ADC
  • Ryu "Keria" Min-seok – support

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid kicked off the Esports World Cup 2024 with a huge upset win against Fnatic in the first round, beating their European rivals in two maps. It was a big win for Liquid but also a complete no-show from Fnatic.

Considering how Fnatic played on the day, I wouldn't praise Team Liquid too much, as that victory doesn't prove Liquid belong among the elite few LoL esports teams – far from it.

Liquid already showed how easily they crumble when faced with an actual title contender at MSI 2024, where the same story played out. They upset Fnatic only to meet with T1, who crushed them 3-1. Liquid did take a map that day, so if that holds any value, their chances of upsetting T1 in a BO3 are statistically higher. 

That doesn't mean it'll happen.

No changes for Team Liquid.

  • Jeong "Impact" Eon-young – top lane
  • Um "UmTi" Sung-hyeon – jungle
  • Eain "APA" Stearns – mid lane
  • Sean "Yeon" Sung – ADC
  • Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-in – support

Verdict

Team Liquid don't deserve much praise for beating Fnatic, who produced one of their worst games of the 2024 season in the first round. Likewise, T1 didn't look great against Bilibili Gaming, but they earned that win and beating one of the top LoL esports teams isn't a small feat.

T1 should win this match with ease and the betting odds reflect it. But at the current prices, this match forces you to either back the underdogs or pass.

We're getting 3.30 on Liquid to take one map, which is a fair offer. And as much as T1 should never lose to Liquid, the lack of prep time – which led to worse performances of all teams in round one – could help Team Liquid get there.
