League of Legends bookmakers have FunPlus Phoenix priced as 1.28 favourites to defeat ThunderTalk Gaming on Monday. While it may seem like a big price to pay, it's actually a cheap offer on what is unquestionably a much better team.

  • FunPlus Phoenix can still end the season inside the top four
  • ThunderTalk Gaming's season has already ended
  • One team needs this win much more than the other

Head to Head


FunPlus Phoenix and ThunderTalk Gaming have yet to meet this season.

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix are 10-5, tied with Ninjas in Pyjamas, with who they're still in a battle for a top-four finish in the LPL 2024 Spring regular season. They could be in a much more favourable position, however, FunPlus Phoenix lost their last game against Royal Never Give Up.

It was a shocking defeat which shouldn't have happened and it puts a huge question mark above FunPlus Phoenix and their strength. Still, prior to that shock loss, FunPlus Phoenix have been performing well, and it wasn't until the end of Week 7 that they started showing cracks.

Whether that's an indication of FunPlus Phoenix losing traction or just an off-week remains to be seen.

ThunderTalk Gaming Form


ThunderTalk Gaming are 6-9 ahead of their final match of LPL 2024 Spring. They've done evry little to make themselves seem competitive this split and have picked up just two wins from their last four – against Team WE and LGD Gaming. Their two losses over that stretch came against Ninas in Pyjamas and Top Esports.

Losing to NiP and Top Esports isn't too concerning, but throughout the season, ThunderTalk Gaming have not looked as good as some top contenders. FunPlus Phoenix are a bit of a yes-and-no on whether they're a top contender, but they've definitely shown that they belong among the top five, which is a category of teams ThunderTalk Gaming haven't done well against.

No announced changes for ThunderTalk Gaming.

  • 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

ThunderTalk Gaming have side choice for this match, which should help, but it's tough to believe that will be enough for them to take down FunPlus Phoenix. On a more positive note, FunPlus Phoenix haven't looked great recently, but they're still a superior team in all aspects of the game.

As long as FunPlus Phoenix perform to the best of their ability – as they should since it's an important match for them – we can expect a clean victory from them. And I'm far more convinced that this will happen than ThunderTalk Gaming finding a way to surprise FunPlus Phoenix.
