Samsung Galaxy vs Afreeca Freecs: 2017 Summer LCK Gauntlet preview, prediction & live stream

Samsung Galaxy collide with Afreeca Freecs on August 30! Which team will continue its journey through the LCK Gauntlet?

Samsung Galaxy had many things going for them until they were obliterated by SKT T1 in the second round of the playoffs. In the end, they were brought down by the same lack of side lane firepower that plagued them during the regular season. Combine that with Crown’s string of shaky performances, and Samsung are very far from their best form at the moment. The question is, can they pull it together?

Afreeca Freecs come into this match after a hard-fought Bo5 against MVP. And while they did walk away with the win, you can’t help but think they’ve shown a bit too much in that series. Their Draven and jungle Lulu picks won’t catch Samsung off guard and the fact Afreeca were pushed to the brink by the middling MVP lineup certainly doesn’t bode well for them either.
