Team SoloMid ended spring on a 11-1 tear in the regular season, and while their one loss was to Cloud9 (the team they met in semifinals,) they rose above and moved on 3-2. 

After looking dominant for most of the Spring Split, Team Liquid ended the regular season looking shaky losing three straight matches to FlyQuest, Echo Fox, and TSM. TL looked more like their old selves in the semifinals where they dominated FlyQuest 3-0.

This North American rivalry runs deep, and this time they fight for the first LCS banner of 2019. Not only that, but both team’s owners, confident in their sides, have also bet $100k on this split finals. So who finishes strong in this best-of-five grudge match? 

Let’s break it down lane by lane.
