In the only game of the day for the 2022 LCK Spring Playoffs, we have fourth-placed DRX taking on fifth-placed Kwangdong Freecs. DRX won both meetings during the split, saluting 2-0 in week two and 2-1 in week eight.

DRX come into this playoff series on a two-game losing streak, going down 2-0 against both DWG KIA and T1. Meanwhile, Kwangdong Freecs come into this on a three-game win streak, beating Hanwha Life Esports and Liiv SANDBOX, then winning the one-map tiebreaker against Fredit Brion to secure fifth place.

DRX were dismantled by both DWG KIA and T1 in their last two games of the regular season, and that must have really hurt their confidence coming into the playoffs. DRX have had a solid split, but while they’ve shown that they can take care of the bottom-ranked teams, they struggle when it comes to the teams above them. Five of their seven losses have come against the three teams above them, with 10 of their 11 wins coming against all of the teams that sit below them. That said, the ladder positions for this matchup work in DRX’s favour, while they beat Kwangdong Freecs quite easily in their first series.

Kwangdong Freecs have been hot and cold this split with a 9-10 record, including the tiebreaker against Fredit Brion. Given the Freecs only just qualified for playoffs, they will have their work cut out in this encounter.

Kwangdong Freecs pushed DRX to three maps in the last series they played, during week eight. With this being a five-game series, it could definitely go the distance. However, DRX will be out to make a statement and, unfortunately for them, Kwangdong Freecs will be on the receiving end. The -1.5 match line for DRX at +120 with BetOnline is a good bet.
