ImageThe event continues with yet another amazing clash. This time the Korean powerhouse Azubu Frost will face Fnatic - a team that has been putting up strong performances lately. Will this clash of the Continents turn into another classic? SK-Gaming bringing you full coverage!

Both teams won their first matches of the day, so this game might just be the first place decider. The Koreans are determined to top their group 3:0, but if there's any team that could upset their plans it's Fnatic.

KR Azubu Frost vs EU Fnatic

Azubu: Cho'Gath, Nunu, Lee Sin
Fnatic: Shen, Evelynn, Twisted Fate

Azubu: Olaf, Amumu, Taric, Urgot, Ryze
Fnatic: Kha'Zix, Miss Fortune, Leona, Jarvan IV, Ezreal


Even though there was no early aggression by either teams, Azubu Frost came out swinging - Getting first blood in just a matter of two minutes. Disaster stroke again for Fnatic the minute they came back on their lane - a perfect combination of timing and skill was delivering the Korean bot lane kill after kill.

Having that much advantage, that early on in the game, Azubu were securing global objectives without being contested - taking two consecutive dragons and continuing to lay horror on the bottom lane. Yellowstar and nRated were too far behind to come back, as they were forced to get gold and experience at their tower.

As soon as laning phase ended, with most of Azubu getting their core items, all eyes were on Baron Nashor. Naturally, the Korean team secured the buff without too much trouble. There was nothing, that Fnatic could do, but just try to defend their base for the next few minutes.

Azubu took their time and slowly pushed trough the middle lane, forcing the Europeans further back, then in a very one-sided teamfight (4 for 0), they secured the win and are now on top of group B, most certainly advancing to tomorrow's semi-finals!

Winner: KR Azubu Frost
