We are close to finding out who the finest League of Legends team on the planet is as G2 Esports take on FunPlus Phoenix in the 2019 LoL Worlds final in Paris on Sunday.
The betting odds on G2 vs FPX for most markets show there is hardly anything to choose between the Europeans and the Chinese ahead of the best-of-five match, which is due to start at 12pm GMT / 1pm CET.
LoL Worlds 2019 has been one of the most memorable League of Legends World Championships in history and Sunday's final promises to be a classic.

Boukev's LoL Worlds 2019 final predictions
One match to go to decide the world champion of League of Legends. It is hard to analyse a possible winner with these teams seeming to be so close in strength during the road to Worlds and within the games Worlds itself.
I had to scour the statistics for some valid data to support my decision in this matchup and it was like searching for a needle in a haystack.
One thing I found, in this Worlds so far, is that FPX have won six rounds in a time well below 29 minutes, showing their dominant performance and raw power against some opponents but also had some long-duration clutches.
G2 Esports, on the other hand, have won most matches around a steady 30 to 34 minutes, showing that their plan and execution was solid and measured.
Fast, furious and FunPlus
I had picked Funplus Phoenix as the winner at the start of the tournament but was very surprised with their difficulty in the group stage against J team. I also didn't expect the final to be against G2 esports who has been strong and have only showed real weakness against Griffin so far.
To summarise, I am predicting two fast round to go to FPX as the winner. One won at draft round to go G2's way and a final insanely close and long round to see FPX to win Worlds.
