G2 Esports vs Mad Lions KOI LEC Spring 2024 Playoffs: Predictions, Livestream Schedule, and More

Going through our G2 Esports vs Mad Lions KOI predictions to determine if Winter's standouts stand a better chance against the poster boys of dominance in the LEC.


One of the best rookie success stories in the region was Mad Lions KOI's meteoric rise in the standings of Winter 2024. Despite being mostly unseasoned, the newly-formed roster beat the odds and made it to Finals, only to be beaten by the LEC's best team: G2 Esports.

Spring Playoffs is in full swing, and all bets are off. With both of the previous finalists making another strong showing, we might just see history repeat itself.

Soon, the tested Spanish roster will go into their second bid for LEC victory. And this time, they won't be strangers to double-bracket deep runs. Will the embattled underdogs find a major stepping stone towards their first silver shield? Or will G2 dash their hopes in a brutal best-of-three (bo3) series?

Our G2 Esports vs Mad Lions KOI Prediction: A Slow Start for MDK

Comparing previous matches, G2's stronger performance in the standings makes them the likely winner in a bo3 series. Strong decision-making and clockwork macro makes them a dangerous adversary, so chances lean towards a G2 win today.

More Deep Runs in Their Pocket

G2 Esports has acted as an exemplar roster for close to a decade. Even at their worst, they still managed to eke out a few, big wins in last year's MSI tournament. And with more LEC split wins under their belt, they remain the safest bet in any situation.

G2 has repeatedly proven their prowess on every tournament level. Consistent improvements always put them on top of shifting metas and changing rosters — and nothing's changed in 2024.

Lessons From the Past

MAD Lions KOI does go in for unexpected hail mary plays that could potentially throw G2 off, but it's nothing the German org has never dealt with before. So any chance at a 2-1 win from Elyoya and co. will largely depend on how much they've analyzed G2 Esports' prowess in scrims.

G2 Esports vs MAD Lions KOI: Best Betting Odds

After keeping track of the stats, the odds for a G2 win are as high as ever. Here are the best bets you can make for G2 Esports vs MAD Lions KOI.

  • G2 Esports win: A hard-fought G2 win is in our sights as the roster shows no signs of slowing down, so don't hold your breath for an MDK reverse-sweep.
  • MAD Lions KOI First Blood: The Lions are ferocious as ever, and since they've taken the first kill out of most of their games, we're siding on MDK to get First Blood in G2 Esports vs MAD Lions KOI.
  • G2 Esports First Tower: Patience rewards those who practice it, and there's no better team in the LEC that embodies patience more than Caps and co., so expect MDK's towers to fall first.

MAD Lions vs G2 Esports Preview

You”ve heard our predictions and betting odds for MAD Lions KOI vs G2 Esports this Saturday, now let's go into the nitty gritty on how each team has fared so far — and what can improve their chances.

G2 Esports:

G2's had a fantastic run at Spring so far, but there's something to be said about their team composition. As high as their chances are in their upcoming series, if they zoom in too much on how meta their comp is, they'll lose sight of important advantages in the early game.

G2 Esports is considered by many to be the strongest team in the LEC. Not only have they won the most domestic trophies in EMEA, but they've also stayed consistent with their attendance to international championships like MSI and Worlds. The German team is made up of BrokenBlade, Yike, Caps, Hans Sama and Mikyx. The roster has remained unchanged for seven years.

G2 Esports Roster:

  • Toplaner: Sergen “BrokenBlade” Celik
  • Jungler: Martin “Yike” Sundelin
  • Midlaner: Rasmus “Caps” Winther
  • Botlaner: Steven “Hans sama” Liv
  • Support: Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle

MAD Lions vs G2 Esports Preview

MAD Lions KOI:

As much as we want to root for the scrappy lions this time around, their track record hasn't been too strong this split. They took a lot of losses from teams like Vitality and Rogue in the middle of bo1's, putting them in a dangerous spot in the standings.

While this is the case, the unseasoned group has gotten out of worse spots. And if MDK's team captain rallies the troops, they won't be licking their wounds for long.

Javier “Elyoya” Batalla is the star jungler for MAD Lions KOI, and is the only remaining member of the original MAD roster. But under his guidance, the team had an exciting winning streak in the Winter Split which put them face-to-face with G2 Esports in the Grand Final. So if this team can reproduce their Winter success, a win this early could possibly set them up for their first-ever Split victory.

MAD Lions KOI Roster:

  • Toplaner: Alex “Myrwn” Villarejo
  • Jungler: Javier “Jungler” Batalla
  • Midlaner: Bartłomiej “Fresskowy” Przewoźnik
  • Botlaner: David “Supa” García
  • Support: Álvaro “Alvaro” del Amo
