Worlds 2019 quarterfinals conclude, final four decided

With 3-1s across the board, the favourites triumphed ahead of the semifinals of the League of Legends 2019 World Championship.

Griffin and Fnatic fell in the first bracket as Invictus Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix won on the first day of quarterfinal matches.

Invictus Gaming will be looking to get back-to-back Worlds victories after their success last year. Newcomer FunPlus Phoenix stand between them and the grandfinal and while FPX are the least experienced team left in the playoffs after the fall of Griffin, they should not be written off and could more than give the reigning champions a challenge.

Splyce and DAMWON Gaming couldn’t make it through the second bracket with SK Telecom T1 and G2 Esports ensured their Midseason Invitational rematch in the semifinal.

Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok’s SK Telecom T1 still lead the odds to take the 2019 Worlds trophy as three-time world champions, but semifinal a matchup against a G2 team that defeated them at the Midseason Invitational leaves the title wide open with no certain finalist in the bracket.

While Faker remains the iconic name, jungler Kim "Clid" Tae-min joined SKT this year and could well cement his status as the best jungler in the world with a Worlds title to back it up if G2's Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski cannot match him in the semifinal.

G2 have the European crowd on their side, with their dominance in the LEC and Spanish ties thanks to CEO Carlos "ocelote" Rodriguez, but will need to bring the same energy from outside of the server into Summoner's Rift.

All of the Worlds 2019 semifinal action will be broadcast live on the official Riot Games Twitch and YouTube channels on 2nd-3rd November, before the finals on 10th November at the Accorhotels Arena in Paris.
