Esports: Evil Geniuses book semi-final spot

League of Legends side Evil Geniuses have booked their place in the semi-finals of the Mid-Season Invitational 2022 after defeating PSG Talon in the Rumble Stage.

In the League of Legends LVP Superliga Summer, meanwhile, Giants are 4/9 to beat Movistar Riders, who are 13/8 to win in the match on Monday.

The match with PSG Talon was a cagey one until Evil Geniuses swung the game in their favour with teamfight successes and the capture of dragon - Rift Herald - as well as plenty of gold.

Evil Geniuses put their foot down and got the job done in their penultimate Rumble Stage encounter, booking their spot in the knockouts with a match to spare.

They will join T1 and Royal Never Give Up in the competition's last four with the final berth set to be decided on Tuesday.

That marked PSG Talon's fifth defeat on the spin, whereas Evil Geniuses have been fairly comfortable in the Rumble Stage with five wins from their first nine matches.

That is actually an improvement on the North American representatives' performance in the first group stage, in which they finished with a 4-4 record.

They can now relax knowing that they are guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals of the Mid-Season Invitational, which has a prize pool of around $250,000 and remains one of the most prestigious events on the League of Legends circuit.

Following the win, the Evil Geniuses Twitter account simply posted: "We're moving on to the knockout stage!"
