Before the friendly match between the Korean and Vietnamese League of Legends teams took place, many viewers judged this to be an unequal encounter.

The Vietnamese team was even rated higher than a famous team in Europe, MAD Lions (MAD). ) when they don’t have to suffer a “crushing” defeat like them.
The international community appreciates the Vietnamese team more than MAD when they did not lose as quickly as this team at MSI 2023.

Meanwhile, the Vietnamese team had more fierce resistance and only lost to Korea after 17 minutes and 35 seconds. It is important to know that MAD’s loss was much more severe because it took place at the official tournament, MSI. While the Vietnamese team only failed in one friendly match.
Fortunately, the Vietnamese team did not repeat MAD’s defeat after only 16 minutes and 47 seconds
In short, although they could not win the recent friendly match, the Vietnamese team still showed positive points. Having a friendly match with a strong team like Korea is an extremely good training opportunity for Vietnamese boys. Hopefully they can learn valuable lessons from the recent match and compete successfully in the upcoming ASIAD.
