RNG select Evil Geniuses as MSI knockout stage opponent, G2 to face T1

The matchups for the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational knockout stage are set. Royal Never Give Up have selected Evil Geniuses as the team they want to play in the semifinals of the knockout stage, leaving T1 and G2 Esports to play each other in the other semifinal match. 

The first-place finisher in the rumble stage reserves the right to choose both their opponent in the knockout stage as well as the date on which they play their first knockout stage match, according to rule 6.4.1 of the Mid-Season Invitational rulebook. Since RNG finished atop the rumble stage standings, they were able to choose between G2 and EG—the rumble stage’s third and fourth place finishers, respectively—as their possible opponent for the semifinals.
