The man in the mid lane.. wait the jungle will be the key factor to determining the success of Cloud 9 in the second half of the group. If he can keep up his rock solid leadership and not get outclassed by Kakao or Reignover then Cloud 9 have a solid shot of getting out of this group.
The master of Holo hasn’t had the greatest performance in the groups so far, if Huni can return to form and give fnatic the explosiveness he had during the summer split then they can beat any team in this group. That said if he continues to have champion pool issues they can also lose to any team in this group.
Kakao is a beast in the jungle… most of the time. In the games IG loses kakao tends to revert to an extremely passive farm up style of jungling. If he can remember that he is the best jungler in this group and bully the others while keeping up map pressure then IG will have a much better shot at winning. Although if he keeps this passive farm style up then the bot lane has to step up.

Ziv is the Crown Jewel of the taiwanese top lane and one of the best top laners in this group. If he can be a consistent threat and use his teleport effectively then ahq will at least get a consistent advantage from him. If he can’t keep up this play then ahqs style reverts to flipping the coin and taking any fight presented to them.
