FunPlus Phoenix strengthened its grip on third place in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) spring season standings with a 2-1 victory over Bilibili Gaming on Wednesday.

Top Esports jumped from 10th place to fifth place with their 2-0 win over JD Gaming. Oh My God moved into fourth place with a 2-0 win over winless Victory Five.

Week 4 continues Thursday with three matches:

--Rogue Warriors vs. Dominus Esports

--Suning vs. Team WE

--Vici Gaming vs. LGD Gaming

The China-based LPL shut down after the Jan. 19 matches due to the spread of the coronavirus, but it resumed March 9 in an online-only format. Players are competing from their teams' headquarters, but they were required to go through a 14-day quarantine before they were allowed to resume play.

The top eight teams from the spring season will advance to the single-elimination playoffs. All playoff matches will be best-of-five, with the winner clinching a berth in the 2020 Mid-Season Invitational, which will include the top teams from all of the League of Legends regions.
