After a week’s hiatus on account of the coronavirus, the LEC returns as an online event. We take a look at some teams to back from the first round of this weekend’s action.
Misfits have been in decent touch right from the outset of the LEC. They are 9-5 for the Spring Split so far, which puts them fourth in the competition. However, Schalke’s continued struggles is also a major reason for backing Misfits in this game. Febiven has been in steady form for Misfits, which will aid their offensive game.
After four consecutive losses, Schalke finally broke their rut with a win against SK Gaming. But that might not bolster their confidence much considering SK Gaming are positioned below themselves in the LEC table.
Personnel can be a major influential factor in LoL. A subtle difference in skill can impact the game severely. Big differences can effectively kill games. Rekkles’ sensational form might have the same impact on this match. Rekkles has the highest KDA in the Spring Split of the LEC so far, currently at 8.76. He is also leading the LEC in kills per game (5.5).
That offensive power might be hard to match for any team, let alone Excel, who have split their 14 matches so far. Fnatic have been in strong touch, which has led to their ascent up the Spring standings, up to second with 10 wins in 14 matches. They are coming off a loss to G2 Esports, which will hurt them. They will want to bounce back with a strong statement.
G2 Esports (1.21)
It’s no surprise that G2 are leading the LEC Spring standings with 11 wins in 14 matches. They have been ably led by Caps and Perkz. That strong ADC-Mid laner association has held G2’s offensive prowess in good stead. Other teams have just not been able to stay abreast with that aggression.
Rogue have not had a bad season at all. They have won nine of 14 matches, including four wins in their last five. However, G2 might be too strong in this particular contest.
