Fnatic will be hoping to keep their League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) 2023 Summer Season Finals dreams alive when they take on Team Heretics this Friday.

Fnatic’s shock 0-2 loss against SK Gaming in the opening round of LEC 2023 Summer Groups was a bit concerning, but they have since dusted themselves off and smashed MAD Lions (2-0) and got their revenge against SK (2-0). If we zoom out, Fnatic have looked like one of the best teams in the league this split.

Team Heretics have exceeded expectations, but they’re not serious title contenders. The eye test proves that while Heretics are good, they have a lot of things to iron out, while their performance metrics are fairly average.

Fnatic can have their off games, and we’ve seen how easily they can get punished by good map movement. But the problem is that Team Heretics haven’t shown the qualities needed to make life harder for Fnatic.

For one, Fnatic are much stronger across all five positions – except for maybe jungle, where Heretics field Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski. Yet even that might not be enough for Heretics to cause meaningful damage to Fnatic. Iván “Razork” Martín Díaz has been phenomenal over the last six games, but even if he gets shut down, it’s not like Fnatic play around their jungler.

We’ve seen Fnatic lose maps they shouldn’t have before; however, they’re individually much better than Heretics, so unless something goes wrong, Fnatic should have a relatively easy time getting the win Friday. A smaller play on Fnatic to sweep at +200 or better is worth considering.
