The second LEC 2021 Spring playoff match of the season promises to be a very one-sided affair. Schalke 04 finished the regular season in a very respectable fourth place, yet LoL betting sites have them priced as massive underdogs for their clash with G2 Esports this weekend.
While we have seen S04 succeed in this matchup before, winning a one-off clash is significantly easier than doing the same in a best-of-five environment – especially against one of the most efficient best-of teams in the world. G2 are exceptionally versatile and possess the ability to play many different playstyles, which makes them a tough team to prepare for.

S04 found plenty of success with more teamfighting-oriented compositions throughout the regular season but started to struggle once switching to a Tristana-Nidalee setup, so they will likely look to use the former approach here. The problem is that G2 have found success with many different playstyles and are better at teamfighting than S04.
Schalke 04’s other strength is their flexibility with their picks, but that comes more in scaling and teamfighting rather than early-game strength, which is a huge stylistic problem for this bout. While we believe S04 have the tools to make the series exciting and close, G2 are a much stronger team and shouldn’t drop a map.
