ROGUE VS FNATIC LEC SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
After suffering a painful defeat against MAD Lions on Saturday, Fnatic will look to bounce back and claim their sixth win of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) 2020 season when they face an in-form Rogue this Friday.
Fnatic will enter Week 5 of the LEC Spring Split following a rather slow start of the season, which saw them win five of the first eight fixtures. While they defeated Misfits, Schalke 04, SK Gaming, Excel Esports and Vitality, they failed to see the same success against Origen, G2 Esports and most recently MAD Lions.
Although Fnatic are known to be a little sluggish getting out of the gates, that is no excuse for the performance against MAD Lions last weekend. They appear to have a solid plan on how to win their games, yet there is an issue when it comes to execution.
The player that stood out on Saturday was Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov, who ended the bout with a 0/9/4 record and had next to zero impact on the game. With a 1.93 KDA and 56.9% KPAR, the Bulgarian support is averaging some of the worst numbers out of all support mains in the LEC this season. That is a huge issue, considering Fnatic rely heavily on their bottom lane.
Rogue will enter their clash with Fnatic following a perfect 2-0 week when they bested Schalke 04 and SK Gaming. Although it is hard to praise them too much for defeating two of the worst teams in the league, Rogue completely outclassed their opponents, which suggests they are ready to go toe-to-toe with the stronger teams in the league.
We are not quite ready to say Rogue are guaranteed a playoff spot, but they have improved out of sight since last season. The main reason for their progress is Steven “Hans Sama” Liv, who arrived in November after ending his three-year association with Misfits Gaming.
Four weeks in, Hans Sama is one of the top ADC mains, averaging 5.55 KDA (fourth-best) and 435 GPM (fifth-best). While he can have his moments of inconsistency, the French star looked very solid last week. We would like to see him play a bit more aggressively, but he has delivered when it matters so far.
ROGUE VS FNATIC LEC SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
The bottom lane will dictate the tempo of this match, although we cannot completely ignore the mid lane.
The main two carries for Fnatic are Martin “Rekkles” Larsson and their mid laner, Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek. The latter will face off against Emil “Larssen” Larsson, who has put up solid numbers so far. While we have yet to see him reach his full potential, Larssen rarely underperforms and looks a good bet to stand his ground in the mid lane.
The odds suggest Fnatic should come out on top here; however, due to their lacklustre performance last week, we would not feel comfortable siding with them at the quoted price. It seems like Rogue and Fnatic will match up nicely, which points to close contest.
The total kills line is set at 24.5, which looks within the reach for the two sides, especially if Hylissang fails to improve upon his performance against MAD Lions.
