LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 6 Preview
We took some time off but so did the LEC so we didn't miss much with this league, but we are back and the table is still pretty jaw ...
Game times are getting longer and longer and the LEC is starting to look like the LCK. We are almost to the end of the first Round Robin and the next two weeks will surely separate the rest of the table. G2 Esports sits atop the table with a nice 6-0 scoreline and the 2nd place four way tie all have a 4-2 record with two more teams sitting at a 3-3 record. The surprising MAD Lions have the hardest schedule this week, facing both Origen and Fnatic. Misfits Gaming has also turned a few heads, but come face to face with G2 Esports.Team Vitality and Schalke 04, who are still lagging behind the rest of the table with a 0-6 scoreline, are in a tight spot as Vitality faces Fnatic and Misfits, while Schalke meets Rogue and SK Gaming. If you want to keep your playoff hopes alive, you have to win.

This match is very important for both teams in regards to the standings, but with the addition of the fact that Origen has its roots in Spain, despite its current Danish ownership, and today the Spanish flag is held high by MAD Lions.
Both teams start the match in second place with four wins and two losses. For Origen this is a little lackluster, while MAD Lions have outperformed all expectations. MAD Lions lost to Excel and Origen lost to Misfits during the season. Overall showing quite similar power from both sides. Despite a top spot on the league table, both teams have had ups and downs in the first half of the season, so this match helps differentiate the teams from one another. For MAD Lions, the outcome of this match is especially important, as they will face Fnatic and Misfits before the end of the first Round Robin.
Bot Lane will be quite the show while the rest of the positions will be highly contested. As long as both teams play as they have been we are in for quite the show.
Excel Esports - SK Gaming
SK Gaming is in danger of falling behind in the playoff race, so winning this match is very important. On the other hand, Excel also needs a win to stay close to the 4-2 result. So the stakes in this match are high. However, when looking at the teams' previous matches, Excel has been a much stronger team all around, leaving them as the relatively clear favorite.
Team Vitality - Fnatic
Probably one of the week's most one-sided games. The only other match vying for this title would be G2 vs Schalke. Fnatic should go 5-2 and will be very happy going into Saturday's match.
Rogue - Schalke 04
Schalke has imploded since the end of the week last week and with so much turmoil it’s hard to believe that they can come back from the deficit they’ve accrued. Rogue should handily win this one even on their worst day.
G2 Esports - Misfits Gaming
Misfits Gaming surprised Origen last week but now they’re up against G2 and not too many think that Misfits can pull off this upset. G2 are playing spectacularly and don’t appear to be stoppable.
Misfits Gaming - Team Vitality
Misfits may not do so hot against G2 but their stats and win/loss should get padded here and bring some joy back to the squad. Team Vitality is unlikely to steal a win here and the hope is starting to dwindle.
SK Gaming - Rogue
Rogue needs success and SK Gaming struggles to find a safe playoff postion. Rogue, however, has been a much better team and I strongly believe SK is too far gone to pick up a win here. Rogue has been a very strong middle of the pack team all season and can start a nice run with this game.
Schalke 04 - G2 Esports
Unless G2 attempts to make the game exciting with an absolutely crazy draft that manages to lose the early game, there probably still isn’t much G2 could mess up that Schalke could take advantage of.
Origen - Excel
Excel has been a decent team getting decent wins, but despite last week's loss of Misfits, it's hard to believe Origen would fall here. So, here Origen needs to show their superiority while Excel needs to prove their worth and that line alone should point to the winner.
Fnatic - MAD Lions
MAD Lions have been surprisingly strong in the early part of the season, but has also benefited from an easy match schedule.They’ve been playing well but not on the same level as Fnatic. Fnatic have shown that they are able to dominate and should here as well.
This week's live wins do not offer any particularly attractive options, so we are diving into the world of specials. Not all sites offer special destinations, but many do. For me, these two items particularly caught my eye:
Rogue vs Schalke 04 - First Kill: Rogue
Rogue vs Schalke 04 - First kill and match win: Rogue
Schalkes Bot Lane will be completely different from the start of the season with Forgiven stepping down so dramatically So I believe Rogue will take advantage of this and when Rogue is a clear favorite in the match, why not increase the odds by making the match win a trader.
G2 Esports 6-0
MAD Lions 4-2
Misfits Gaming 4-2
Excel Esports 3-3
SK Gaming 2-4
Schalke 04 0-6
Team Vitality 0-6
