LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 4 Preview
The LEC Summer Split enters it's fourth week this weekend and we have a few thoughts on this one. Esports Vikings have compiled this ...
By the end of the sixth week, the league should be over the halfway point and some of the standings should be shaken up. The tail-end trio play against top teams and begin to be in a position where they need to win over top teams to have a chancec at the playoffs. Currently, seven teams are at points close to each other and three teams are further away. These three teams desperately need wins this week. Not the most exciting week to be had, as half of the matches will take place between the tail three and the top four. For more information on the league and its teams, see our tournament page!
There are two really strong teams facing each other here, only one will remain at the top of the league at the end of the match. Both of them made good passes last week and have earned a place at the top. That is what makes this struggle particularly interesting.
A particularly interesting aspect of the match is the Battle of Mid Lane. There are probably two of the strongest and most steady players in their role this spring. Both are able to play for their team but also carry the team in the backpack. The encounter between Dan Dan and Bwipo is also interesting and probably bloody. Of course, with these Solo lanes, junglers play a big role, and so Selfmade gets to do a full day's work to keep up with the high-spirited Razork.
The teams are very close to each other in terms of their performance, but I have a feeling that Fnatic's experience will be a great asset in this match and will bring victory to the legendary club.
A very important match. Excel is currently one win below the drop line and just above Rogue. Rogue has played hard but has occasionally lost matches to poor choices as the game progressed. Excel's game has again been a coin toss in the early stages of the game, but its tactical know-how has made it a victory in the games where it has advanced. Even though it would be great for the series to excel if Excel wins, my bet is that Rogue will win this match. It puts Excel in a challenging situation for the rest of the season.
Although Team Vitality has improved its game since the return of Steeelback, its tone is far from that of MAD Lions. This match is a very clear win for MAD Lions and probably a quick one.
You could copy the previous match's advance and change only the names. Schalke has been like a different team in recent weeks, but Origen is rightly in the lead. If Schalke manages to surprise Origen in the same way as it surprised G2, so I'm really surprised. Origen wins are not always fast, but I would certainly not put my money in this match against its winnings.
Third match on the same day where the top team meets the three worst teams. G2 Esports has played with some very thrilling results, but I can't believe it will be a loss to SK Gaming, which in recent weeks has looked like the weakest team in the league.
SK Gaming is having a tough week as another match against the top team is coming. Misfits can easily handle this and concentrate on next week's matches.
Excel has a very important week, as it plays against both teams that are its biggest opponents in the final playoff spots. The MAD Lions have looked really strong in the first half as Excel extracts have thrown more. On a good day, Excel can challenge MAD Lions, but if it's not the best day, MAD Lions is clearly a favorite.
Fnatic played really well last week, but whenever a team that innovates can play so little scares. Schalke has been strong since the changes, but Fnatic has been stronger. However, here is the small chance of a surprise this week and with a good odds and a reasonable risk you can pick it up there.
This match was a strong candidate for the match of the week, as Rogue needs a win to keep the gap low. Origen, however, has played better than average and will go on to play the match as a clear advance favorite. Rogue has had challenges while playing against three big players (G2, Fnatic, Origen) and is expected to play the same in this match.
A clear G2 favorite match where they should get their confidence back to the level they need for the top team.
