Europe’s Finest League of Legends Teams Play on Friday in the LECPublished June 25, 2021 by Florin P
League of Legends returns to European shores, with the finest teams in the LEC taking the spotlight on Friday in the Summer Split.
The best League of Legends teams from Europe are scheduled to play on Friday evening in the LEC. G2 Esports have regained their form, while Misfits challenge them for the lead. Key matches are scheduled for Fnatic and MAD Lions who have struggled early on and need to turn their season around quickly.
Misfits Seek New Win as Favorite Over Excel
Misfits are the hottest team in the LEC and currently tied with G2 Esports for the lead. In order to maintain this position, they need to secure victory over Excel. Their opponents have the advantage in the head to head record, but are the team in weaker form. They have secured victories as favorites, but this time they start as underdogs and are priced at 8/5 by bet365 Sports, while Misfits get odds of 9/20.
Winless SK Gaming Aims for New MAD Lions Upset
MAD Lions have represented Europe at the Mid-Season Invitational after winning the Spring Split. They will try to return into the spotlight with back-to-back victories and their next victim is SK Gaming. There is a significant difference in skill between these two teams, hence the odds of 3/10 on MAD Lions. Punters willing to bet on the upset will benefit from odds of 7/2 at bet365 Sports.
Rogue Takes on Depleted Schalke on Friday
Rogue were unable to capitalize on their advantage in the previous match against G2 Esports. This is a team that can easily snowball advantages and this is what we expect them to do against Schalke. They have an obvious advantage in the head to head record and should extend these lead. Punters benefit from odds of 2/1 on Rogue to win if they bet at bet365 Sports and 2/1 on Schalke to prevail.
Fnatic and Astralis are at the Opposite End of Form
Fnatic started the season poorly, but they are back on track and have won three consecutive games. Astralis are struggling to end the three-game losing streak and they are unlikely to do it in this match. Punters will only get odds of 3/10 on the favorites if they bet at 888 Sport and 21/10 on Astralis. This match has the potential of resulting in a high-scoring affair, with Fnatic being the main aggressor.
Vitality Braces for Clash with Resurgent G2 Esports
G2 Esports is the best team in Europe and it has always been in spite of the recent struggles. They take on Vitality, which is playing its best League of Legends in years. This is a classic game where class should outshine form and the likes of Caps and Rekkles should lead their team to victory. Punters should expect odds of 3/2 on Vitality and exceptional value of 1/2 on G2 Esports to add another victory.
