Home I Latest News I EU LCS: Fnatic vs G2 ESports
Only one more round is left until the end of the EU LCS and all participants of the summer split season are already well known.
The dust has settled in Group A, where changes to the table will not come as a result of the last round. Finishing second or third in the group, however, can make a considerable difference in the final stages. That is why teams are now playing at the highest level. With another round until the end, the starting positions for the playoffs are yet to be determined.
ROCCAT is a mess. The team never recovered after losing its shot caller Nubar “Maxlore” Safarian and their macro game is all over the place. It’s sometimes hard to notice since ROCCAT routinely gets smashed in the laning phase.
Things haven’t been great for ROCCAT’s Ambrož “Phaxi” Hren. With a 1.6 KDA and 7.9 CS per minute, he has become the punching bag of every top laner. He has been desperately trying—and failing—to adapt to the new meta.
In the jungle, it’s a tough time to be Milo “Pridestalker” Wehnes. With the meta moving away from his favorite carries, ROCCAT’s rookie jungler finds himself at a loss. His 2.5 KDA and 4.6 CS per minute are a reflection of his lackluster presence in the early game.
Felix “Betsy” Edling was once the main carry of his team, but those times have long gone. Now, ROCCAT’s mid laner is barely staying afloat with a 2.3 KDA and 8.9 CS per minute to his name.
ROCCAT’s bot lane is actually not too shabby. With a 2.5 KDA and 9.4 CS per minute, Petter “Hjärnan” Freyschuss is a gifted team fighting AD carry. His laning phase is bolstered by the playmaking of his support, Kim “Wadid” Bae-in (2.5 KDA).
From time to time, Team Misfits has proven to be a devastating opponent for the side of ROCCAT. Although Misfits lost to the strong side of Fnatic and G2 Esports, they also won against NiP, a team which defeated ROCCAT. It is quite justifiable to say that NiP is not doing well in the group stages. However, ROCCAT lost the series to them.
Misfits will be an early nightmare for ROCCAT as they are themselves struggling in the LoL competitive scene.
There’s no hope for Team ROCCAT. This a classic David versus Goliath scenario. Even though ROCCAT managed to pull through in similar spots in the past, this one is just too far out of their reach.
Our prediction: a confident 2-0 for Misfits
10bet Odds: Misfits 1.42 – 2.70 ROCCAT

The situation in group A is almost solved. The only teams that can change their current position in the table are Fnatic and G2. Both teams have two more games coming up until the end of the group phase.
There are so many differences in the winnings between the two teams. Fnatic has a better gamer difference of +17, while G2 has a +10. The only way G2 could finish first is if there are two Fnatic defeats with a score of 2-0. While G2 will have both their matches with the same 2-0.
Fnatic’s last match will be against G2 Esports. They just need one victory in the series against G2 to secure first place. Both the teams are the top contenders in Group A.
Fnatic is cruising through every team but now their patience will be tested. G2 won’t be an easy opponent. They are the number two team in the group for a reason. However, it might not be enough to end the winning spree of Fnatic as they are indeed an unstoppable force right now.
If you missed the beginning of the Summer Split, you might be inclined to think that nothing changed for G2. The team seems as dominant as ever. But this time, that dominance came at the cost of many losses and shaky performances. However in the end G2 came out of the whole ordeal stronger. The team is once again ready to climb to the top of the EU LCS.
G2 2-0 defeated their competitor for the second place in Group A, Misfits, and thus retained second place on the table.
The series will be amazing to watch. The top team will be up against the second favorite team in Group A. A single win will be crucial for Fnatic. However, if G2 makes it out to grab the series 2-0, they could make to the top of the table.
Our prediction: Fnatic 2 – 1 G2 Esports
Betsafe Odds: Fnatic 1.64 – 2.10 G2 Esports
The EU LCS fans will have the opportunity to watch some interesting matches and uncertain fights for a better position in the playoff.
