2019 LEC Semifinal Predictions: Fnatic vs Schalke 04
Fnatic got knocked down by G2 Esports, but they’re still not out of the playoffs race! This team was downright oppressive in the early game, as Bwipo and Broxah used every chance they could get to go on the offensive. The never-ending roams from Hylissang add another dimension to this playstyle, and Fnatic always seem to have the numbers advantage in ganks and river skirmishes. Combine that with Rekkles and Nemesis ramping up their aggression, and this team has a lot of ways to take over the LEC Semifinal.
The same can’t be said about its opponents. Schalke 04 are very good about playing around Upset in the bot lane, but this style needs time to come into full force. Meanwhile, their solo laners will have a lot of trouble in the Fnatic vs Schalke 04 series, as both Odoamne and Abbedagge tend to be hit-or-miss in the early game. Granted, they can cover these weaknesses by working together with their jungler. But considering Trick isn’t the most mechanically proficient player either, things aren’t looking well for Schalke coming into this matchup.
BETTING ADVICE: You can bet on Fnatic winning the Fnatic vs Schalke 04 series with a 3-0 score for esports odds of 2.71 at ArcaneBet.
