The rivalry between G2 Esports and Schalke 04 isn’t really popular but when we see the fact that Schalke 04 is the team the current reigning champions of LEC have lost to the most since last year, then that puts things in a different view. G2 Esports will have side selection in the game and will definitely look to play from the blue side since that’s where they have played 10 games this split and only lost one of them compared to their record of 5 wins from 8 games on the red side.
Unfortunately for Schalke 04, they also have a better record while playing on the blue side and a far worse record on red side as they have only won 3 out of 8 games while playing there.
The drafting phase of the game will be really interesting considering how Schalke 04 really changed up things with unconventional picks like Nocturne and Karthus in the last week of the regular season.
Prediction: G2 Esports 3-1 Schalke 04
G2 Esports will definitely be looking at their mid jungle duo to be the primary playmakers for their team in the early game and so will Schalke 04, but the difference in the quality of players will be quite visible in a best of five series, and the G2 duo is favourite to come out on top.
