We begin Week 8 by taking on Vitality, who are level on points with us and H2k Gaming. It is safe to say that Vitality are the hottest team in Europe right now: they come into this game on the back of six straight victories, defeating the likes of G2, H2k and Origen. They are without a doubt title-winning material, so those who bet on them at the start of the season to be the team to beat were not exactly wrong. It will require a great team effort and some amazing individual performances in lane and teamfights to beat such a strong team, but we have shown in the past that we are capable of beating the best in the league. Expect some great duels in the top lane between Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek and Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet.
After that, we will take on Giants Gaming. In theory, this is one of the easier match-ups in the league, but no one can really anticipate how Giants will perform, considering that they recently changed three players. Giants will go out to lick their wounds, but if we are able to stay calm and collected and make the most of the pick-and-ban phase then the victory should go our way.
