EU LCS Week 8: G2.Kinguin defeats Giants

After a sensational victory over Vitality on Thursday, our League of Legends team is looking to close out the week with another win, this time against Giants Gaming, at 18 CET. Follow all the action here.

After consecutive 1-1 weeks, we went into the LCS break on the back of two victories as we fended off the threats of Elements and Origen. The first match was surprisingly closer than expected, but we made up for that with a convincing team display against Origen, who would attend IEM Katowice just days later. At this stage of the league, it is all about grinding out results, and we very much continue in the race of a semi-final spot. 

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.


Will Kikis shut Cabochard down in the top lane?

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.
