Astralis managed only one win in their last four outings; however, they had to face four of the top-five teams in the league in G2 Esports, Fnatic, Rogue, and Misfits Gaming, who they beat during LEC 2021 Summer Week 5. MAD Lions are 3-1 in their last four, which looks good on paper; however, their opponents were Schalke 04, SK Gaming, Excel Esports, and Team Vitality – the bottom four teams in the LEC.
Form-wise, MAD Lions are in a better spot than Astralis, and you could argue that they field better players, but the gap between these two teams is not nearly as high as the latest LoL betting odds would suggest. Astralis have done well against top teams before, and even in their losses, they’ve managed to keep the score tight. Astralis might have lost most of their games on the season, but they’re a very resilient squad, so they the potential to win the match.
