League of Legends European Championship Week Six Matches
The League of Legends European Championship resumes on Friday and the sixth weekend schedules the most balanced matches so far. Arguably the most exciting games take place on Friday evening, when the top teams play against each other. All the favorites were defeated last Saturday and they will be hungry for points, in their quest to consolidate their position at the top of the tables.

G2 Esports and Schalke 04 Play the Weekend Derby
The most anticipated match of the weekend and so far, the most important match of the season, pits G2 against Schalke. G2 are credited with the first chance by ArcaneBet and odds of only 2/5, which doesn’t represent too much value under these circumstances. This promises to be a highly contested match and odds of 2/1 offered on the team sitting in the second place are definitely worth considering.
In the second match of the day, excel eSports take on Rogue in a match between the last two teams in the League of Legends European Championship. excel eSports have two victories this season, as opposed to a single one for Rogue, which explains their status as narrow favorites. Punters who choose to bet on them will enjoy odds of 3/4 at Rivalry, while Rogue are given even odds to win their second match this season.
Team Vitality and Splyce Aim for Second Place
Team Vitality could take advantage of the fact that the top two teams play in the opening match and claim solitary second place. In order to do that, they would have to defeat Splyce, which sit one place behind them and are in excellent form. Team Vitality have a solid head to head record against this opponent, so even though the odds offered by Pinnacle only stand at 11/20, so they are worth considering.
Misfits and SK Gaming are separated by a single victory, but the former are in freefall, while their opponents are surging. Misfits have lost the last four matches, while SK Gaming are riding a hot three game winning streak, which includes victories against top opponents. In this context, it’s a bit surprising that Misfits are favourites at odds of 3/5 with GG.bet, while SK Gaming are priced at 13/10. There’s definitely more value in backing the underdogs than taking a leap of faith with a fading team.
Finally, Friday League of Legends European Championship matches conclude with the highly anticipated game between Origen and Fnatic. Origen have accomplished what looked like the impossible last week, by handing G2 Esports their first defeat of this year. Now they try to claim one more win against another high profile European LoL team, as they take on Fnatic. The odds of 1/2 offered by Esportsbetting are justified by Fnatic’s total lack of form and consistency, with the underdogs being priced at 3/2.
