SK vs. Vitality
Friday was a weird day for the LEC, but the one thing I can tell you is that SK are legit. Even though G2 inted their draft, they took advantage of it and played together as a team instead of separating.

Vitality's death per loss is 16.5, and SK aren't a bloody team, but their kill participation is really good at 72 percent, which is better than every team other than Rogue and MAD. SK should win pretty easy here.
Prediction: SK Win
SK Players to Target: Crownshot ($7,800), Trick ($6,600)
