How does Supa Hot Crew stack up against Fnatic?

There was only one team that managed to emerge from last week's League of Legends Championship Series without a loss—Fnatic

There was only one team that managed to emerge from last week's League of Legends Championship Series without a loss—Fnatic.

Three games behind first place Alliance, and with ten games left to play in the season, Fnatic are playing catchup in an attempt to claim yet another first place finish. But to get there, they'll have to get through the Supa Hot Crew, a young team that is finally beginning to click. The Crew's dismal spring season is behind them, and they're playing better than ever. What's more, they're just a game behind Fnatic, and could very well end up challenging them for a playoff bye. The stage is perfectly set for a titanic matchup between two powerhouses. Here are the stats.

The team comparison tells a depressing tale for Supa Hot Crew fans. Fnatic have a substantially better KDA and gold rate throughout the season, along with an impressive 80 percent win rate when they play on the Red side of the map. In fact, the only thing on the Crew's side is match history—so far, Supa Hot Crew is 2-0 against Fnatic. And the last team to beat Fnatic, before they started on this winning streak? Supa Hot Crew. 

The main reason for the Crew's success is the impressive growth of mid laner Marcin "SELFIE" Wolski. His CS compared to lane opponents is starting to get really scary, and he'll definitely be a target for Fnatic. Fortunately for Fnatic, however, is the deadly efficiency of mid laner Enrique "xPeke" Cedeño Martínez and marksman Martin "Rekkles" Larsson. Both players are starting to break away from the rest of the players in their positions, and will be instrumental in finding victory. 

The scariest stat is without a doubt Larsson's KDA, which at 9.05 almost doubles that of his opponent, the Crew's star marksman Rasmus "MrRalleZ" Skinneholm. Larsson has been getting better each and every week, and with that kind of performance, it'll take a miracle if the Supa Hot Crew want to score a win against Fnatic.
