There was a lot on the line for both League of Legends teams when the G2 and Fnatic rivalries unfolded for the first time in 2021. During the offseason, the rivalry was even more intense as G2 picked up the bot laner Martin “Rekkles” Larsson. 

This put Fnatic in a difficult spot ahead of the 2021 season, but left them hungry to get back to the top spot in Europe. Against all odds, Team Fnatic and his aggressive style of play were enough to take down G2 Esports.

As anticipated, the match was aggressive, killing all over the map. There was no breathing room for either team, providing viewers with a very interesting match. League of Legends Fans are used to seeing G2 be very aggressive and thrive in chaos, but this time it was Fnatic who led the charge.

With early kills in both the solo lanes and the jungle, Fnatic had a solid gold lead in 15 minutes. G2 managed to keep up with its own aggression, but it was never enough to throw off Fnatic.

With almost one kill every minute, the jungler Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek and the top laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau dominated the map and built Taliyah and Volibear, respectively. The duo kept on brawling and forcing fights all over the map, and G2 Esports jumped right in to meet them. At 25 minutes, Fnatic was over 7,000 gold ahead with the Baron and Inhibitor advantage. While G2 is known for making crazy comebacks, Fnatic didn’t give them a chance.

After 28 minutes, the revamped Fnatic squad finally took down G2’s Nexus and showed that the team can still play at a high level without Rekkles.
