The 2021 LEC Summer Split will begin on June 11 with 10 teams competing to take home the trophy and punch a ticket to Worlds 2021. The 2021 LEC Spring Split saw MAD Lions come out on top, leaving former champion G2 Esports in the dust. 

The upcoming event gives the defending champions and other teams a few weeks to prepare, but it’s still a good time to look ahead and consider what might happen in the playoffs. If you’re looking to make good returns on betting sites, our predictions may help you pick the right team to roll with. 

All You need to know about the 2021 LEC Summer Split

The 2021 LEC Summer Split will see 10 teams battle it out. The competition will run for nine weeks of round-robin play and will conclude with the top six teams qualifying for the playoffs. As always, winning the LEC Summer Split is important as the winner will qualify for the 2021 World Championship. 

Which teams are playing in the 2021 LEC Summer Split? 

The LEC has 10 franchised teams that compete in each split. The lineup is the same as the one seen earlier this year. 

The 2021 LEC Summer Split contenders are:

  • MAD Lions
  • G2 Esports
  • Rogue
  • Fnatic
  • Schalke 04
  • Excel Esports
  • SK Gaming
  • Vitality
  • Astralis
  • Misfits Gaming

Team predictions 

The LEC has long been a two-horse race between G2 Esports and Fnatic, but MAD Lions nixed that when it won the 2021 LEC Spring Split. Rogue has also established itself as a serious contender with its performance in the spring. These four teams are the top contenders to look at in the LEC this summer. 

  • G2 Esports

G2 Esport is always the first team to talk about when it comes to LEC success. The team won five championships in a row before MAD Lions broke that streak. It is possible that G2 will make a comeback here.

  • Fnatic

Fnatic is one of the top dogs of the competition with several wins to its name. However, the team has had its fair share of bad luck in recent years. It didn’t place in the top four in the 2021 Spring Split and has been on the bad end of its rivalry with G2. 

  • MAD Lions

The defending champions of the 2021 Spring Split will have to keep their heads up if they want to keep the trophy. Most winners of the Spring Split have retained their titles except in the 2014 Summer Split when Alliance knocked out Fnatic to claim the top spot. If anyone is superstitious, this should make them feel even more confident about MAD Lions.

  • Rogue

Rogue took the competition by surprise when it came all the way from the bottom to claim the second-place spot in the 2021 LEC Spring Split. Considering it had to cross over the former champions as well as other top contenders, the team might be able to pull off the win this time around.
