VIT vs. XL
The first match of the day is between two of the bottom teams in the LEC, with Vitality tied for seventh and Excel sitting in ninth.

Vitality, on the other hand, gives up 17 kills when they lose, so if Excel does find a way to win this game it could be a high-scoring affair for Excel. Looking at Excel, Patrik leads the team in kills with 20 and Tore at support leads the team in kill participation at 74.5 percent making the bot lane a good target for Excel.
