G2 Esports bot laner Victor "Flakked" Lirola believes his side could go on and win the LEC Spring Split 2022 if they get past highly rated Fnatic in their first playoff match.
In the LEC Spring Playoffs, Fnatic are 4/9 to beat G2 Esports, who can be backed at 13/8 to prevail.
Considered one of the best in his position in the LEC, "Flakked" has been part of the G2 Esports roster since December last year and has played a key role in the team reaching the playoffs in the Spring Split.
In the regular-season standings, G2 placed fourth with an 11-7 record, beating the likes of Excel Esports and Team Vitality to the final playoff semi-final berth.

But as they finished fourth, they must now face high-flying Fnatic, who finished second in the standings with a 13-5 record, for a place in the winners' final.
Should they lose, G2 will drop into the losers' bracket in which they would likely face either of Excel or Vitality, who start in the losers' bracket round one as a result of their place in the standings.
But "Flakked" insists just because their opponents are highly rated, they will not approach the contest any differently and will look instead to focus on their own performance.
And if they overcome Fnatic, "Flakked" believes there is nothing stopping G2 from going all the way in the LEC Spring Split.
Speaking about the upcoming playoffs, "Flakked" said: "We're not going to practise differently just because it's Fnatic - we know their playstyle, we know their players, we can know everything about them.
"I think if we beat Fnatic, in a solid and consistent way, we might win LEC.
"Because I think right now, they're like one of the best teams, if not the best."
