Fnatic enhanced their chances of securing the 2020 League of Legends World Championship after a win over Gen.G moved them to the top of Group C on Tuesday.
Korea’s Gen.G were the favourites to claim victory on Tuesday but Fnatic had other ideas, producing a dominant performance to put their previously undefeated opponents to the sword.
However, Fnatic will have to maintain their high standard of play, with a strong Group C also containing LGD Gaming and Team SoloMid.
They started on the front foot against Gen.G, clinching first and second blood as Kim “Life” Jeong-min failed to carry his side back into the contest.
Gen.G briefly threatened to claw their way back into the contest in the mid-game and latter phase of the clash, but Fnatic’s strong start meant they were too far ahead to be reeled back in.
The result sees Fnatic move to the top of Group C, ahead of Gen.G due to a favourable head-to-head record.
Next up for the European team is a triple-header on Saturday, starting with a clash against TSM, followed by games against LCD Gaming and Gen. G.
