Vitality shocked the LEC audience by ending Fnatic’s hot streak with a decisive victory.

League of Legends community saw the unexpected happen as Vitality defeated Fnatics with a stunning display of team effort. Undoubtedly, Vitality brought their A-game to the League of Legends LEC Spring 2021.

Before the match started, most fans and analysts expected the in-form Fnatics to run riots over the "last boy" Vitality. The perennial champions of Europe dominantly took down G2, XL, SK, and Astralis at a stretch. Fans expected Fnatic to continue their winning streak in the LEC Week 5 as well.

But to everyone's surprise, Vitality rose from the ashes to dominate Fnatic at every stage of the game. Mathias "Szygenda" Jensen was the best player of the match as he did not allow Fnatic's star player Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau to stand a chance in the top lane.
