Kassadin normally has a much larger longest killing spree than his opponent does. Typically, Kassadin takes more damage than Zyra. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also indicate that the champion with more health has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Kassadin usually racks up much more CS than Zyra. Champions that do not earn much CS typically don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale easily off their abilities alone. However, champs with plenty of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, usually require a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, try to best the values displayed here to do well.
