Sona typically has a slightly larger longest killing spree than her counter does. On average, Sona takes a similar amount of damage to Lulu. This often reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from further harm when poked or engaged.

Sona typically gets a similar amount of CS than Lulu. Champions that don't finish with much CS usually don't have to have much CS to be useful. They are able to scale properly off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with tons of CS, such as hyper-carries, usually have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to outperform the averages shown here to do well.
