Sona normally has a significant smaller longest killing spree than her enemy does. Typically, Sona receives a similar amount of damage to Viktor. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also hint that the champ with more HP has less agility and thus is unable to escape further damage when poked or engaged.

In Sona vs Viktor matchups, Sona usually tallies many fewer minion kills than Viktor. Champs that do not finish with a lot of minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale fully off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with plenty of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically require a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, try to exceed the values displayed here to do well.
