Yasuo normally has a slightly larger longest kill spree than his foe does. Typically, Yasuo takes less damage than Zac. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to flee from further harm when engaged or poked.

Yasuo commonly earns much more CS than Zac. Champs who on average do not amass very much CS usually do not have to have much CS to be effective.
