Is Garen better when played alongside Ryze?

By being on the same side as Garen, he lowers their win rate by -4.4% to 47.3%. This demonstrates that there is a terrible bond between Garen and Ryze that allows them to perform worse together than without each other.

Ryze has a greater difficulty than Garen. That means you must be careful when finding Ryze teammates to fight alongside, as they will require a greater level of skill to be able to do well with you.
