Basically in eukaryotic reproduction cycle , the asexual reproduction involves mitosis only while the sexual reproduction involves meiosis and syngamy. Both of these processes are the counterparts of each other that's why both of them are required in the sexual reproduction. Meiosis and Syngamy, together make the reproduction process a "cycle|.

In the meiosis phase, the cells are gone through the cell division and get haploid number of chromosomes. The process of reproduction is completed when the two gametes are fused in the syngamy phase. In this way both of these processes are must in the completion of the reproduction cycle.
