NiP and Liquid advanced to the main stage of IEM Katowice 2021

The struggle in the final three matches of the first game day of Play-in IEM Katowice 2021 turned out to be very hot. An unexpected second wind from Ninjas in Pajamas, which were written off from the very first match; an incredible game from Keith 'NAF' Markovic and the entire Liquid team, and of course the meat grinder in the first losers match between Team One and Renegades.

Virtus Pro failed miserably and went into the losers' bracket. After the release of the updated HLTV rating, where the "bears" took 5th place, no one doubted their easy passage to the main stage of the championship, but the Swedish team had a different opinion on this matter.
