The second day of the IEM Summer 2021 play-offs is over. Yesterday two semifinals were played and each one was interesting in its own way. OG played a solid game against Vitality, although they lost one map to the French. In the team mantuu performs his role very well, in this semi-final he was excellent. Vitality tried to take control of the game, but still lost and left the tournament, taking 3-4th place. Gambit continue to surprise in every game so far, winning the semi-final against G2 is no exception. What's surprising is how well the guys from CIS have prepared Ancient, which they haven't played before. G2 have shown an absolutely no-nonsense game, which is why they occupy 3-4th place in this tournament.
Best moments of the second day of the IEM Summer 2021 play-offs
G2 vs Gambit
A good performance on the economic round was shown by nexa, who dealt with the CIS guys without too much trouble. First, three opponents were defeated with MP9s, and against the last two, USP-S was used.
Although Ax1le is not a full-time sniper, that didn't stop him from stopping G2's exit in plant B. A great reception from a young Gambit player, gave the team victory on the Vertigo map.
OG vs Vitality
misutaaa did all he had to do to give his team the win at Mirage. Good play from the Frenchman in a 1vs3 situation and an exit to the third map for Vitality. Unfortunately, the French team lost this match.
