The French got off to a good start in the opening duel of the IEM Summer 2021, while Complexity suffered another clear defeat.
12:00 CET Gambit vs. Sprout - 16:6

13:00 CET Astralis vs. FPX - 7:16
This duel between Astralis and FPX marked Ancient's debut on the big stage. However, the Danes were soon to regret the map veto.
13:00 CET Extra Salt vs. G2 - 1:16
A bitter defeat for a clearly outclassed Extra Salt.
14:00 CET Heroic vs. Imperial - 16:8
The second Danish top team also chose Ancient, but unlike Astralis, they were able to win clearly. On the Imperial side, SHOOWTiME in particular surprised with an incredible performance.
14:00 CET Evil Geniuses vs. Spirit - 16:9
A quite surprising success on the part of Evil Geniuses and the first victory since the new signing of MICHU.
15:00 CET fnatic vs. Virtus.Pro - 10:16
Even though the Swedes started a small comeback towards the end, the performance was again disappointing all in all.

A quite surprisingly clear defeat on the part of NiP. The runner-up in Flashpoint 3 was clearly defeated on Mirage.
16:45 CET Vitality vs. Gambit - 2:0
The first bo3 duel of the tournament was probably the biggest surprise of the event. Vitality, which didn't really manage to find their form in the last weeks, defeated Gambit clearly, especially on the second map.
