IEM Gamescom day two recap
Day two of IEM Gamescom has come to an end, with EnVyUs continuing their perfect start to the tournament.
After an exciting opening day that saw EnVyUs and SK Gaming hold on to their lives, day two kicked off with a mouth-watering clash between Team SoloMid and CLG on de_train.
The North American team came into the match determined to bounce back from their defeat in the opening match and secured a 10-5 lead after playing on the CT side. However, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's men picked themselves up and overcame the deficit to secure their second win in Cologne.
The following match also featured a Danish team, this time SK, who fell short against Renegades on de_cache, this way giving the former Vox Eminor side their first win at the event.
SK and Renegades would face each other two times again before the end of the day, with one victory going each side. The Danes' 19-16 triumph came as a blow to the Australian side, who have no margin for error left.
EnVyUs entered their match against CLG looking to extend their winning run in the tournament after picking up two wins during the first day. The North American team gave Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's a run for their money, but in the end the Frenchmen ran out 16-13 victors to leave CLG on the brink of elimination.
mousesports had given strong showings against Renegades and EnVyUs, but they were simply outplayed by TSM on de_dust2, which shows that Fatih "gob b" Dayik's side still have some work to do to become more consistent.
After two days, all six teams are still in contention, even though Renegades and CLG have only one life each. Below you can still how each team has fared so far:
