Group A

In Group A, DAMWON KIA defeated Rogue and took the lead with two wins and zero losses. The 2019 World Champions, FunPlus Phoenix did not show confident play, but still managed to defeat Cloud9 and now share 2nd place with the team from Europe. The last place in the group is taken by Cloud9. In the first round, they were left with one match against DWG.

Group B

Edward Gaming also became the sole leaders after the second day in their group. They managed to beat T1 in a tense match and gain a foothold in the first place. The 100 Thieves were expected to be stronger than DetonatioN FocusMe and are now tied for second place with the Korean team. DFMs are in a very precarious position and one more defeat can practically deprive them of their chances to qualify from the group.

Group C

Royal Never Give Up were able to defeat the weakened Fnatic and also became the first in their group. PSG Talon managed to snatch victory from Hanwha Life Esports and are now taking second place, overtaking the Koreans in personal meetings, but the situation in the group may still change after the second round of games.
