Rainbow Six Siege's EU League 2021 just concluded its first playday and the results are here. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the matches have been held online. Teams clashed and showed some exciting matches to watch this week.

The first match was between Natus Vincere and TrainHard eSport, and it was on the newly reworked map, Chalet. Na'Vi showed how ready they are for this map as they dominated TrainHard with a 7-2 scoreline. Jack "Doki" Robertson carried Na'Vi with 13 kills.

Virtus.pro faced Team Empire on Kafe Dostoyevsky, and this game was important as both Russian teams fought for glory. Both teams were neck to neck in terms of score and managed to get the game till overtime. However, in the final round Empire got a bit greedy and peeked into V.P, which cost them the game. V.P won the game with an 8-6 scoreline.

Of four matches, the most anticipated was between Team BDS and Team Vitality. Vitality banned Hibana on Clubhouse, which is smart considering Stéphane "Shaiiko'' Lebleu plays incredibly with Hibana. The ban forced Shaiiko more into a support role rather than his usual fragger role, but this didn’t stop BDS from winning rounds on the attack. Shaiiko got a quad kill in the final round, allowing BDS to win the map with a 7-5 scoreline.

Another impressive match to watch was between G2 Esports and Team Secret. Team Secret had a roster change and that meant G2 had the upper hand in coordination and experience. G2 was able to win a few rounds on the attack through super aggressive plays, yet Secret’s unpredictable playstyle gave them the upper hand later on. Secret won the match with a 7-5 scoreline, though on the side of G2, Ben "CTZN" McMillan and Juhani "Kantoraketti" Toivonen tried their best to carry the team with respective 15 and 11 kills.
