The two German eSports teams from RB Leipzig and FC Schalke 04 survived the group stage of the FIFAe Club World Cup 2021 (FeCWC) on Wednesday and Thursday. However, their starting positions before the next round are rather modest.
The fourth place after the group stage of the FIFAe Club World Cup did not jump out for the German clubs. It was enough for the quarter-finals, but FC Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig did not make much hope with a view to the next round. More was to be expected from the "Red Bulls" in particular. Umut 'RBLZ_UMUT' Gültekin and Richard 'RBLZ_GAUCHO' Hormes, however, played too often a draw in their first encounters and dropped a corresponding number of points. That took revenge, because the Saxons fell from first to fourth place in Group B due to only one catch-up game, which was only played on Friday morning due to connection problems.

RB Leipzig's opponent is AC Monza. The Italian second division team doesn't look that strong on paper, but dominated Group A on Thursday. 'Er_Caccia98' and 'Nzorello' only lost one game together and seem to be in top form, but Leipzig is an ungrateful opponent for them: The quality of 'RBLZ_UMUT' and 'RBLZ_GAUCHO' is undisputed, the fourth place shouldn't have put a damper on self-confidence either. Both players emphasized in the course of the group stage that they didn't really care who they were playing against in the quarter-finals. One must and can defeat everyone on the way to the title.
In the other two quarter-finals of the FeCWC, Astralis will face FC Genoa, Mkers will face Zeta Gaming. The German Ditmir Alimi plays for the latter team. With a heroic 2-1 win in the last game against number five in Europe, 'NEissaT14', he prevented the tournament and ensured his team's progress.
