As part of the final round of the group stage of the Ice Hockey World Championship, the players of the national teams of Slovakia and Denmark will compete face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Slovak national team is on the 5th line in the standings in its group. It is worth noting that the team is 3 points behind Canada and Denmark, but seriously loses to both teams on the difference of goals scored and conceded. Everything is going to the fact that the Slovaks will become 5th in the group and will not get into the playoffs even with 4 wins in the asset. Slovakia managed to win the last two matches. First, the hosts defeated Kazakhstan with a score of 4:3, after which they beat Italy (4:1).
The Danish national team performs very well at the Ice Hockey World Championship. It is worth noting that the "red-white" team was able to win 4 matches at the tournament at the moment. Already, the Danes have one foot in the playoffs of the tournament. The nominal guests are on the third line in the standings, and in the match of the last round they were able to beat Canada, almost solving an incredible task at the World Cup (3:2).
Statistics and figures:
- Slovakia is the favorite of the meeting;
- Slovaks have a 2-match winning streak;
- The Danes won 2 meetings in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting ended with a score of 2:0 in favor of the Slovaks.
Both teams will show productive hockey. I believe that the opponents will be able to break through the base total of 5.5 goals. Our bet will be on a large number of abandoned pucks.
