As part of the match for the 3rd place of the World Hockey Championship, the players of the Czech Republic and the USA will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? LiveResult.Ru gives a forecast for this match.
The Czech national football team was able to reach the playoffs of the World Hockey Championship, having won 4 victories in the group stage of the tournament. It is worth noting that at the stage of the 1/4 finals, the team got the German national team as rivals. "Tricolor" managed to confidently beat their opponent with a score of 4:1, which gave them a ticket to the semifinals. It is worth noting that in the 1/2 finals, the Czech Republic lost to Canada in full, conceding 6 goals from the opponent, and answering the opponent with only 1 goal. In the match with the USA, the Czechs are listed as the favorites of the confrontation.
The American national team, it is worth noting, lost only 2 matches in the group stage, but many matches were won by the "stars and stripes" either in a shootout or in overtime. In the playoffs, the USA got to Switzerland, from which they did not leave a wet spot (3:0). The grid led the Americans in the semifinals to the hosts of the tournament – the Finns, to whom the USA lost with a score of 3:4, having a chance to even the score on the scoreboard before the final siren.
Statistics and figures:
- The Czech Republic is a small favorite of the meeting;
- "Tricolor" have 3 wins in 5 matches;
- The USA won 3 matches out of the previous 5;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 1-0 in favor of the Czech national team.
Although the Americans lost in the group stage to the Czech Republic, they looked very solid during the tournament. What is the semifinal game against Finland worth, where there was a struggle until the last minute, unlike the Czechs' game against the Canadians, where everything was clear from the first minute of the game. I assume that the USA will take revenge on the opponent and win.
