Two more quarterfinalists the world hockey Championships in Slovakia, which are destined to come together among themselves, were the Czech Republic and Germany. Which of these teams deserve to win? According to the official BC, the chances of success are Czechs. But whether they surpass the Germans, who had already become a pleasant discovery for the current tournament?
The Czech Republic
Team Milos Rigi was one of the best at the preliminary stage. The Czech Republic has produced six Victoria, never bringing the matter to the overtime and penalty shootout series. This team lost to only one opponent – "red car" with the score 3:0.
Eighteen points. This is three more than the Swedes, and six more than the Swiss. Needless to remind you that "Three crowns" and "Crusaders" a year ago played in the world Cup final in Denmark? Really now, medals will reach it Czech Republic?
Silver medalist of the Olympics-2018 frankly ruined the world Cup championship in Denmark. But now "Germany" was able to really shoot. In the preliminary stage, Germany lost only to teams in Canada and the United States. Although it's not always brightly shone in the other appointments, but still managed to get five victories in regulation time. And fifteen points was enough to not only reach the playoffs but also to take third place in group A. Beating team USA.
Teams have played in official matches between them eighteen times. And only twice Germany was stronger than Czechs. So our prediction is obvious – P1. Although not the fact that the Germans are not noted in this meeting hammered washers.
