Ice Hockey World Championship quarter finals: USA vs Slovakia. Who will get the best out of it? Will the Americans take the revenge for 2019? Previous clashes, predictions and where to watch the livestream.
Almost 2 years after their last match between them (10/05/2019) which saw surprisingly Slovakia running riots 4-1 against the USA it is now time to meet again. Again, for the World Championship but now in a more interesting phase, the quarter-finals (the last duel was in the group stage). USA has been in great form closing in top of group B with 18 points and 6 consecutive wins meanwhile Slovakia qualified 4th in group A with 12 points and not a very good recent form (3 losses in the last 5 matches). Despite that, it is not going to be an easy task for either of the teams to reach the semi-finals and we will have to wait and see what are these teams going to produce at the arena.
There are numerous battles between the sides with both teams getting massive wins but seeing the 10 last matches from 08/11/2013 to 10/05/2019 we have 6 wins for the USA and 4 wins for Slovakia. This means what a tight match is going to be this one too.
Unfortunately, both teams will have unavailable players for this match. For USA we have Abdelkader and Stolarz and for Slovakia Skalicky. Huge blow for the teams in this important phase of the tournament.
