Venue: Olympic Centre, Riga.
This encounter will be quite interesting attacking hockey. Both have shown that they’re good offensively. So let’s make a bet that at least five goals will be scored in this game. The Russian team has problems playing defensively, so there is a feeling that the Swiss will not find it too difficult to break down the Russians’ defence.
The Russian team has great offensive potential, led by excellent forwards. Shalunov is here, Slepyshev is here, Grigorenko is here. We’d also mention defensemen Ivan Provorov and Artem Zub, who can connect on the attack and help put the pucks away.
Another bet we’d like to make is that the Swiss team will score at least three goals against Russia. The Swiss have shown that the team is well prepared and already plays good, high-quality ice hockey. The Swiss have a balanced offensive and defensive line. That’s why we think that the Swiss can score at least 3 goals.
One more interesting option. We suggest betting on Mikhail Grigorenko’s goal. In games like these, the team’s leaders have to show themselves.
The main bet is Switzerland’s Individual Total Over (2.5) for 2.14.
