At the last Olympic Games, the Russian team won gold for the first time, so that they will be the champions in Beijing. Last year the Red Machine went to the World Championships, where they didn't perform at their best. The Russians performed brilliantly in the group. They got first place, two points behind the other team. However, the team's journey was cut short in the quarterfinals, where they underestimated the Canadians and lost in overtime by a score of 1:2.
After winning the World Cup in 2018, the Swiss team is not particularly proud of their performance. Indeed, the group performed very well at the 2021 World Cup but failed to progress beyond the quarterfinals. It was a disappointing exclusion from the tournament, losing to Germany in a penalty shot (2:2, 1:2 in a penalty shot). After that, the national team participated in the Swiss international tournament, where they took first place against Slovakia, Latvia and Norway.
Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers have excluded the options of a Swiss victory. However, we doubt that Russia will crush their opponent, as it is the first match at the Olympics, and it is not yet clear how the game has changed since the last World Cup. We think the Red Machine will win a tough match. Prediction: Russia will win + Both Teams To Score.
