Professional bets and predictions
At the end of the last international season, the Swedish national team showed great hockey, however, now representatives of Russian clubs did not fall under the banner of the national team, which significantly weakened "Tre Krunur", and it is more important for Juhan Garpelev to check new players, rather than win the Karjala Cup under any circumstances
Czechs didn't go this way, invited eight representatives of the KHL at once, since it is important for Philip Peshan not only to get to know the hockey players, but also achieve a good result. Based on this, a bet on the victory of the Czech national team in the match with a coefficient of about 2,15.
The last time the national teams of Sweden and the Czech Republic had a productive face-to-face battle in the world championship match, when Milos Riha's wards defeated their opponent - 5:2. There has been a trend towards more defensive hockey in the past season., therefore, in the three previous get-togethers, only 11 taken the gate (3,67 on average per game), at the same time, more than four goals were never scored per match. Something similar should be expected in the upcoming battle., as teams need time, to play together and find connections, and they had their last fight in February. As a result, the best option for forecasting is the total less 5,5 washers with a coefficient near 1,80.
Czech national team uniform
It has long been known, that there will be major changes in the Czech national team after the 2020 world championship, since it was announced in advance, that for Milos Riha this will be the last tournament, after which he will be replaced as head coach by Philip Peshan. Alas, World Cup 2020 never took place, therefore, his last match as a mentor of the Czech squad, but as it turned out later in life, Milos spent 9 February against the Russian national team (4:3), because 1 September, the legendary coach passed away. Judging by the composition of the Karjala Cup, Philip Péchamp is not going to spoil that, which worked so well, so we see many familiar faces, what kind of hockey will they play, we will see soon.
Sweden national team uniform
In the Swedish national team, the head coach was changed a year earlier. As expected, Juhan Garpenlev spent the first time rebuilding the team, significantly rejuvenated her, therefore, the starting tournament for him turned out to be not the best in terms of results, since his players have lost all three matches in the Karjala Cup. Tre Krunur looked much better at the Channel One Cup, having won two wins in three meetings, and the home stage, the "yellow-blue" and did triumphantly, having won all three fights with a total score - 12:4. As a result, before the early end of the international season, Sweden shared the first place with the Czech Republic in the overall standings of the Euro Hockey Tour.
