The World Cup favourites are forced to play for the third city. The match will take place on 26 May in Prague at the O2 Arena.

Swedish national ice hockey team

The Three Crowns (Tre Kronor in Swedish) suffered a crushing defeat against the Czech Republic. The Scandinavians managed to open the scoring in this game, then took a 2-1 lead, but the Czechs quickly levelled the scoreboard. The key moment was the period when the Czechs scored three goals and conceded only one. In the third period, the Swedish national team failed to respond and lost 3-7.

The Swedish national ice hockey team had an effective group stage, with seven wins in seven games and a victory over Finland in the quarter-finals. Nevertheless, the Swedes will not play in the final, which is quite unexpected, as the Three Crowns were considered the favourites for the World Championship. It is noteworthy that Sweden is still the only team that has not conceded a single power play goal. The opponents had 18 chances, none of which were converted.

It’s worth noting that Sweden also showed a successful performance in other matches. In particular, this applies to the meeting against France.

Canadian national ice hockey team

“The Maple Leafs”, like Sweden, were favourites for the World Championship. After a convincing victory over Slovakia in the quarter-finals, they lost to Switzerland in the semi-finals. Canada quickly conceded two goals, but levelled the game and levelled the score. The Canadians seized the initiative, but were unable to score the winning goal. The game went to overtime and then to a shootout, where Switzerland won and Canada will now play for bronze.

Canada played very well up until the semi-finals. They did not lose a single game in their group. Team Canada also played well against the Slovak national team.

This result is quite surprising, given the strong composition of Team Canada, which combines youth and experience. Despite this, they will be left without gold and lose the world title.

Sweden vs Canada prediction

Both teams have excellent players who are capable of realising their attacking potential. A significant number of goals can be a predicted bet.
