The Maple Leafs are considered one of the main favorites for the World Cup. They finished first in Group A, winning all seven matches. André Tourigny’s team played especially well in attack, scoring 32 goals. Although he was not without difficulties.

The first game of the group stage against Great Britain (4-2) forced the Canadians to play catch-up and recover after conceding a goal in the first half. In the match against Austria (7-6 extra time), the Tourigny team led with a score of 6-1, but in the last period of the match they lost all their advantage, allowing the weak rival to establish a 6-6 tie.

In the match against Finland, the “maple leaves” won a resounding 5:3 victory. The Canadians beat the Swiss (3-2) thanks to three goals scored in the majority. The Canadian team played the last match of the group stage against the host of the tournament, the Czech Republic. Two periods were inconclusive and in the third a real thriller unfolded. The teams scored six goals in 18 minutes and ended regulation time in a 3:3 tie. In overtime, Dylan Cozens scored a short-handed goal.

The Buffalo forward is having a great World Cup. He is one of the top five scorers with eight goals and two assists. John Tavares isn’t bad either. The Toronto forward scored 8 (1+7) points through the goal+pass system. The Canadians have a very strong roster of hockey players who play in NHL clubs. Connor Bedard also brings a lot of value.

The Slovak national team also has enough players representing the NHL, but until the last match it could not be sure of reaching the playoffs. The team scored 12 points and was three points ahead of Latvia. At the same time, the Burgundians won the confrontation and took the advantage. But Craig Ramsey’s players were lucky. The Latvians lost the last game against the United States (3-6) and lost the opportunity to reach the playoffs.

In fairness, it is worth noting that the only decent victory at the 2024 World Cup for the Slovaks was achieved in the match against the Americans (5:4 overtime). The “Tatra Knights” lost to the other leaders: Germany (4-6) and Sweden (1-6). Despite this, the Slovak team certainly deserved to reach the quarterfinals, but, it seems, their path will be interrupted very soon.

Canadians and Slovaks meet for the third consecutive World Cup. In the last two direct confrontations, the Maple Leaves won 5-1 and 2-1 B. Due to some instability in the defense, Craig Ramsey’s charges will probably have the opportunity to score one or two goals, but this will not affect the result. Team Canada is the clear favorite.

André Tourigny’s team has a strong squad, at the right moment it is capable of pushing the pace to the limit and, when necessary, it will reduce the pace and be able to gain time. The Slovaks have a good roster, but in comparison to the Maple Leaf hockey players it pales. Therefore, we offer a bet on Canada to win and the total to exceed 4.5 goals for 1.70.

Prediction and bets for the match Canada – Slovakia May 23, 2024

The Maple Leafs won all seven games. Sometimes it scared them. Sometimes the Canadians lost first, sometimes they won decisive victories, and in the match against Austria they lost a big lead on the scoreboard. Each time they increased the pace and still won. Slovakia did not impress at all during the group stage. It is unlikely that he will be able to surprise, but he will surely take advantage of the mistakes of the Canadian defense and score a couple of goals.

Tender: Canada wins and the total exceeds 4.5 goals by 1.70.
