Analysis and forecast for the game of the Ice Hockey World Cup 2023 USA – Czech Republic (05.25.2023)
The Ice Hockey World Championship is in full swing. The playoffs begin. All four quarterfinal matches are scheduled for May 25. In one of them, the United States and the Czech Republic will meet at the Nokia Arena in Tampere. The starting whistle will sound at 16:20 Moscow time.
But the European competitions are so close:
Osasuna – Athletic. Valverde will be left with nothing
After beating Sweden in the last round (4:3 OT), the USA became the winner of pool A. The team achieved a historic achievement. For the first time since the group stage division and playoffs in 1992, the Americans did not lose a single game in the group stage of the World Cup. In seven days he scored 34 goals, while they themselves conceded only eight.
Summanen believes that Canada has taken the weakest team to the World Cup in 20 years.
David Quinn’s men are in excellent shape for the game against the Czech Republic. The most important thing for them was to beat Sweden. It was a playoff level game. Tre Krunur has a strong and experienced team, a very reliable defense and also has character. It would seem that they have everything they need to stop the Americans. However, this was not enough.
Unfortunately, it was not without conflicting court decisions. For example, at the end of the match, US striker Conor Garland knocked out Swedish national team player Lucas Raymond’s tooth with a club. Initially, he was sacked for a violation, but after video review, the referees changed their minds and did not fine the American.
Revenge for the last World Cup will not work:
Canada – Finland. Remake of the 2022 World Cup final
Overall though, the US beat the Swedes on the case. They had the initiative more often and connected almost twice as many shots on goal. Once again, an excellent performance was given by one of the leaders of the US team, TJ Tynan. In the last five games, he has never left the ice without scoring action. During this time period, he had nine assists and also scored a puck.
“Amur” has signed a contract with the ex-captain of “Spartak” Nikontsev.
Will the Czech Republic succeed in knocking those Americans out of the 2023 World Cup? In the group stage of the tournament, he could only beat a number of outsiders who failed to get a ticket to the playoffs: Slovakia (3: 2), Kazakhstan (5: 1), Slovenia (6: 2) and Norway (2 :0).
In extra time, Kari Jalonen’s charges lost to one of the hosts of the 2023 World Cup: Latvia (3:4 OT). According to the results of the 60 minutes, they lost first to Switzerland (2:4) and then to Canada (1:3). The losses are mainly due to the fact that the national team does not have the best team.
There are many well-known players in the Czech team. There are many hockey players who play for NHL clubs. In addition, former Neftekhimik defender Ronald Knot and former SKA striker Roman Chervenka also make a significant contribution. The 37-year-old striker has appeared in all seven of the 2023 World Cup group stage matches, scoring six assists and three goals.
So what happens to the Czech Republic with a complete game? The answer is simple! The main players of the “lions” are already aged, and the young, with rare exceptions, are not so talented. The US team in this regard is very different from the Czechs for the better. She has a near perfect combination of experience and speed.
This is not surprising, because last year Americans also trusted young people. Many young hockey players from that team have notably added up and are tearing up the 2023 World Cup. The Czech leaders have aged and slowed down. You can bet on the victory of the Americans in bookmakers with a coefficient of 1.83.
“Bats” may still be in the degradation zone:
Majorca-Valencia. The fear of flying works wonders
Of course, no one is safe in the playoffs. Many doubt that the Americans can succeed at the 2023 World Cup. They haven’t won a tournament since the distant 1960s. Well, the playoffs will dot the i. If the USA continues like this, they will have every chance to compete for gold this year.
Vladislav Tretiak: Bobrovsky is dragging Florida.
There is no doubt that the Czechs will try to make the most of the available resources and force the fight on the Americans. However, Quinn’s wards are more likely to win. In the group stage they played very well, delighting neutral fans with excellent speed and technique. Looks like they won’t slow down.
Prediction and bets for the match of the World Cup 2023 USA – Czech Republic on May 25, 2023
The game with Sweden prepared the US well for the playoffs. Young Americans know what to expect from opponents in the final stages of the tournament. I think they will continue at the same pace and beat the Czech Republic. The leaders of the “lions” are already old. In the group stage, their efforts alone were enough to beat several outsiders. The Czechs naturally lost to strong rivals.
