Match start: 15:15 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Ice Hockey World Championship. Group stage.
Canada in frames of its 4th game on the World Championship in Slovakia will play against France.
Canada has started the tournament by a sudden loss to Finland which has come to this tournament in one of the weakest starting line-up for the last several decades. But Canada has managed to win over Great Britain in the next game with the score 8:0. The match against France will be another testing game in field conditions.
France was not able to bring the strongest possible squad to Slovakia but in opening game they have managed to fight against strong Denmark, having lost only in penalty shootout. But another game has showed that they experience some problems while fighting against teams that are higher in class. France has lost with the score 1:7.
Don’t wait for intense fight. France won’t probably hang onto the game with such strong rival for which even the loss didn’t mean a lot. France will lose another match but they are good in the rivals’ zone and can wait for at least one goal.
Our tip: Canada (Asian Handicap -4.5) – odds 1.85
