Tournament: Ice Hockey World Championships. Group stage.
Another round of the Ice Hockey World Championships will be held between Germany and France.
Germany has gathered quite good squad. It consists of Leon Draisaitl from Edmonton and Dominik Kahun fron Chicago and a range of good players.
The only question is the position of a goalkeeper which makes the chances of Bundesteam for the fight in play-off minimal but after Colorado Avalanche has been knocked out from the Stanley Cup amazing Philipp Grubauer has got spare time and is able to join the national team.
This all allows Germany to fight for two berths into the play-off with Denmark, Finland and Slovakia. Two other berths will probably go to the USA and Canada.
France could have gathered quite good team but because of different reasons, Stéphane Da Costa from Avtomobilist and Pierre-Édouard Bellemare from Vegas Golden Knights would not be able to strenghten the national team. But the forward from Colambus Alexandre Texier has managed to come.
But we suppose that France will have to fight for surival, though in order not to get into the lower division, it will be enough not to lose to the main underdog of the tournament – Great Britain. But France will be able to deal with Great Britain without difficulties.
We don’t think that this match will be smashing. France will surely fight against rival but won’t win. If the best happened they will manage to draw the match. But no matter how this match will end, the game will have total under outcome.
Our tip: total under (5) – odds 1.9 Pinnacle
