The last face-to-face meeting took place in February last year. The confrontation took place during an international tournament (Slovakia) and ended with the victory of the tournament hosts in regulation time with a score of 4:3. At the World Cup teams met in 2018. Back then the Slovak national team won the victory with a score of 7:4 and the Belarusians went to the First Division after finishing, taking the last place in Group A.Bet Now!
Belarusians have qualified for the World Championship for the first time in the last couple of years. Last time they took part in the group stage already in 2018, then they took the last 8th place in the standings of group A. They showed disgusting implementation of chances, while acting mediocre in defense.
Now practically nothing has changed, Mikhail Zakharov's wards cannot boast of high-quality attacking performers. Of course, they have several players from the Continental Hockey League, but this is unlikely to help them against the world's giants.
Craig Ramsey's wards were on the verge of qualifying from the group at the 2019 World Cup. As a result, they took the fifth position, only three points were not enough for them to overtake the United States of America.
Judging by the past results, we can conclude that they have an impenetrable goalie line. In addition, they are confident in attacking.
We see that the Belarusian team turned out to be completely unprepared for this World Championship. You can also take a closer look at the alternative rate. The individual total is less than two goals for Mikhail Zakharov's charges, who lack sharpness in the attack.
Moreover, the Slovaks promote viscous and pragmatic hockey, which means they will make every effort to "dry the game".
Our prediction is victory for Slovakia on the line of 1xBet with odds of 2.23.
Second bet: boldly take a total under 4.5 goals for 2.03.
Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 2.23.
