On Friday, may 12, a meeting will be held the fifth round of the group stage of the world hockey championship, where Denmark will play against Germany.
Bookmakers from company bet365 to win the Germans are taking bets with odds of 1.65. Success is estimated in the Danish national team 4.25. And draw the match in normal time 4,5.
Held in Denmark to 2018 World Cup hosts beat the Germans 3:2 in extra time shootouts. Forces of commands are approximately equal, name the winner of the match difficult, although the bookies a little more faith in Germany.
To be in the top four and reach the play-offs, that is the task of both teams at this stage. If Slovakia, the mistress of the championship, will take 8 place, it is instead eliminated in the first division championship, the team with the 7th place. Spot distribution in the group, we can only speculate. With high probability, one of the four places is Canada, one in Finland. But that being said, not sure.
Denmark is not the most powerful member of the world championship. In the entire history of hockey world Cup, the national team has never occupied the top position. Has been able to reach only up to the 8th place of the world championship and it was twice: in 2010 and in 2016.
Home 18 world Cup Denmark has not reached the playoffs, finishing only in fifth place.
Germany compared with your opponent looks more confident. Awards the past years from her weight. Suffice it to recall the Olympic games of 18, when the washer of a Kuzbass resident Kaprizova put a Golden point in the final match the Russians and the Germans. Germany was one step away from an Olympic gold medal.
It would be a sensation, considering that the hockey past of Germany is not so rich as in the same Russia. Today in the asset the Germans have three Olympic medals, last year’s silver and two bronze, two gold medals, FOUR and three awards of the world Cup. At last year’s world Cup, Germany also missed the playoffs.
