In two matches the Austrian national team failed to score points. It ranks last in the group B table and is already 3 points behind the competition.
Austria’s troubles began in the first leg. In the confrontation with the United States, Roger Bader’s team played terribly in defense and did not show anything at the wrong gate, as a result of which it was defeated by the States – 0:11.
In the second meeting, the Eagles also lost dry, but not so big. In a duel with Sweden, they missed 4 unanswered goals – 0: 4.
In this game, Austria was again zero in attack. In an hour of the fight, she struck only 6 shots on target, and took 65 shots into her own goal, 6. 15% of which ended up in goals.
The Russian team now closes the top 3 with three points in the account. The team is three points behind the first place, and is ahead of the nearest pursuers in additional indicators.
Russia played its first match against the USA. In the confrontation with the Americans, Igor Larionov’s team was good and was able to secure a victory with a comfortable advantage – 5: 3.
The second fight Russia skated with the Czech Republic. However, in this meeting, the “red car” for some reason failed and was unable to score to the rivals even once, when it itself conceded a couple of goals and eventually lost – 0: 2.
In the aforementioned game, Russia struck 1 more hit on target (30 to 29). Deflected by Igor Larionov’s team 93. 1% of threats, but this was still not enough.
Bookmakers give 48 odds for Austria’s victory in this meeting. 0, for a draw – 25. 0, and for the victory of Russia – 1. 01.
Austria is considered the weakest participant in the current World Cup. Roger Bader’s team only attacks on holidays, but regularly misses into their net.
Larionov’s team, after the breakup with the Czech Republic, must rehabilitate and regain confidence again. And where can this be done, if not in a duel with an obvious underdog? Our forecast and bet – total over 9 with odds 1. 60.
