Finland vs Switzerland Predictions 


Switzerland has shown much more than Finland so far in the tournament. They will also want to secure the highest position possible ahead of the quarterfinals, and I will back them to beat their inconsistent opponents.

  • Finland have lost 2 of their last 3 matches. 
  • Switzerland have won 6 of their last 7 matches. 

Head to Head 


Finland have a 15-7 advantage against Switzerland in 22 matches. 

They last met earlier this month, the game being won by Finland 3-1. 

Finland Form 


The Finns, who exited in the quarter-finals a year ago, opened the tournament with a 1-0 loss at the hands of the Czech Republic.  

They rebounded in emphatic fashion in their next outing, steamrollering Great Britain in an 8-0 victory.  

Finland followed that up with another win, beating Norway 4-1, but they were unable to make it three-in-a-row.  

The Finns suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat to Austria in the 4th round, followed by another defeat against the champions Canada 5-3 two days ago. The losing streak was ended last night with a 3-1 win over Denmark. 

Switzerland Form 


Switzerland have already secured their place in the knockout stage by winning five of their six games so far. 

The Swiss, who exited in the quarter-finals after topping their group a year ago, got off to a strong start this time around as they beat Norway 5-2. 

They then backed that up with a thrilling 6-5 victory over Austria, before battling their way to a 2-1 win against the Czech Republic. 

The Swiss downed Team GB 3-0, and then topped that with an 8-0 demolition of Denmark on Saturday. However, they suffered the first loss in the tournament against Canada 3-2 on Sunday.  

Verdict

Finland’s recent performances against Austria and Canada were poor (lost both), while Switzerland are in great shape. I will back the Red Crosses to claim another victory.
