Before the tournament start Sweden could have been said to be able to play this game without pressure, but as it stands now Sweden should have at least just as good chance to win as Russia. Both teams will be dissapointed with a loss ( well "duh", but I hope you get my point).

If we would compare Switzerland to Sweden, which team would fit the Russian the best? Sweden has better depth at forward and perhaps also better top end forwards than the Swiss, but the Swiss might just have a better teamplay/better suited for defensive play.

Sweden showed great promise against Finland with their offense but their deffense will still need a lot of improvement. If russia continues to play like they did today this should not be to much of a problem.

Only negative thing about this swedish team is that their penalty kill is abysmal, the shots gets through from the point 9 times out of 10 etc. Goaltending is also a questionmark. Lassi is a dwarf, Lundström we just don't know where we have him. Vasilevsky is saftey personafide, so big, so athletic... great in shootouts as well.

Hoping for Lundström as well, but it seems doubtful to me.

Sweden is the favourite based on what I've seen so far which scares me. We are used to being the underdog

If Russia takes as many penalties as today Sweden will burn them in PP but Swedens BP is not great which will be tested against Russia as well. Sweden

I feel Swedem is a better team but Russia has some top end talent that this Swedish team is lacking.

4-2 to Sweden.

What is it with this obsession of saying "Juniorkronorna" in Viasat? They even had it on the playoff-bracket: Canada-USA Juniorkronorna-Ryssland. Jidhe's the worst of them all.

You never see another country downgrade their team like that.

Say: Sverige for **** sake!
They carry our nation's flag for the moment.

So Russia. A do-over from last year. That's all.

And of course Lundström must start. Otherwise it's Luleå-Favoritism and just plain idiocy.

Both teams haven't impressed me, so the chances are 50x50

I dont know from where i know this but im pretty sure that Juniorkronorna is the offical name of the U20 national team.

Yakupov is roaring back in this one, two goals including a GWG

Russia can win this. With their goaltending, anything is possible.

Also, **** Varnakov.

If both top lines are going for Russia then I can see them winning. If the Yakupov lines decides to not show up again then the Russians are going to lose.

Really? OK. But it's still stupid, in my book.

This is the game we decide who our first goaltender is

I'm hoping Lundström starts, you can't argue with his edge in experience.

I think we have a good shot at winning this game, it will be tough though.. This win against Switzerland should get the russians amped, hopefully they are a bit exhausted.

Really stinks that I will miss the first half of the game, was hoping it was going to be played at 10 cet :<

Time for Karlsson to stop coasting if we're gonna win this one.

Tricky to guess, however since I am not objective I'll guess Sweden 4-2 in regulation time. However I fear we will see better play from the russians - they certainly can and they should be properly motivated by now.
