Switzerland vs. France

For the first time in this 2022 IIHF World Championship we are breaking down Switzerland and France, two teams that have played up to expectations thus far. Switzerland is doing very well and has been winning consistenly but is yet to face the best team in the group. Their opponents this Sunday, France, have expectedly done enough to survive relegation and can always be awkward customers when underestimated.

Swiss roster is made up of a strong core from their domestic NLA league and a couple of NHL names which is proving to be more than enough to progress from the group. The only game that a was bit more demanding so far was the clash against Slovakia in which they secured a 5:3 win. Kazakhstan, Denmark and Italy couldn´t do too much against them as their true worth will be shown this Saturday against the main group favourites, Canada.

Despite their stellar results, it´s worth noting Switzerland is playing without its best NHL players Nino Niederreiter and Roman Josi. That just goes to show how much they improved their domestic league, which is one of the strongest ones in Europe, but to be honest they have an easy group with only one title favourite.


France has done enough to survive relegation and is still in quarter-final contention. With the team they brought to Finland, avoiding relegation was never in question but with the current situation, they could be looking at a quarter-final berth. Primary reason for that is not their sensational quality but the fact they are in a weak group with only two top teams, Canada and their opponents today Switzerland.

After taking care of Kazakhstan in round 2, they had their match of the tournament on Wednesday against Italy. That game had added importance because the winner would not only avoid relegation but also remain in knockout contention. It was France getting the win in dramatic fashion equalizing the game with a minute left and then scoring the winner after 60 seconds of overtime.

Switzerland vs France Prediction

Even though they are pilling up wins, the Swiss haven´t been overly confident at the back. France has solid offensive firepower and should be able to find the net at least once or twice but their defense won´t be able to hold off Switzerland´s talented attack, whose players have a lot of chemistry from playing together in the domestic league.
