Russia were impressive in offense so far in the World Championship. They have scored less than four goals only once and that was the match agianst Czech Republic. In the rest of the games Russia were solid and have combined 24 goals in the matches against Switzerland, Belarus, Austria and France. They should score more than three goals again as Slovakia were conceding often. They have allowed twelve goals and had problems even against weak teams like Austria. Besides, Russia have scored 6 goals against Slovakia when these teams have met in the World Championship last year. Still Slovakia have showed a good hockey in the latest match against Sweden, have scored three goals and have only lost after extra time. They should add couple of goals again as Russia recently allowed 4 against Czech Republic and conceded 3 against Switzerland. A high scoring match is my prediction.
