Game Preview: HC Lausanne vs EVZ

After Saturday's 3-2 home win on penalties against Geneva, some things are already certain ahead of Matchday 52 of the 2023/24 regular season. Firstly: EVZ can still win – victory over the current European champion ended the negative streak of eight defeats! Secondly, and this is much more important: EVZ is at least in fourth place and begins the quarter-finals with a home match on Sunday, March 17. Third: EVZ can take third place on Monday with a victory in regular time or after extra time and penalties in Lausanne and qualify for the 2024/25 Hockey Champions League, provided that the future national league champion comes from the top three or Geneva-Servette so-called. If they win after 60 minutes, Zug will be ahead of Vaudois either way; If they win after extra time or penalties, both teams will receive two wins and six points. In this case, the central Swiss team is in third place, ahead of Lausanne, with a goal difference of one goal better than in all 52 matches. After 51 rounds, the goal difference between the two teams is +29.
