After two defeats in the preliminary round, the German goal in the quarter-finals of the World Ice Hockey Championships in Latvia was suddenly in danger. Against the United States, every point counts, and under certain circumstances, one victory is sufficient. The penultimate group match on Monday from 3:15 pm on the live broadcast.

9 am: Welcome to our online FOCUS live bar! Perhaps for the first time with NHL striker Dominik Kahun, the German national ice hockey team will play against USA at the World Cup in Riga. It is the penultimate preliminary round match about participation in the quarter-finals.
Initial position: After the furious start of the World Cup, Germany has lost two consecutive games by three wins and is under pressure. To get the minimum goal in the quarter-finals, points are badly needed.
In theory, beating the US in 60 minutes is enough, but then Kazakhstan would lose to Norway as well. Otherwise, there will be a final match against the host country Latvia. However, every point counts. Thus, simply accessing the extension against the US could be of great value.
Discount: Although the United States has only been crowned world champions twice and its last title was 61 years ago, it is considered one of the best countries in ice hockey. The team this year is made almost entirely of NHL players and is very talented, but does not have any stars. With 12 points from five matches, the United States is clearly on its way to the quarter-finals. The last German victory in the World Cup so far came against the United States Boys in 2017 in the World Cup at home (2-1).
employees: Cahn could play for Germany for the first time in these World Cup finals, and talented Lucas Reichhel might return. NHL striker Kahun traveled to the Edmonton Oilers last week after the qualifiers, and the mandatory quarantine ends on Monday.
If the PCR test turns out to be negative in the morning, the 25-year-old will storm the United States – and possibly the 19-year-old Rachel too. The Ispren Berlin striker missed the 1: 2 match against Finland on Saturday after checking his head in the match against Kazakhstan (2: 3) last Wednesday.
Sports Director: “It’s going to be a very close match at eye level, in which the two teams will try to win. The little things will decide,” said Christian Konast, Director of Sports at DEB.
Point of view: The final contender in the preliminary round is Latvia, which hosts the World Cup on Tuesday. Then the match will also take place in front of the spectators. The Latvian Parliament recently passed a corresponding decision. Even if defeated by the United States, Germany would still have everything in its hands.
