In Tampere, the puck slips into the French goal, but there was a dangerous play in the goalkeeper’s area and an “attack” on the goalkeeper, so the referees immediately cancel the goal without even watching the video replay.
Switzerland – Slovenia 6:0 A few seconds after the majority, the Swiss score the sixth goal. The Slovenians lose the puck again in their own zone in a scramble at the rim, play and Miranda scores without any problems.
Switzerland does not realize the majority this time. It won’t be 100%.

For Slovenia, the majority of Slovenians have a chance to score at least one goal

Austria got the majority in the third minute, but didn’t really create anything dangerous in two minutes.
In Arena Riga, the first five minutes are convincingly played by the Swiss, who got to know the arena well in two test matches in Riga before the championship. Also “on paper” the Swiss are the favorites of the game.
