Switzerland is certain to play in the quarter-finals of the World Championship in Czechia. In Prague, Patrick Fischer’s men crushed Denmark 8-0.

We will say that there was no photo between the two nations. A bit like during the last game between the two nations at the World Championship in Helsinki two years ago. Switzerland then spanked the Scandinavians 6-0.

This time in front of 17,225 spectators, the Helvetians opened the scoring in the 5th thanks to Nico Hischier, on passes from Kevin Fiala and Roman Josi. The captain took charge of doubling the lead in the 18th minute by rousing the Danish defense to score quietly in the empty cage. Then Kevin Fiala scored twice to make the score 4-0 and reinforce the idea that the Swiss NHL stars are clearly one step ahead of the others.

Leader of the scoring rankings for this World Cup, Roman Josi has 10 points (3 goals) in 5 matches. Nico Hischier is not far away with 9 points including 5 goals. As for Kevin Fiala, who arrived for the 3rd game against the Czechs, he has 6 points (3 goals) in 3 games.

And now Canada

In rather favorable conditions, Patrick Fischer logically reduced the playing time of his impact players. Sven Senteler was able to make it 5-0 in the 34th minute. And in the third third, it was the fourth line who took care of the goals. Calvin Thürkauf in inferiority for the 6-0, then Christoph Bertschy for the 7-0 in the 46th and finally Tristan Scherwey in the 55th. Switzerland will still have to be wary of excess confidence after this great success.

Switzerland now awaits the prestigious match against Connor Bedard’s Canada on Sunday evening (8:20 p.m.). Quite surprisingly, Switzerland has four successes in the group stage at the World Cup against the maple leaf nation (2017, 2018, 2022 and 2023). However, she lost (3-2 ap) in the quarter-finals in 2019 in Kosice after suffering the equalizer less than a second from the siren.
