Sweden’s Agnes Nosenhauer, Anna Hazelborg and Sofia Maberks congratulate each other on the victory over South Korea.

Sweden, ready for the playoffs, have already won their last game of the regular season.

After an 8-4 win over South Korea, it is clear that the Hasselborg team will face Great Britain in the semifinals.

“We are just trying to get revenge on them,” said Agnes Nosenhauer.

The Swedish team that won the Olympic gold medal four years ago from Pyongyang will play in the semifinals on Friday at 13.05pm Swedish time.

In the second semifinal, Switzerland and Japan meet, after the big country Canada was eliminated and missed the battle for the medal.

Sweden-Great Britain will be a repeat of the European Championship final from November, when the British (like Scotland) win 7-4 and capture the gold.

– This is something we have met many times and we know well – as friends and curling warriors. Agnes Nosenhauer says that when we meet that team, we know we have to take control of the match in order to get the match where we want it.

The British team Mourhead is the only other semi-finalist team not to beat Sweden in the base round of the Olympics.

The British team won the regular season match 8-2.

In their last regular season match against South Korea, the Hasselborg team came back after a somewhat sluggish start, where Sweden ended in a 0-2 deficit.

But after taking two points in the eighth round and then immediately stealing one point, the Swedes were able to retain an 8-4 victory over South Korea.
