Conditions for Group A
It is already clear that the teams advancing from Group A to the playoffs are Switzerland, Russia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. However, it remains to be seen which finalists the team will take, which will determine what opposition awaits in the quarter.
Switzerland have now done everything they can, and their position depends on how other teams perform. If Russia do not get any points in the match against Belarus, the team can retain the first place. Most likely, the team will take second place in the group.
For Russia to win this group, you need to get at least one point from today’s meeting with Belarus. If you do not have points, you will be relegated to third place if Slovakia wins the match against the Czech Republic.
With the win against the Czech Republic Slovakia could get the same points against Switzerland, but considering the mutual encounter, they could not beat the team. At best, you may come second in the group, but most likely you will finish third or fourth.
For the Czech Republic, advancing to third place is good. This requires a win against Slovakia.
