Preview Day 3: Clash of the titans

Hits: 45

WINTERTHUR. With the third day of competition about to begin we have some thrilling games to watch. Yesterday’s preliminaries held little surprise in the top two Groups with Austria, Brazil, Germany and Switzerland all winning their games of the day. We will have a better idea of the placings of the top four at the end of today however, with Germany to play Austria at 1900 and Switzerland to play Brazil at 2015. For Groups C and D, the top two teams are clear cut and are The Czech Republic and Namibia. The second place team in Group D is likely to be Denmark but in Group C either Serbia or New Zealand could potentially proceed through at this stage.

Chile and USA to thrill

Both Chile and the USA played excellent games yesterday and if they can play like this again today’s game will be a great one to watch.  While Chile come in as the favourites on paper it is hard to know what the outcome will be with USA showing great form in attack and skill in defence. The game will be played on centre court at 1745.

Can Austria upset Germany

Austria has played a good tournament so far but has yet to be put under real pressure. With Germany coming in as the clear favourites Austria will need to come out in top form to be in with a chance at putting Germany on the defensive. The team of Austria has changed considerably from the last world championships and is a much younger side. Austria is similar to the team that met Germany two years ago at the world games however. The game will begin at 1900.

Is it Switzerland’s turn to win against Brazil

The last time Switzerland and Brazil met was at the world games in 2017 with Brazil the victors in a close 3-2 game. The host nation will be fighting for a win today and no doubt the majority of the crowd will be cheering for them. Brazil as we know have passionate fans though so perhaps the home ground advantage won’t be too evident today. The game will begin at 2015.
