In the second semifinal match of the 2024 Ice Hockey World Championship, held in the Czech Republic, Canada will face Switzerland. The game will take place on Saturday, May 25, commencing at 18:20 Central European Time.

Canada

The Maple Leafs had an impressive group stage, winning all seven matches. Unlike Sweden, Canada didn't achieve the maximum 21 points due to two games going into overtime. However, they struggled with power-play efficiency, scoring six goals from 27 attempts, ranking eighth in the tournament with a 22.22% success rate. Additionally, Canada’s penalty kill has been lackluster, conceding six goals and ranking 11th in the tournament with a 77.78% efficiency.

In the quarterfinals, Canada faced no significant issues against Slovakia, securing a convincing 6-3 victory. One of the goals conceded was an own goal by Connor Bedard, who deflected the puck into his own net, and another was a shorthanded goal. Essentially, the Maple Leafs created their own problems, resulting in the goals they conceded.

Switzerland

The Swiss team performed admirably in the group stage, suffering only one defeat, which was against Canada in a close 3-2 game. They won all their other matches. Switzerland boasts excellent power-play statistics, converting 10 out of 34 attempts (29.41%), ranking third in the tournament. However, their penalty kill has been problematic, conceding nine goals from 28 attempts, with a 67.86% success rate, placing them 15th in the tournament.

In the quarterfinals against Germany, Switzerland had a stellar first period, scoring two goals and playing convincingly. The Germans leveled the play and scored in response, making it 2-1. In the third period, Germany performed better but failed to score, and Switzerland sealed the victory with an empty-net goal in the final minute, winning 3-1.

My prediction is a Canadian victory with odds of 1.81.
