2020 World Junior Championship. Russia U20 - Germany U20

The under 20 Russian national team will face Germany in the concluding group stage match of the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Initially, Russia began the Group B campaign with a narrow 3:4 loss to the Czech hosts, before thrashing Canada 6:0 in the second. However, in the third game, our players conceded a disappointing 1:3 loss to the Americans which means that they now have to defeat Germamy in order to qualify for the knockout stage.

Germany, for their part, did lose 3:6 against the Americans in their maiden game, but they then defeated the Czech Republic 4:3. The Germans were beaten 1:4 by Canada in their previous match.

Yegor Zamula (2), Vasily Podkolzin, Alexander Khovanov, Pavel Dorofeev, Nikita Rtishchev, Nikita Alexandrov, Yegor Sokolov, Grigory Denisenko and Alexander Romanov have scored for Russia at the tournament so far.

Nikita Rtishchev is suspended for this match.

Puck drop is scheduled for 17:00 Moscow time. Match TV will provide a live television broadcast in Russia.
