The Swedes opened the tournament by grinding out a 1-0 win against Germany, and followed that up with a 5-0 blowout of Austria.

They then recorded their biggest win of the tournament so far, beating defending champions Finland via a shootout.

The wins kept coming for the Swedes as they made it four-in-a-row with a 7-1 rout of Hungary, and that was backed up by a 4-0 shutout win against France.

Sweden then made it six wins in a row on Monday, beating Denmark 4-1 in an all-Scandinavian battle.

The United States go into their final group game having won all six outings at the tournament so far.

They made a superb start to the World Championship by downing defending champions Finland, 4-1, in their opening game.

The Americans then backed that up with a 7-1 blowout of Hungary, before scrapping to a 3-2 victory against Germany.

The United States then beat Austria 4-1, and followed that up with a couple of shutout victories to reach 6-0.

They beat Denmark 3-0 before recording their biggest win to date, putting nine goals past France in a 9-0 victory.

Verdict

These are two of the best teams in the whole competition defensively, so a low-scoring game is likely here.
