With floorball giant Czech Republic in this group, it’s easy enough to predict the winner. Poland will aim for the second spot, although beating the Czechs won’t be impossible. They shouldn’t focus too much on statistics, however, as in all previous official games, the Czech Republic always managed to beat Poland. It looks like Estonia and Italy only have a chance of reaching the WFC by becoming one of the two best numbers 3 of all four EUR groups, so these teams will probably focus on getting not too many goals against, and scoring as many as possible against each other.

All games will be streamed for free by the IFF YouTube channels. Written time is CET.
