The quarter-finals of the 2018 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship are set. After Latvia beat host Denmark 1-0 to become the last quarter-finalists, the eight teams and pairings have become known. The top-four teams of each group are qualified for a cross-over quarter-final round and the top-two teams of each group will stay at their venue in Copenhagen or Herning respectively while the other teams will travel tomorrow.

The quarter-finals include a Russia-Canada classic on Thursday afternoon in Copenhagen while the United States will play the Czech Republic in Herning also at 16:15. In the evening Sweden and Latvia will play a Baltic Sea clash not far away from home - especially for Swedish fans as the third-largest city of Malmo is just a 20-minute train ride from the Royal Arena in Malmo. At the Jyske Bank Boxen the evening game will be Finland vs. Switzerland also at 20:15.
