Hello and welcome to LIVE LIVE on the sixth day of competition of the 2021 European Curling Championships: the last qualifying round for the men’s and women’s tournaments and the women’s semifinals is scheduled. Today (Thursday 25 November) Italy will go down on the ice of Lillehammer (Norway) to play two games, one for men and one for women and the lights are on the Azzurri who have the opportunity to gain access to the continental semifinal, after the exploits of the last two days and above all the success against Sweden yesterday morning.

The Azzurri play everything against Finland, which so far has won only one of the eight games played so far. At 12.00 Retornaz and his teammates will face off against the Finnish team with the sole objective of obtaining the victory which could prove to be decisive for entering the top four of the ranking. The blues will close their European championship which has given many satisfactions by facing Switzerland at 8.00.

Italy is mistress of its own destiny: by winning it would be certain of reaching the semifinal; in case of defeat, he should instead hope at the same time that Switzerland will be overtaken by Germany, otherwise the Azzurri would be out for having lost the direct clash with the Swiss (but also with Norway if three teams finish with 5 successes and 4 defeats).

OA Sport offers you LIVE LIVE of the challenge between Italy and Finland at the 2021 European Curling Championships: news in real time, end after end, stone by stone, so as not to really miss anything. It starts at 12.00. Have a good fun.
