Russia and USA duel for ice hockey gold at Lausanne 2020

Lausanne 2020 - Ice Hockey OIS
The Winter Youth Olympic Games stages the latest instalment of one of ice hockey's greatest rivalries

Fireworks are guaranteed when Russia and USA meet in ice hockey.

And while Russia - including the Soviet Union, Unified Team and Olympic Athletes from Russia - share the record tally of nine golds in Olympic men's competition with Canada, there is a special frisson when they face off against the USA.

You can watch the clash live here on Olympic Channel at 15:00 CET

After three comprehensive victories so far, Russia go into Wednesday's Winter Youth Olympic Games final as firm favourites with Matvei Michkov scoring seven goals.

But Isaac Howard has also found the net seven times at Lausanne 2020, and he will be hoping to lead USA to a famous win.
