Germany recorded a 9-5 victory against Hungary in the final group stage match of the Men's Bandy World Championship in Khabarovsk.
The Germans dominated from the start in front of 138 spectators at the Arena Yerofey and raced into a 2-0 lead after just 13 minutes thanks to goals from Michael Dunaev and Andreij Völker.
Hungary looked to be coming back into the game when they made it 2-1 through Botond Frajka before Germany restored their two-goal cushion thanks to Alexander Kolyagin's strike.
However, the Hungarians then pushed through the gears and eventually managed to level the scores at 3-3, only for Germany to restore their lead to 5-3 at half-time.
The second half saw Germany put their opponents to the sword by scoring four goals with just two conceded in reply to seal a comfortable 9-5 victory.
This result means Germany have finished third in Group B and have therefore been given a more favourable quarter-final against Group A runners-up and hosts Russia.
Hungary finish bottom of Group B and now face a daunting match against nine-time champions Sweden in their quarter-final.
All four quarter-finals will be played tomorrow.
