Germany was the overwhelming favorite in this event, as they had swept the medals on the large hill event, and had won both individual gold medals, with Eric Frenzel taking gold on the normal hill and Johannes Rydzek winning the large hill event. Germany had won both team events at the 2017 World Championships and the normal hill team event at the 2015 Worlds.

Austria actually led after the large hill jumping, but by only 4.8 points over Germany. The Austrians were not expected to be able to match the Germans’ ski prowess. In the ski relay it was not really close as Germany had the best ski time by almost 32 seconds over Norway, who came on for the silver medal. The final placements were spread out, as it was another 42.1 seconds to Austria, who held on for the bronze medal, leading fourth-placed Japan by 42 seconds.
