Europausa for the citizens of Nizhny Novgorod was completely inappropriate. They just overclocked, scoring three victories in a row, including over the main competitors for a place in the sun. The reigning champion will be a good motivator for them, but whether this is a sufficient condition for winning away is a big question. Because the “unknown factor” comes into play again, which is applicable for each match after a pause. And we can never figure it out. Why are we there! The coaches on their teams cannot calculate it.
If it were not for the Europause and this coefficient, I would probably have decided on an unexpected forecast, predicting the Torpedo team some points in the “hawk” arena. But I remember well that almost all the holidays in Nizhny Novgorod are quite difficult, and they need time to swing. And here, as a buildup, they give “Vanguard”.
Therefore, a difficult and sometimes even tortured, but still a home victory for Avangard, won in regulation time. I won’t say anything about the advantage in the score, although I suspect that it should be small, as well as the total number of goals scored in the match.
