“Barys” – “Avtomobilist”
A bright meeting is expected in Kazakhstan. “Barys” has recently been playing by itself and letting others play. In the last 6 meetings – 3 wins and 3 losses, with 4 tops and only 2 bottoms. It is interesting that one of the lower ranks came to the game in Yekaterinburg, where “Barys” defeated “Avtomobilist” – 2: 0. But in that meeting, Yonni Ortio shone at the goal, reflecting more than 30 shots on his goal. It will be very difficult to repeat, especially in such a short segment. And even after that match, Ortio did not look so reliable.
“Avtomobilist” changed the coach, but the results are just awful – 4 defeats in a row. During this time, the Yekaterinburg team conceded 18 goals. The defense cannot be established in any way, and Barys has a powerful attack, in which both tough Europeans and North Americans are gathered. I expect that many pucks will visit Avtomobilist’s goal again, but it’s time for him to answer. The selection of players is cool, after all – Golyshev, Cormier, Da Costa, Shumakov, Spooner, Meysek. It is impossible to play badly with such a squad all the time.
Therefore, I propose to take over – more than 5.5 washers.
Ak Bars – Metallurg Mg
A cool confrontation awaits us in Kazan. The teams will meet for the fourth time this season. So far, there is a certain trend – “Magnitogorsk” won all the matches through the bottom. It seems that now the total is not visible less, if you look at the results of “Ak Bars”, he has all the games are fun. “Metallurg” is generally the most productive team in the league. Therefore, we will not take risks with this option, although they usually forget about style in matches with each other and begin to be careful.
But the second tendency may well be confirmed. “Metallurg” is on an away tour – lost to “Vanguard”, won “Vityaz”. But Omsk is not ashamed to lose now, he got in shape. And Kazan in the last match at home lost to Severstal, however, outside of regular time.
It seems to me that Metallurg’s roster is more complete. Plus three victories this season over a serious rival added confidence to the Magnitogorsk team. Kazan goalkeeper’s line does not inspire confidence, especially since Bilyalov was injured. Bobkov is not a guarantee of reliability. Therefore, I will play the guests with a handicap (0).
