Severstal continues its unsuccessful streak: the team has suffered four defeats in the last five meetings. The Cherepovites, who intend not only to make the playoffs, but to try to overcome the first round, lost in a recent match to one of the worst teams in the western conference, Vityaz.
Dynamo is doing much better: four wins in five matches, and the team is gaining points in all five games in a row. Muscovites have not yielded yet three meetings in a row, and in front of the strong Severstal are in a great mood.
This season the teams met only once, and then the match ended with a 3: 2 victory for Dynamo.
Bookmakers consider the “blue-white” favorites and give a coefficient of 2.12 for their victory in regular time, and 2.92 for Severstal.
Betting on the result
Muscovites are now in excellent shape and are unlikely to fear an opponent before the upcoming meeting. Dynamo won three victories in regulation time, two of which – over the strong Torpedo and one of the leaders of the West, CSKA.
Severstal, by some miracle, sometimes manages to snatch at least one point for itself, but this series must end. And the self-confident Dynamo is an ideal opponent for this. Cherepovites hardly brought the game against an outsider to overtime, one should not expect such a success against a strong leader.
Dynamo win in regulation time with odds of 2.12.
