Both teams play two games in two days. Sochi went on hiatus on a positive note. Lost in the course of the meeting 0: 4, having managed to win in a crazy match against Severstal (5: 4). And in the same spirit Andrey Nazarov’s charges continued to work after a pause – a 3: 2 victory over Dynamo in overtime.
Vityaz had mirror meetings with Dynamo Riga, beating the Rigans before the break for the Eurotour in overtime with a score of 3: 2, but losing with the same score in the same period after leaving the short-term off-season.
Despite the recent results, Podol residents are considered favorites. The odds for their victory in the match are 1.76. Guests – 2.11.
We disagree with the bookmakers. Sochi beat Vityaz twice this season (6: 5OT, 3: 1). The South Club has successfully passed the Cherepovites, who are not in the best shape, but even so they are fighting on equal terms with Magnitka, Avangard and Jokerit. What kind of club Dynamo Moscow is and where it is located, you yourself know. In recent meetings, Vityaz was inferior to teams higher than itself, with the same outsiders it played in different ways. Someone was inferior, someone was defeated. So we are against.
Vityaz will not lose in regulation time plus total over 1.5 with 1.72 odds.
