In the opening match of the game day of the VHL championship, Rostov and Trans-Urals will meet. The game will take place on January 23 at 13:00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this exciting game for you.
The Condors have a pretty good season, often winning especially on their own court. Rostov has quite good young hockey players in the squad, and they continue to fight for the playoff zone, having good chances. Recently, the team alternates between wins and losses, having no stability. In the past matches, we managed to beat modest Chelmet and Gornyak-UMMC at home.
The "Trans-Urals" looks like a typical middling league, the team is fighting for the playoffs, having a good chance of being in the coveted zone. The team performs extremely poorly on the road and rarely wins, but at home it looks quite powerful. So in the last match, the team from Kurgan beat HC Tambov without any problems in a hard fight 2:3.
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Rostov 2:3.
- Zauralye has lost only twice in its last five games.
- Rostov has a good streak of eight consecutive wins at home.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this match, because both teams do not have stability. Rostov has been looking good lately, especially in attack, but the Trans-Urals also has a pretty strong defense. I think we are waiting for a hard fight, in which the Rostov players will still be stronger.
