Irbis will host Sputnik during the regular season of the MHL. Who will be stronger?
In the previous two matches, Irbis easily coped with the Reactor, scoring a total of thirteen goals with one missed. In the first game, the club from Kazan won with a score of 5-1, and in the second it won with a score of 8-0. Thanks to these successes, Irbis extended its winning streak, which currently totals six matches. On the eve of the confrontation with Sputnik, the Kazan team has 61 points and takes sixth place.
But Sputnik is close to losing its place in the top eight, as it has not been able to win for four matches. The negative streak began with a loss to "Chaika" (3-4 after a shootout), then there was a defeat in the second game with "Chaika" (1-2), and then two misfires in duels with "Loko-76" (2-3 and 2-5). Sputnik is still in the eighth position, but the Polar Bears are breathing down their backs, one point behind.
Statistics and figures:
- "Irbis" has six wins in a row;
- Sputnik has lost in four previous matches;
- Irbis won against Sputnik in one of the last three games.
"Irbis" seeks to extend the winning streak, and "Sputnik" wants to stop the negative one. The game is important for both teams, so I suggest betting on a total of more than 5.5.
