The next game day of the KHL season will open, an interesting duel between the teams, Barys and CSKA. The game will be held on September 21 at 16: 30 Moscow time at the Barys Arena. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.
In the off-season, several significant leaders left the team, and there was no worthy replenishment, only a couple of legionnaires and forces from youth teams. So far, Barys has not looked the best since the start of the season, having won only a few victories. In their last match, the Kazakhs lost to Jokerit on the road in a shootout series, showing a weak implementation of their moments.
Since the new season, the team has been headed by Sergey Fedorov. Also, many key players of last season left, some in the KHL, and a number of hockey players went overseas. They were replaced by very good performers. CSKA started the new season quite confidently, but it does not do without failures, as happened in the home meeting against Barys, where there was a 3-6 defeat. However, after that, the Army managed to get two away victories.
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of "Barys" 3: 6.
- Only twice was Barys able to win in its last five games.
- CSKA has a good series of four consecutive wins on the road.
The clear favorite in this game looks like CSKA, which has a stronger and more well-played squad. Barys will have the advantage of its own platform, but the Muscovites look more reliable in defense, even despite the crushing defeat from the Kazakhs in their last meeting. I think that the "army men"should take revenge in Kazakhstan.
