The program of the game day of the KHL championship will end with a not the loudest, but very intriguing confrontation, Spartak will host Avangard. The game will be held on September 21 at 19: 30 Moscow time at the Megasport Arena. Our portal also offers you its own version of the forecast for this game.
Last season, the Muscovites managed to jump into the playoff zone, but it was impossible to advance further than the first round in the series against CSKA. In the off-season, there was a personnel purge, several interesting performers were signed to the team, among them experienced Loktionov and Kugryshev. After a confident start, the team began to slow down, losing in previous meetings at home to SKA and CSKA, but now the modest Dynamo Riga in the last game, the Muscovites beat without problems with a score of 3: 1
After the outflow of a large number of players in the off-season, the management tried to replace the leaders, but there were no high-profile signings, it is worth noting only the legionnaire from Sweden Tseglarik, who shows a fantastic game in the opening matches of the championship. Recently, Omsk has sunk a little and suffered a number of offensive defeats, but in the last meeting they interrupted a series of failures with a victory over Avtomobilist with a score of 1:3.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Spartak-Virtanen (injury unknown).
Avangard - Dergachev (injury unknown), Mizyurin (lower body injury), Kosov (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Spartak with a score of 2: 3.
- Avangard has not lost in the main time for four away meetings against Spartak.
- In their last five meetings, Spartak has won only twice.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation, because both teams do not have stability. The guests ' team is only being built, although it looks very confident in some meetings. Spartak routinely beats outsiders, but Muscovites have not learned how to score points with the favorites. I think the guests will leave with a victory.
