In one of the most striking matches of the KHL game day, we are waiting for a meeting between Siberia and Metallurg. The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for September 22 at 15: 30 Moscow time at the Siberia Arena. Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.
Andrey Martemyanov became the head coach in the summer, who immediately began to build a new team. There were several signings in the person of Shor and Vedin, but the newcomers will hardly be able to replace the departed stars. The team noticeably sank in performance skills and creativity, which began to manifest itself during the season, where the team began to lose often. Only in the last meeting, we managed to break a series of failures with a home victory over Kunlun RS with a score of 1: 0.
In the off-season, the team lost Mozyakin, but was able to strengthen quite strongly by signing Zernov, Leipsik and Korostelev, as well as several foreign players with experience playing in the NHL. The Foxes have the highest goals for the season, and they managed to confirm their ambitions in the opening rounds, many victories have already been achieved. Now it produces an excellent series of "Metallurg", and their last victim was "Admiral".
Injuries and disqualifications:
"Siberia" - Jokipakka (injury unknown), Kudako (injury unknown), Chesalin(leg injury), Shashkov (injury unknown).
Metallurg-Potekhin (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a victory of "Siberia" with a score of 1:3.
- Metallurg has an excellent series of five victories.
- Sibir has won only twice in its last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation. "Metallurg" has clearly strengthened in the off-season and gives a great start, winning almost all meetings. The composition of "Siberia" has also been updated, but the team has weakened more than it has strengthened. I think the victory here will go to the guests.
