The next game day in the KHL will continue with an interesting match, in which Jokerit and Torpedo will meet. The start of the game is scheduled for September 16 at 18: 30 Moscow time at the Hartwall Arena. Our portal could not ignore this game and prepared its forecast for you.
Last season cannot be attributed to the "buffoons", the team made it to the playoffs, but it proved to be terrible there, having been immediately eliminated in the first round from Lokomotiv without winning a single game. Nevertheless, the management decided to leave the head coach and signed several very interesting performers under him, including from the NHL. After a nondescript start, the Finns were able to give out a series of victories in the last meetings, which allowed them to rise to the leading group of the western conference. In their last game, the Finns defeated Lokomotiv with a score of 2: 0.
This offseason, the Nizhny Novgorod team again did a high-quality job on the market and signed several little-known foreign players from whom Nemirovsky will have to mold new stars. So far, it is turning out very well, after not the best start, the team began to gain momentum and in previous meetings beat Sochi and SKA at home, showing impressive implementation. However, the Nizhny Novgorod team failed their last game and lost to the modest Riga "Dynamo" 2: 1 on the road.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Jokerit - Haapala (leg injury).
"Torpedo" - Belevich (injury unknown), Volchenkov (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a 4:1 victory for Jokerit.
- Jokerit has a good series of four consecutive victories.
- He has lost only twice to Torpedo in his last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because both teams are extremely unstable. Nizhny Novgorod had a good off-season and signed some good players, but so far they alternate wins and losses in the championship. "Jokerit" also failed the start and only in the last meetings began to win. It seems that the Finns have found their way of playing, so I believe in their success in this game.
