In one of the most modest matches of the KHL game day, we are waiting for a meeting between Siberia and Kunlun RS. The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for September 20 at 15: 30 Moscow time at the Siberia Arena. Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.
Last season, the Siberians failed to reach the playoff zone, which led to the resignation of the coach. The main one was Andrey Martemyanov, 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. So in the last meeting, Siberia lost at home to Dynamo Moscow 4:5.
In recent years, the Chinese team has become an outright outsider of the league and a gathering place for young players and downed pilots. The mess in the administrative apparatus and the signing of incomprehensible legionnaires do not allow growth and progress. The team did not start in the best way, having obtained only two victories in the new season. Now the team has an away series, which started with two major defeats from Salavat Yulaev and Traktor.
Injuries and disqualifications:
"Siberia" - Jokipakka (injury unknown), Kudako (injury unknown), Chesalin(leg injury), Shashkov (injury unknown).
"Kunlun RS" - Joe (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a victory of "Kunlun RS" with a score of 1: 3.
- Kunlun RS has a bad series of three consecutive defeats.
- Sibir has won only once in its last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation. "Kunlun RS" habitually updated the squad in the off-season, which had a negative impact on the game of the team, which rarely wins in the new season. The composition of "Siberia" has also been updated, but the team has weakened more than it has strengthened. Both teams are experiencing problems with defense, so we should expect a lot of abandoned pucks.
