The regular season of the KHL continues, we are waiting for an intriguing confrontation between the teams, "Neftekhimik" and "Spartak". The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for September 24 at 19: 00 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared a forecast for the outcome of this meeting for you.
Neftekhimik managed to pull off several good signings in the summer, for example, the return of Sexton should add creativity to the team in attack, and the signing of Tuohimaa-reliability in goal. After a confident series of home victories, the team's game sank a little, the attack did not look so confident on the road, which led to two consecutive defeats. In the last games, the team looked uncertain and unexpectedly lost to Sochi 0: 1 and Tractor 1: 3.
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 Muscovites beat the modest Riga Dynamo in the last game without any problems, but they lost to the powerful Avangard without a chance 0: 4.
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Spartak with a score of 4: 2.
- Neftekhimik managed to get one victory in its last five matches.
- Spartak has won only twice in its last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because both teams do not have a margin of safety. Nizhnekamsk began to slow down after the home series and now rarely win. Spartak also alternates between victories and defeats, not being able to play with clear favorites. I think that Nizhnekamsk residents will be able to win on their own platform.
