In one of the most modest matches of the game day of the regular season of the KHL, an interesting confrontation awaits us, Severstal will host Siberia. The game will be held on September 27 at 19: 00 Moscow time at the Ice Palace in Cherepovets. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.
During the off-season, the team's composition changed noticeably, some leaders left, but very high-quality performers were signed to replace them, among which Chmykov and Abrosimov should be singled out. Severstal did not start very well in the championship and is now outside the playoff zone of the Western conference. In the last match, the team managed to beat Dynamo Riga at home following the results of overtime.
Andrey Martemyanov became the head coach in the summer, who immediately began building 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. This season, "Siberia" does not look the best and often loses, as it was in the last away match against "Barys". A tough fight awaits the Siberians for getting into the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Severstal - Podyapolsky (injury unknown).
"Siberia" - Jokipakka (injury unknown), Kudako (injury unknown), Chesalin(leg injury), Shashkov (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Severstal 2:4.
- Severstal has a series of three consecutive victories against Siberia.
- Sibir has won only once in their last five meetings.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this meeting, because both teams do not have stability and often fail. The hosts have a lot of young people, but it's too early for them to compete with the strongest teams in the league, but they are quite capable of beating modest Siberians weakened by injuries.
