In one of the most modest matches of the next game day, we are waiting for a meeting between Dynamo Riga and Sochi. The game will be held on September 27 at 19: 30 Moscow time at the Arena Riga. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.
This offseason, there were again a lot of personnel losses, which were made up for by rather controversial signings. A completely new goalie line should add to the reliability of the team, but so far the form of the newcomers is far from ideal. The residents of Riga rarely win in the new season and are still on the last line of the western conference. On the road, they look terrible at all, having lost all the matches in the last series.
The team's composition underwent many changes before the start of the season, which significantly weakened the roster. "Sochi" started confidently in the championship and got several victories, but after that the team sagged and gave out a terrible series of defeats, demonstrating a weak level of hockey, especially playing poorly on the road. In the last meeting, Sochi lost to Jokerit with a score of 4: 2 without a chance.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Dynamo - Mamchits (injury unknown), Kristaps (injury unknown).
Sochi - Rubtsov (injury unknown).
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with a victory for Sochi with a score of 5: 6.
- Dynamo has never managed to beat Sochi in home matches.
- Sochi has won only once in its last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite here, because both teams are not looking their best right now. Residents of Riga usually have problems with defense and miss a lot. In turn, Sochi residents lack stability and self-confidence, but still the best selection of performers should help the guests win this game.
