In the opening match of the KHL game day, we are waiting for a meeting between Torpedo and Avngard. The start of the game of these teams is scheduled for October 20 at 19:00 Moscow time in the palace "Nagorny". Our portal has prepared its forecast for this confrontation for you.

 "Torpedo"

In the offseason, Nizhny Novgorod residents again did a good job on the market and signed several little-known legionnaires from whom Nemirovski will have to sculpt new stars. While it turns out with varying success, the team does not have stability. Nizhny Novgorod residents alternate between victories and defeats, often failing in defense. In the last match, the team was able to beat Avtomobilist in a stubborn struggle at home with a score of 4:3.

"Avangard"

This season, the team has no stability, which is due to an updated squad and a weakened offensive line, compared to last season. "Avangard" has recently been able to improve the game, Omsk gave out a good winning streak, while showing bright attacking hockey. In their last meeting, the Hawks beat Sochi 4-5 in a shootout.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:
  Avangard - Goncharov (injury unknown), Tseglarik (upper body injury), Tolchinsky (injury).

Statistics and figures

  • The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Torpedo with a score of 2:3.
  • He has lost only twice to Torpedo in his last five meetings.
  • Avangard has a good streak of five consecutive victories.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in that confrontation, because both teams are able to show a good level of hockey, but they do not have stability. "Avangard" is in excellent shape now and gives out a series of victories. "Torpedo" is able to take points from the favorites at home, but so far it can't find its game. I think we are going to have a hard game here with a lot of goals.
