In one of the most modest meetings of the KHL game day, an intriguing confrontation awaits us, Sochi will host Avtomobilist.  The game will be held on October 20 at 19:30 Moscow time at the Bolshoi Stadium. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.

"Sochi"

The Sochi players started confidently in the championship and won several victories, but after that the team began to slowly lose momentum in defense and began to lose often. Now the Sochi team's series of failures looks depressing at all, the team loses in almost all matches in a row, while showing a weak game. So in the last match, the Sochi team lost to Avangard 4:5 on their site.

"Motorist"

In the off-season, the team has strengthened quite strongly at the expense of experienced veterans and added depth to the squad at the expense of young people, which has already borne fruit. The team failed to start the championship, but in the last matches they managed to adjust the game and start winning. So Jokerit and Neftekhimik and even Salavat Yulaev were beaten, but in the last meeting Yekaterinburg lost to Torpedo with a score of 4:3.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Injuries:

Sochi- Tochitsky (leg injury).

"Motorist" - Prince (injury unknown), Rasseikin (injury unknown), Gross (leg injury), Shchemerov (injury).

Statistics and figures:

  • The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Sochi 4:5.
  • Sochi cannot win two matches in a row already.
  • Avtomobilist has won only twice in its last five meetings.

Forecast

It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, the team is in bad shape right now. The "motorist" has a stronger composition, but suffers from injuries. Sochi is clearly failing now, especially defensively and rarely wins. Sochi residents were able to defeat this opponent on the road recently and, I think, they will be able to repeat their success on their own site, taking advantage of the problems with the composition of the guests.
