In the only match of the KHL game day, we are waiting for a meeting of interesting teams, Barys will host Sochi. The game will take place on December 9 at 16:30 Moscow time at the Barys Arena. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.
So far, Barys has not looked the best since the start of the season, alternating victories and defeats. All this is due to big changes in the leadership and the loss of many key players, without whom it is difficult for the team to cope and win every match. In the last meetings, the Kazakhs gained confidence and gave out a series of victories, and in the last match they managed to defeat the powerful AK Bars 1:2 on the road.
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 team has no stability, alternating wins and losses. So after the victory over Dynamo Minsk, the Sochi team failed in the last match and lost 5-0 on the road to Salavat Yulaev with a big score.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Barys - Martinsson (injury).
Sochi - Babenko (injury) Kruglov (injury).
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of Sochi 5-2.
- Sochi has lost only twice in its last five games.
- Barys has two defeats in a row on its site.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this game, because both teams lack stability. Barys will have the advantage of its own platform, and you need to score points after a disastrous stretch, but it will be very difficult to do this, because the guests are in good shape now. I think the hosts will be able to win here.
