"Ak Bars" and "Barys" failed in their previous matches in the KHL regular season. Who could draw conclusions? Who will be able to take two points in this meeting, which will be held on February 23 in Kazan? The answer will be given by the prediction prepared by our experts.

Ak Bars

Actually, the Kazan club does not impress with its performance in recent matches. First, "Ak Bars" lost in the derby to "Salavat Yulaev" (2:3), after which they gave the second point to "Spartak" at home (2:3 OT).

With these failures, Dmitri Kvartalnov's squad has noticeably shaken their positions in the struggle for the status of the best team according to the details of the KHL regular season. At the same time, "Ak Bars" remains the best home team in the East, where Kazanians are ahead of "Avangard" by five points in the standings.

Barys Nur-Sultan

"Barys" out of the blue created problems for themselves, losing a home match against "Sibir". In the second period, the team from Nur-Sultan missed three times, and could not win back in the third twenty minutes (1:5).

This defeat pushed "Barys" back to the eighth position of the Eastern Conference standings. "Torpedo" and "Avtomobilist" went ahead, having 66 points in their assets each. To qualify for a more favorable position, Yuri Mikhailis's team needs to correct mistakes in defense.

Statistics

  • "Ak Bars" won four out of five previous matches against "Barys".
  • "Barys" lost in regulation time in four of the last five matches in Kazan.
  • "Ak Bars" have issued seven victories in 10 previous matches on their ice.

Our Prediction

Psychologically, the current situation is clearly worse for "Barys". If "Ak Bars" lost to a motivated opponent in the last match, then the guests of the upcoming meeting failed in the match with the "Snowflakes", who were playing just for their pleasure.

On their own ice, the Kazan team is rarely inferior to the upcoming opponent. In our opinion, the hosts will achieve a confident victory in this meeting.

Our prediction is that "Ak Bars" will win with a handicap (-1.5) for odds of 1.97 on 1xbet.
