We will face a duel between "Metallurg Magnitogorsk" and "Barys Nursultan" on September 29. Who should you give preference to?
"Metallurg" continues their excellent streak of victories, which have already reached seven matches. The team is now on the first line of the Eastern Conference and has 18 points. Note that this season she suffered only one defeat. Recall that the "Foxes" confidently dealt with "Admiral" (5:0) away and "Siberia" (3:1), and on the home court showed an excellent game against "CSKA", winning victory with a score of 4:0.
In the confrontation with the army team, "Magnitogorsk" scored with an abandoned puck in each period, and Vasily Koshechkin reflected 30 shots in total, having issued the first "cracker" in the new season.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Barys" is a strong "middle peasant" of the League and even now occupies the eighth position of the East standings. It is noteworthy that the last four matches with his participation ended outside of regular time. So, the leopards lost to "Jokerit" (2:3 B) and "CSKA" (1:2 OT), but in the duels with "Siberia" (2:1 OT) and "Avtomobilist" (5: 4 OT) they celebrated success.
As a rule, the team does not differ in more than two goals scored per game, but in the previous meeting with "Avto" it presented the fans with five goals. It is worth saying that Yuri Mikhailis' wards still lack stability.
- "Metallurg" scored in the third period in the last two matches against "Barys".
- "Barys" have scored less than three goals in two out of three meetings.
In our opinion, "Barys" is now unlikely to be able to impose a tight fight on "Metallurg", since "Magnitogorsk" are in excellent shape and have developed a long streak of victories. Moreover, for the "Foxes" it is not difficult to score three or more goals, but the "Nursultans" usually do not score more than two goals.
Our prediction is "Metallurg's" victory with an Asian handicap (-1) with the odds of 1.75 on 1xbet.
