KHL: HC Sochi - Chelyabinsk

30 Aug 2021
28.12.21 - 17:30 CET

The home team Sochi is out of the playoff position, specifically after 42 games played they are only in 10th place in the Western Conference with 39 points. They have a negative score of 98:116 in those games. Sochi is currently nine points behind the playoffs with one game to play. The last five games have seen the home side go 1-1-1-2, gain five points and score 14:17, which is more than three goals conceded per game.

Visiting Traktor Chelyabinsk is doing exactly the opposite. After 44 games played, Traktor is 2nd in the Eastern Conference with 63 points. In those games, the visitors have a score of 131:107 and their offense is one of the best in the entire KHL. After today's reprehensible stumble by Magnitogorsk, Traktor can close the gap on them to one point. The last five games have meant a 3-0-0-2 for the visitors and a 16-14 score.

In the current season, these two teams played one game together in mid-October and Chelyabinsk won 4:2 at home.

Reported absences - two players are expected to miss both sides. On the home side it will be Babenko and Dyblenko, the visitors will have to do without Byvaltsev and Kalinin.

In this match I choose the favourite from Chelyabinsk to win. If Traktor wins in regulation time, they can catch Magnitogorsk. Moreover, Chelyabinsk has one of the best offenses in the whole KHL and Sochi has been conceding quite a few goals lately.

My prediction: Traktor Chelyabinsk (in regular time) @ 2.0 (bet365)
