KHL: Yekaterinburg - Kazan

30 Aug 2021
29.12.21 - 15:00 CET

After 43 games, Yekaterinburg is out of the playoff position in the Eastern Conference, specifically in 9th place with 40 points. In those games, the home team is nearly even at 121:122. They are currently 2 points behind the playoffs, but right behind them is Khabarovsk, which has the same points as Yekaterinburg, so the fight for 8th place will certainly be interesting. The last five games have been literally misery for Yekaterinburg. The home team is 0-0-1-4, 7:21 and has only one point after a shootout loss to Barys Nur-Sultan. They conceded in an average of over four goals per game and didn't even score 1.5 per game, a truly bad score and even more bad form.

Visiting Kazan is currently 3rd in the Eastern Conference after 43 games with 58 points. In these games the visitors have score of 111:100. The visitors are seven points behind second-placed Chelyabinsk, but they have to watch their backs as Ufa is one point behind them and Omsk four points behind. The last five games for the visiting team were 2-1-1-1, 19:15 and seven points. Almost four goals scored per game is a great card, but Kazan should improve defensively (of course, they've played quality teams - Magnitogorsk, Cherepovets, Chelyabinsk and Ufa are among the better teams in the KHL).

The home team is expected to miss four players - Belusov, Makeyev, Mattsson and Prince.
The visitors will then have to do without the injured trio of Burmistrov, Panyukov and Voronkov.

If we look at the history, Kazan has beaten Yekaterinburg six times in a row in regulation time. This season in the KHL, these teams met twice and Kazan won 5-4 and 3-2.

In this match I'm picking the visitors from Kazan to win. They are in much better current form, scoring goals and that should pay off for a very leaky Yekaterinburg defense. In addition, the mutual matches play strongly into the hands of the guests, they obviously have a recipe for Yekaterinburg and know how to play it. In the current situation of both teams I will play a win for the guests.

My prediction: Kazan (in regular time) @ 2.05 (bet365)
