Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Severstal vs Admiral


Severstal is not the first time in its history gives a great start in the championship, followed by a decline. Such tactics at the start of the season are already becoming Andrei Razin's trick, and the current championship was no exception. In the first six matches, the Cherepovites won four victories, and such serious teams as Tractor 4-2, Metallurg 4-3 and CSKA 4-1 fell under the hot hand of Andrey Nazarov's wards. The victory over Metallurg turned out to be especially epic, when, after two periods, Severstal was hopelessly losing with a score of 0-3, but managed to transfer the game to overtime, removing the goalkeeper twice. In overtime, Razin took a risk again, replacing the goalkeeper with a field player when playing in equal compositions, and again he did not fail. Alexander Petunin put a winning point in this dramatic game.

In recent matches, Severstal's ardor faded somewhat and, as a result, the team lost three matches in a row. The Cherepovites fought on an equal footing with the St. Petersburg SKA on the road, but still lost in overtime 1-2. This was followed by a misfire in Minsk, 2-3 in the game against local Dynamo, and a home defeat by Dynamo Moscow 1-3. The unsuccessful streak also affected the standings of Severstal. The team dropped out of the cup eight in the West, with 9 points scored, ranking ninth.


The Far East have the same nine points at the moment, but the higher density in the Eastern Conference standings allows Admiral to be in seventh place. The Admiral has traditionally been excellent at home matches, which is largely facilitated by the geographical location of Vladivostok, while frankly holding away matches poorly.

This season is no exception so far. Away, the Far East have so far won only one victory, having managed to beat Sochi, which was frankly weak at the start of the season, with a score of 4-1. Things are noticeably better for the Admiral in home matches, where the strong Salavat Yulaev has already been beaten twice 2-0 and 2-1, as well as the Chinese Kunlun, which is pleasantly surprising this season, 3-1. Admiral is fourth in the League in goals conceded (15 in 9 games), but has serious problems in creation, having thrown all the same 15 goals.

Both teams are not in the best psychological state, having lost several matches in a row. Closer to the interruption of the unpleasant series, the Severstal hockey players, who looked good even in unsuccessful matches for themselves, but somewhere the realization failed, and somewhere their own mistakes in defense. Another weighty argument in favor of Severstal is the home status of the match, as practice shows, Admiral on the road so far looks extremely unconvincing.
