Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Neftekhimik vs Dynamo Moscow


Wards of Oleg Leontiev failed miserably at the beginning of the season, already after the first matches played, firmly settled at the bottom of the standings. Along the way, Neftekhimik updated his anti-record, having managed to lose ten matches in a row. Already now we can say that the summer transfer campaign worked in the negative, as a result of which the club was not able to close the holes in the line-up that formed after the departure of a number of leading hockey players. Neftekhimik lost the leading pair of defenders - the Czechs Ronald Knot and Lukasz Kloh, as well as the main star of the attack - forward Marat Khairullin, who is currently regularly scoring points in the uniform of St. Petersburg SKA. The club's newcomers have not yet been able to fully replace last year's leaders, hence such a deplorable result.

In fairness, it is worth noting that recently Neftekhimik's business has gone smoothly. The team won three victories in a row, two of them on the road. At home, Siberia was beaten 2-1, but on the road, Neftekhimik first managed to beat Metallurg 6-5, and then Tractor 2-1. This did not bring special dividends in terms of moving up the standings to Neftekhimik, with seven points scored, Leontiev's wards are still closing the standings in the East, three points behind the closest rival.

Dynamo Moscow

Blue and white plans to build a new team around their own talented young people seem to be starting to bear fruit. In the summer, it seemed that the loss of Shipachev, Galiyev, Voinov and a number of other players who determined the team’s game pattern would finish off Dynamo, and this season the blue and white can be safely deleted from the list of contenders for high places. However, Aleksey Kudashov proved that even without bright stars it is possible to build a completely combat-ready team.

First of all, it is worth noting the defense of Dynamo, conceded 21 goals in 14 games, four clean sheets, only the sole leader, SKA St. Petersburg, has better performance in the League. The attack is not so bright, 41 abandoned pucks, but the absence of Vadim Shipachyov, the main striking force of Dynamo in recent years, still affects here. Before the visit to Nizhnekamsk, the blue-and-whites scored six victories in a row, including over SKA in St. Petersburg, inflicting the first defeat of the season on the army team. Now Dynamo have 22 points and second place in the standings of the Western Conference.
