Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Barys vs Vityaz


Barys continues to be in a fever, the team from Kazakhstan cannot play at least several matches in a row at their usual level. It would seem that another group of North American legionnaires has gone through a period of adaptation and has completely merged into Barys's command formations, but there is still no necessary result. Andrey Skabelka's wards go through the tournament distance of the championship in a bizarre sine wave, where there is a place for an away victory over Ak Bars 3-2, followed immediately by a home defeat 0-5 from Kunlun.

The end of October turned out to be unpleasant for Barys, during which the team suffered five defeats in a row. An unpleasant streak came to an end on November 1, in a home match against Siberia, when Barys won 3-1. But Barys again failed the next home game, losing with a score of 1-4 to a direct competitor in the Eastern Conference, Admiral from Vladivostok. This defeat has already become 15 for Barys this season, while the team has only 12 victories. Nevertheless, Barys is still clinging to the cup eight in the East, with 25 points scored just taking eighth place.


The club near Moscow, quite unexpectedly for many, had an excellent start in the championship, steadily gaining points. With a limited budget, after a disastrous last season, Vyacheslav Butsaev managed to create a completely combat-ready team. Once again, it is worth noting the team's management, which successfully worked on the transfer market. The trio of legionnaires - Wilson, Graowac, Roy, immediately became the key to Vityaz's team formations, taking on the role of leaders.

At the same time, it was clear that Butsaev was squeezing the maximum possible out of his wards, and Vityaz could not avoid a game decline. And so it happened, the second half of October for Vityaz turned out to be a failure. In eight matches, the Moscow Region team suffered seven defeats, beating only the Chinese Kunlun in this tournament segment. The team noticeably sat down physically, besides, an epidemic of injuries hit Vityaz, so a series of defeats was to some extent expected. A series of failures was interrupted in Chelyabinsk, where, in a game with the local Tractor, Vityaz quite unexpectedly managed to score five goals, winning a guest victory with a score of 5-2. It was not possible to develop success, already in the next away match Vityaz lost 1-3 to Avangard, again left without points. Thus, the Knight is now sixth in the Western Conference, with 30 points to his credit.
