Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Dynamo Moscow vs Spartak

Dynamo Moscow

After a rather vigorous start in the championship, and at one time the blue-and-whites were confidently second in the West, now Alexei Kudashov's wards are somewhat addicted physically, which immediately affected the team's results. And if in home matches Dynamo continues to collect points, then on the road the capital club has already lost four matches in a row. Characteristic in this respect is the last away series of blue and white on the route Far East - Novosibirsk. In the Far East, Dynamo lost twice with the same score 1-2, losing in turn to Admiral and Amur. A series of failures continued in Novosibirsk, where the blue and white in the game against local Siberia managed to miss five goals at once, in turn, responding with only three of their own.

Nevertheless, the standings of Dynamo are quite strong, the team is much closer to the group of leaders than to the outsiders of the conference. Now the white-and-blues have 36 points, which corresponds to the fourth position in the standings of the Western Conference. Dynamo have three home matches with the middle peasants of the championship ahead, so there is a great opportunity to seriously replenish your spectacle baggage.


Just the other day, Spartak became the third club in the KHL, which in the current championship was forced to resort to coaching resignation. With Boris Mironov, the red-and-whites got off to a fairly confident start in the championship, sometimes scoring points even contrary to the logic of the game. It was clear that it could not continue like this all the time and at some point luck would turn away from the red and white. This is exactly what happened between October and November. Spartak went on a bleak streak of six losing matches in a row without catching a single point in those matches. The last straw was an unsuccessful game in Minsk, where Spartak lost to the local Dynamo with a score of 2-3.

Alexey Zavarukhin, who worked in the coaching staff of Boris Mironov, led the Spartak team to a principled duel against CSKA. Unexpectedly for everyone, Spartak managed to create a real sensation, having actually managed to beat one of the leaders of the championship without a coach. The decisive shot was scored by Matvey Zaseda, who really showed up in adult hockey this season. This victory allowed Spartak to return to the top eight of the strongest in the West, with 29 points scored, the Spartacists just close the cup eight of the conference.

Game Totals Prediction

Spartak is in a serious gaming crisis and even a victory over CSKA should not mislead anyone. The attack does not work, on average the team scores less than two goals per match, the defense is far from sinless. Against the background of Spartak, Dynamo looks more advantageous, with a well-established game scheme, which is not currently observed in the red-whites. In addition, Dynamo needs to be rehabilitated for an unsuccessful guest trip, which turned into three defeats. Our prediction is that Dynamo will win in regular time with odds of 1.67.
