Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on SKA vs Dynamo Moscow


The St. Petersburg army team is confidently approaching the championship following the results of the regular season, increasing the gap from their direct competitors more and more. St. Petersburg also plays into the problems in the camp of the pursuers, the leader of the Eastern Conference Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg fell into a serious functional hole, losing 9 matches in a row, and competitors in the Western Conference - Lokomotiv and CSKA, cannot boast of stability this season. So, now Roman Rotenberg's wards can afford a certain impressiveness, periodically playing matches much below their capabilities.

In the last six matches, St. Petersburg lost three times, conceding 22 goals in these games. As usual, the attack helps out, which is currently the best in the League by a noticeable margin. Now the Petersburgers have already scored 181 goals, for comparison - the second result in the championship for CSKA and Nizhny Novgorod Torpedo, who scored 145 goals each. In the last game, the army team, albeit not without difficulty, still put the squeeze on the capital Spartak, beating the red-and-whites at home with a score of 3-2. After this victory, SKA got 80 points, which is 13 more than the nearest pursuer, which is the second army club - CSKA Moscow.

Dynamo Moscow

The main problem of the blue and white this season is the notorious lack of stability. The problem is quite expected, in the off-season the team parted ways with most of its leaders and now Alexey Kudashov, in fact, is building a new team, with an emphasis on homegrown youth. It turns out not bad, the Dynamo have been in the group of leaders of the Western Conference for quite a long time, only recently they have somewhat lost their positions.

Unsuccessful for Dynamo was the end of November - the beginning of December, when the team lost more often than won. Fortunately for the blue and white fans, the crisis did not drag on for their favorites, and the team entered the new year in a normal playing tone. Of the eight possible points, the Dynamo team took five, and in the last match Ufa Salavat Yulaev was beaten, who had scored an excellent move by that time. After that victory, the Dynamo had 64 points, which corresponds to fifth place in the Western Conference. The chances of finishing in the top three are not lost, only two points separate Dynamo from the third-placed Torpedo.

There is a clear bias towards SKA in the betting quotes for the outcome of the match, although this season the army team has never beaten the blue-and-whites with a difference of more than one goal. Three out of four matches ended at all outside of normal time, the winner was revealed either in a shootout or in overtime. And from the upcoming match we should expect a tough fight, Dynamo are quite capable of giving battle to the championship leader. Our prediction is Dynamo to win with a handicap (+1.5) with odds of 1.68.
