Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv vs Amur


The railway workers have already secured their place in the playoffs by taking the key two points in the away match in St. Petersburg on February 1st. An interesting fact is that the St. Petersburg army team, despite the undeniable leadership in the championship during the entire tournament, is one of the most convenient rivals for the current championship for Lokomotiv. The teams have met six times this season and the railway workers have won four times, with two wins coming in away matches. The victory on February 1 in St. Petersburg allowed Lokomotiv to break away from the 9th position by 20 points, thus turning the end of the regular season into an opportunity for some kind of experimentation.

The away victory over the championship leader does not solve all the game problems of Yaroslavl, lately Lokomotiv has been losing more often than scoring points. So, after the victory over SKA, the railroad managed to lose 0-3 on the road to Severstal, who frankly did not shine in the current championship. So far, Lokomotiv, with 78 points scored, retains its place in the quartet of the strongest Western Conference, but the capital Dynamo literally breathes in the back, lagging behind Yaroslavl by only one point. The main task for the remaining matches is to keep a place in the top four, which will allow starting in the playoffs from home matches.


If Lokomotiv has already secured a place in the playoffs, then the next three weeks will be decisive for Amur. The Khabarovsk team gave an excellent segment of the championship, taking 7 points out of 8 possible in four home games. The only defeat from Siberia took place outside the regular time, so Amur still took at least one point. A successful game segment allowed Amur to make a serious leap up the standings, taking off from last place to eighth. To some extent, this became possible due to the extraordinary density in the second half of the Eastern Conference standings, with Barys, Traktor, Neftekhimik and Amur equally claiming the only vacant ticket to the playoffs, located in the six-point range.

Khabarovsk residents are in the most advantageous position, occupying eighth place and two points ahead of their nearest competitor. Into the hands of Amur and the calendar of the remaining matches. After a three-match away series, which starts with just a match in Yaroslavl, Amur returns home, where he will play the remaining six games of the championship.
