Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on CSKA vs Dynamo Moscow


The army team ended 2023 in a terrible way, managing to lose five matches in a row. This is a kind of “record” for the team; CSKA has not had such a protracted series for more than ten years. The meeting that the army team held on December 30 smoothed out the impressions somewhat. At home, Cherepovets Severstal was beaten with a score of 3-1, so formally, on the New Year holidays, the army team left as winners. At the same time, it was clear that Sergei Fedorov’s team could hardly count the first part of the regular season as an asset. A place in the middle of the standings, with a huge gap from the leaders, is absolutely not the result that the current winner of the Gagarin Cup should count on.

The victory over Severstal gave the team much-needed impetus and the army team started January with two victories. And if the success in the match with the Chinese Kunlun was quite predictable, then many army fans expected the next fundamental confrontation with their fellow countrymen from Spartak with some anxiety. The fears turned out to be unfounded, the army team confidently controlled the match, achieving a victory with a score of 3-1. Despite three victories in a row, the army team is still only sixth in the West, with 54 points scored, 14 points behind the leading Yaroslavl Lokomotiv.

Dynamo Moscow

One of the teams located in the Western Conference standings above the army club is the capital’s Dynamo. Alexey Kudashev finally managed to achieve the desired symbiosis of youth and experience, so now the blue and white are justifiably serious contenders for the Gagarin Cup. Another strength of the current Dynamo is the excellent trio of foreign forwards consisting of Eric O'Dell, Cedric Paquette and Jordan Well, who already have 112 effective actions, of which 49 are goals.

It was O'Dell and Paquette who became the main characters in the last match of the blue and whites, which the team played against their fellow countrymen from Spartak. Already during the current championship, Dynamo lost twice to the red and white in overtime and were close to repeating this for the third time. The main time of the match again ended in a draw, this time with a score of 2-2, but in the third minute of overtime, Cedric Paquette took advantage of the mistake of the Spartak goalkeeper, thereby putting a winning point in this match. This victory brought Dynamo to third place in the standings, while the gap from the leading Lokomotiv is minimal and amounts to two points.

Game Totals Prediction

The army team has noticeably improved in recent matches, once again returning to their usual pragmatic hockey with an emphasis on defense. The match against Spartak speaks eloquently about this, where the best attack of the League was able to hit the goal of the army team only once. Dynamo are unstable, they are quite capable of giving a number of outstanding matches, but they are just as capable of failing in a single game. Our prediction is CSKA victory in regular time with odds of 2.28.
