Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Dynamo Moscow vs Salavat Yulaev

Dynamo Moscow

Alexey Kudashov's team can definitely take credit for their performance in the regular season. A fairly even performance, without serious downturns, leaves the blue and white in the fight for the championship until the last matches of the regular championship. Dynamo is in second place in the Western Conference standings, behind only SKA St. Petersburg. The teams are separated by three points, while the blue and white played one less match, so the gap in terms of lost points is minimal. Dynamo will not fall below fourth place, so the blue and white will definitely start the first round of the playoffs on home ice.

If you analyze the results of recent matches, then you should pay attention to Dynamo’s excellent playing form. In the last six matches, Dynamo have not left the ice without scoring points, having won five victories in these games and once losing in a shootout to Yaroslavl Lokomotiv. Dynamo won the last two games with the same score 2-1; in Yekaterinburg they beat local Avtomobilist with the same score, and then at home against teammates from Minsk. Among personnel problems, it is worth paying attention to the injury of Cedric Paquette, due to which one of Dynamo’s most productive forwards was out until the beginning of March.

Salavat Yulaev

The Ufa team's situation at the end of the regular season is in many ways similar to the situation of their opponents in the upcoming match. Like Dynamo, Salavat Yulaev continues to fight for the championship in his conference, while being slightly inferior to his competitors. In the East, the duo of Avangard and Metallurg are in the lead, scoring 87 and 86 points, respectively. The Ufa team currently has 85 points, but Viktor Kozlov’s team has one more game in hand, so Salavat Yulaev is quite capable of intervening in the championship showdown in the East. The calendar of remaining matches also plays into the hands of the Ufa team; after the game in Moscow, the team returns home, where they will play the remaining three games of the regular season.

In February, Salavat Yulaev played five matches, scoring three wins and two defeats. It is curious that both defeats came in games against St. Petersburg SKA, to which the Ufa team lost first at home 3-4, and then away 0-2. All February victories came in home matches, in turn they beat CSKA 2-0, Ak Bars 2-1 and defeated Omsk Avangard 7-2.

Game Totals Prediction

Salavat Yulaev goes to Moscow without three main forwards (Kulemin, Pustozerova, Leivo), which significantly reduces the attacking potential of the Ufa club. The team has already played a goalless match in St. Petersburg, losing 0-2 to local SKA. It won't be any easier in Moscow; Dynamo have gained an excellent momentum, winning match after match. Our prediction is Dynamo's victory in regular time with odds of 2.16.
