Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on CSKA vs Severstal


CSKA scored a good move before the pause in the championship, having managed to win three matches in a row. And if victories in matches with Avtomobilist 1-0 and Vityaz 6-5 were to some extent expected, then the game against team-mates from St. Petersburg was expected by CSKA fans with a certain anxiety. During the season, the St. Petersburg club strengthened itself with a number of high-class hockey players and approached the in-person meeting with CSKA as a favorite. Nevertheless, CSKA put the skeptics to shame with their game, beating the principal rival with a 4-0 win. Sergei Fedorov's wards played perfectly in unequal compositions, scoring three goals when playing in the majority. The hero of the meeting was Vladislav Kamenev, who started the season at SKA. On the account of the 25-year-old striker, two goals were scored in the first period, which became in many ways defining in this match.

After this victory, the capital's army team for the first time this season climbed into the top three in the West, having settled down to this minute in third place. Five points separate from the leading Jokerit of the wards of Sergei Fedorov, while several teams are pushing from below at once, so that a couple of unsuccessful matches can throw the army club into the middle of the standings.


Cherepovets Severstal is one of the teams breathing down the back of the army team. After the sixth place at the end of last season, Severstal was expected to at least repeat the result, and so far the forecasts are coming true. The distinctive team of Andrei Razin once again proves that money is not the main thing in sports and with a fairly limited budget it is quite possible to be competitive at the level of the best KHL teams. Severstal now has 34 points and is currently fifth in the Western Conference. The lag behind the army team is only one point, and in case of victory in the upcoming match, the rivals from Cherepovets will bypass a more titled opponent in the standings.

Now Severstal is producing the best segment in its recent history, having won nine victories in a row. Severstal suffered its last defeat a month ago, losing 1-2 in Yaroslavl to the local Lokomotiv. Since then, the team has only won, beating such top clubs as Salavat Yulaev 3-2, Avtomobilist 3-2 and Magnitogorsk Metallurg 5-2. Certain concerns before the visit to Moscow cause staffing problems. The national team at the Eurotour stage includes goalkeeper Shugaev, as well as forwards Guslistov and Vovchenko. Three base hockey players (defenders Khabarov, Khokhlov and forward Morozov) are on the list of injured players and will not help the team in the near future.

Despite the noticeable bias of quotes in favor of CSKA, not everything is so simple in this pair. CSKA are very uneven in the championship, experiencing problems in most of the matches played. Severstal, on the contrary, has seriously added in comparison with last season, beating the favorites quite regularly. Of the recent examples, a confident 5-2 victory over the best KHL team at the moment - Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Based on this, our prediction for the match is that Severstal will win with a handicap (+1.5) with a coefficient of 1.75.
