Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Dynamo Moscow vs Ak Bars

Dynamo Moscow

The blue and white became one of the teams in the League, who clearly benefited from the pause in the championship. After an outright failed October, when Alexei Kudashov's wards lost 8 out of 13 matches played, Dynamo added noticeably, returning to the ranks of the leaders. An important role was played by the changed information background around the team. At some point, there was a surge in rumors about a possible sale of Dynamo stars, which did not add optimism to the hockey players. Now all conversations have subsided and the team's game has returned to the previous stability, which allowed the blue-white to be at the top of the standings at the start of the championship.

Now Dynamo again demonstrate high-quality hockey, backed up by victorious results. The team has six victories in a row, including over such rivals as Avangard 3-1, Jokerit 3-1, CSKA 3-2, Salavat Yulaev 3-1 and Traktor 7-6. Dynamo currently have 44 points and are currently runner-up in the Western Conference. Only two points separate the team from the leading Jokerit, so it is likely that the blue-and-blue will return to first place in the near future. The only alarming fact is the large number of injured hockey players. So, before the meeting with Ak Bars, there are 6 players in the club's infirmary at once (Kulbakov, Bryzgalov, Pedan, Pribylsky, Trineev, Fisenko).

Ak Bars

Kazan Ak Bars also performs according to a similar schedule after a pause in the championship. The only difference is that the Kazan team still has one defeat. In the home game against SKA St. Petersburg, it came to overtime, where luck was on the side of the away team, which won 4-3. Of the positive aspects in Ak Bars's game, it is worth noting a better game in attack. If before the pause in the championship the team's average performance fluctuated around two goals scored per game, now this figure is close to three goals. Although here it is worth making a footnote to the calendar - at this stage of the championship, apart from SKA, the Barsov had no level rivals.

If we consider the tournament position in the Eastern Conference, then here Ak Bars leads the race for two breakaway leaders - Magnitogorsk Metallurg and Chelyabinsk Tractor. The task is difficult, Ak Bars has 45 points, while the duo of leaders has already gained 53 points. Like Dynamo, Ak Bars also has an acute problem with injured hockey players. Burmistrov, Kovalenko, Lindholm, Safronov will not help the team in the next matches, so Dmitry Kvartalnov will once again have to change the lineup.

Dynamo Moscow vs Ak Bars


In mid-October, the teams already met in Kazan, delighting the fans with an effective game. The swing game, where 3-1 after the first period in favor of the Barsov turned into 3-4 already at the end of the second twenty minutes, has come to overtime. In the extra five minutes, everything was decided by the abandoned puck of the young Dynamo talent Dmitry Rashevsky, who issued the victory of his club with a score of 5-4. This victory for Dynamo became only the third in the last 10 meetings between these rivals, and on home ice the blue-white did not beat Ak Bars since 2017.

Game Totals Prediction

The last head-to-head match of these rivals, which presented the fans with 9 goals, was rather an exception to the rule. Ak Bars on the road in most matches prefers to act strictly as number two, with a noticeable emphasis on defensive actions. In the last 10 away matches with the participation of Ak Bars, more than 5 goals were scored only once, in other cases the games were "grassroots". Our forecast is Total Under (5.5) with a coefficient of 1.55.
