After the disappointed pick yesterday we tried to predict a game between Slovan Bratislava and Mlada Boleslav to have in the game no more than 5 goals in regular time and we were wrong. Today we will concentrate on International Friendly Games as we all know it under the name - preseason games.
Today have a large selection of ice hockey game but we choose one of all of them to predict and make a preview. Slavia Prague will face the team of Plzen in a game from their preseason challenge. Both teams are from the Czech Republic, also, they play in Extraliga. The game will be held at O2 Arena in Prague. Both sides have played nineteen games between them and every other game is historic for them.
In an Extraliga, both teams showed an amazing performance and they did an effective game as well. But in this game, we hardly believe in they will keep their power and will try to practice and training their new players in this encounter. We are backing to Under 5 Goals in ordinary time with great quota 2.23 on Pinnacle Sport and we can afford to risk our amount on this market.
Today our tip is again from the Russian KHL, between the teams of Slovan Bratislava and Dinamo Minsk. Yesterday we predicted Sparta Prague to take victory undoubtedly versus the team of Mlada Boleslav, also, we were wrong as the game reached overtime and Mlada Boleslav beat his rival with one goal margin. We saw that the team of Sparta Prague did enforces errors and this gives a chance to Mlada Boleslav to score another one goal in their net.
Today we will try to focus on the goal market as to change our strategy. Against each other, both sides have played sixteen games between them as 11 of them are winning by Dinamo Minsk. Meanwhile, we see the odds for both sides are so matched in this give us more hope to wait for under 5 Goals in ordinary time. First three games of the season, the team of Dinamo Minsk showed poor and weak performance like their rival and they will struggle for victory.
The last two games from this competition we can see how much is ineffective in their game as the game was finished under 5 goals and this gives us more hope to wait for the same result in this encounter. Both sides have four losses in all competition and they will try to take victory this evening but this can happen extremely and difficult for both sides.
Yesterday we predicted a game between the teams of Dinamo St. Petersburg and Krasnoyarsk and we were right as the game was finished under 4.5 Goals. Also, today have plenty of International Friendly ice hockey games. Sparta Prague will host the team at Mlada Boleslav in a very interesting clash between these teams.
Against each other, both teams have 14 head to head games as 11 of these games have been wins of Sparta Prague. According to the bookmakers, the absolute favourite in this game is a team of Prague with great quota 1.90 odds on bet365. In the preseason, the visiting team didn’t show too much improvement in the previous games and will most definitely have difficulties tonight.
We want to change our tactic and our bet will be covering the final winner in this game. We are backing to Sparta Prague to take this game undoubtedly. The last seven games against each other, Sparta Prague beat his rival seven times in Extraliga, Czech Republic.
Our expectations for huge goals margin in the yesterday’s game didn’t fulfil, but we remain positive. Dinamo St. Petersburg will take on Krasnoyarsk in an amazing game this evening. Both teams continue with their preseason games and as we can see how much is effectively lately.
As we can see that both teams have just two meetings between them as everyone has taken one victory from their opponent from VHL. We expect St. Petersburg to be confident and do not concede goals in their net. Meanwhile, they are able to produce some washers in the rival net. The last International Friendly Game, Krasnoyarsk showed an amazing performance as they have scored three goals but after all, they lose the game against the team of Metallurg with three goals spread.
In this International Friendly game, we expect to see a poor and weak game as well. We are backing to Under 4.5 Goals in ordinary time as Pinnacle Sports gave us an attractive value for betting 1.87 odds.
The match with the Finns will be the third in the starting season for the players of Oleg Znarok. In the previous two they scored 11 goals and conceding only 3. In the opening match of the season CSKA defeated their team-mates from Moscow (4:2). They scored both in the majority and in the minority, totaling only 20 shots on goal. The rationality in the use of throws used by SKA players and in the match against Slovan (7:1). 7 out of 37 turned out to be effective. Twice the Army team realized excess, with 7 attempts provided by the opponent.
Meanwhile, for the team of Jokerit has their hero in the face of Yucca Jalonen. 18-year-old Eli Tolvanen was marked by a hat-trick and productive transfer in a duel against Dynamo Minsk (6:1). The starting match of the season turned out for the Jokers is not the most difficult because of the deletions in the hosts. Minsk residents retired 9 times and three times the punishment for it in the form of heads came.
We expect a very fast game and SKA will not lose for a third consecutive time from Jokerit. Therefore, our advice for this game is a home win by a handicap of 1.5 goals.
Our expectations for many goals in the yesterday’s game didn’t fulfil, but we remain positive. Tonight, Bars Kazan will take on Kunlun in a search for their first win of the season. With the transfer of Danis Zaripov, Kazan hoped for the return of the golden age of the team. But the best striker of last year's playoff was caught on doping, which forced the leadership of "Ak Bars" to hastily seek an alternative.
Strengthening in defense of Kazan got quality. Andrew Markov probably will not just be the leader of the first link, but also the main one in the microclimate of the locker room. From the first match, he will try to establish work in the directions entrusted to him, the more it is perfectly intertwined with the demand of the postulates of the head coach. Zinatullah Haydukovich will prefer to win 3 times 1:0, than once with a score of 5:0. So we are waiting for the hosts to win with a minimum of washers.
After our successful tip yesterday, we’re heading again for a game from the KHL. The hosts will hope to win their first game of the season, plus it’s a home game and a full arena will provide the team with the necessary spirit. Lada had great preseason and will hope to improve their performance from last season, where they were the second worst team in the Eastern Conference and the worst in Kharlamov Division.
Meanwhile, Tractor Chelyabinsk are the slight favorite in this clash, coming with the confidence of a top team. They’ve ended 4th in the Eastern Conference last season and will aim to build momentum. However, looking at their preseason results, they should definitely improve throughout the season. But for tonight’s game, we’re confident that both teams will produce a lot of goals and that’s our main pick for the clash.
Today our tip is again from the Russian KHL, between the teams of Ufa and Vladivostok. Salavat will open the season with a new coach from Finland - Erkki Westerlund. The biggest goal in front of the coach will be strengthening the defense line and actually that’s why they chose Westerlund. The hosts managed to finish 6th place last season, but now they have bigger ambitions and for that speaks their reinforced team. The most notable figures among the newcomers are the right-wing goalkeeper Ben Scrivens (ex-Dinamo Minsk), forward Joonas Kemppainen (ex-Siberia) and his colleague Dominik Kubalika.
Meanwhile, Vladivostok didn’t make any major changes to their team from last season. They ended up 7th in the Eastern Conference, just 2 points short from their rivals. Actually they even had more wins 24, while Ufa had 21, but the biggest difference was in the defeats - 25 to 20. In the preseason, the visiting team didn’t show too much improvement on the back and will most definitely have difficulties tonight. On the bright side, Vladivostok managed to keep their best forward Vladimir Tkachev
Traditionally, matches between these rivals take place in the effective struggle. But against the background of the announcement of course for a strong defense on both sides and the start of the season, it hardly makes sense to expect a total of more than 5 goals. So we will bet on the fact that Westerlund wards will play more reliably in the back, whose possession is also protected by an experienced goalkeeper who has received a high-quality practice in Minsk.
