Khabarovsk Amur on September 16 will host a meeting with Riga Dinamo, and our experts will give a prediction for this contest. Will the Amur succeed this time? Let’s find out.
Amur started extremely unsuccessfully this season and has already suffered six defeats in a row, while not gaining a single point. The Khabarovsk team did not play four away matches in the optimal lineup, however, at the home arena in two games their main squad appeared on the ice. This did not have any positive effect on the play of Amur.
They first lost to CSKA with a score of 1-5, and then lost to the Moscow Dynamo (2-4). Khabarovsk players are experiencing significant problems in defence and, on average, concede more than three goals per game. Besides, Pavel Torgayev’s charges allow the opponent to make more than 40 shots per game, and, of course, the goalkeeper is not able to cope with such a load.
Rigans earned points in two matches in a row, although before that they also suffered two defeats. Let us remind you that the team managed to deal with Vityaz at home (4-3), and after that, they almost beat Sibir away, losing in overtime (3-4). By the way, Dinamo had a great chance to take two points in the confrontation with Sibir, as they were leading 3-0.
However, the squad of Peteris Skudra could not endure until the end and conceded two goals in a row in the last minutes in 5×6 format. Note that the team of Riga play on defence and use their chances well in counterattacks, so they may be able to prevail over Amur with such a plan.
Amur vs Dinamo Riga Prediction
Amur still looks very bad and cannot compete with any rival. The residents of Riga suffered a bad defeat in the last match, but at the same time, they gained points in two games in a row. We think that the guests will be able to take advantage of the weaknesses of the Khabarovsk defence and gain the upper hand in this confrontation.
