The well-known hockey journalist Pavel Lysenkov gave a forecast for the KHL regular championship match in which Lokomotiv and CSKA will play. Stake: CSKA’s victory in regulation time in 2.24. 3: 1 with Spartak, but conceded three goals in a row and lost 3: 4. Curiously, before that Lokomotiv performed well and won four wins in a row. CSKA scored a very decent move in the last three games. Defeated SKA in St. Petersburg (3: 2 OT), which is difficult in itself. He did not just take points from the outsiders, but crushed them, and he often let the youth out on the ice – 6: 1 with Neftekhimik, 7: 1 with Dinamo Riga. CSKA is even ahead of Ak Bars in points lost (69 with 44 games) (70 for 45). And believe me, in the office of the “army team” they closely follow who is in first place in the KHL table. But to do this, you need to defeat Lokomotiv (61 vs 44), which, if it wins, can join the fight for first place in the West and for a good seed in the playoffs. How did these teams play against each other before? November 16 – CSKA defeated Lokomotiv at home (3: 1). December 12 – CSKA defeated Lokomotiv again at home (3: 2). In this match I would have taken odds of 2.24 for CSKA to win in regulation time. I would like, of course, to flirt with the odds for a draw in regulation time (3.96), but I will not do that – there is too much risk. Although overtime in such a match is quite possible. But last season, CSKA won 3-0 and 4-0 in Yaroslavl. In general, Lokomotiv last beat the army team on January 22, 2019 (2: 1), that is, two years ago. Well this is just a note to you, ”said Lysenkov.
