CSKA leads the series 2-0 after two wins in Moscow on Sunday (2-0) and Tuesday (3-2 OT), which puts Slovan Bratislava in a must-win situation.
Of course, CSKA Moscow is the major favorite for the title in the KHL this season and the Russian team excels Slovan Bratislava in terms of individual qualities of the players and experience, but I have several reasons to believe that the hosts are capable to take good result from that game.
At first place, this game will be played at Ondrej Nepela Arena in Bratislava, where the hosts will have huge support from their fans and where Slovan Bratislava won six of its last seven games against Dinamo Minsk (4-2), Nizhny Novgorod (3-0), Jokerit (4-2), Podolsk (4-2), Dynamo Moscow (3-4), Medvescak Zagreb (3-2) and Dinamo Riga (3-2 OT).
In addition to that, the hosts won twice against this opponent during the regular season (3-2 SO in Bratislava on Nov. 14 and 2-0 in Moscow on Nov. 19) and played well in the first two games of this series, especially on Tuesday, when they had two-goal advantage at the end of the second period.
Patrik Luza (defenceman / 1+2) is out due to injury, but he is unavailable since January, so his absence is not expected to be a big problem for the home team.CSKA Moscow will travel to Bratislava without Igor Ozhiganov (defenceman / 5+11) and Evgeny Korotkov (centre / 4+2).
I expect difficult game for CSKA Moscow in Bratislava.
