Kosice vs Zvolen by Sors
Kosice is one of the best-performing teams in the Slovak hockey league over the past decade (four titles in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014) and this season is not an exception, as the hosts have recorded eleven wins in the previous fifteen rounds (9-2-1-3 60/33), seven of them in eight games at Steel Arena (7-0-0-1 35/10).
However, there is one thing that should be taken into account here: Kosice’s defense is not as solid as during the previous few campaigns, as the hosts conceded three or more goals in seven of their previous fifteen games this season and at least two goals in ten of those fifteen encounters.
On the other hand, Kosice is the team with the second best attack in the league, as the hosts have scored a total of 60 goals until this moment (4.00 per game) and six or more goals in half of their previous eight games at Steel Arena.
Zloven comes from a 3-7 loss at home against Nitra on Friday, third consecutive for this team in the league after those against Martin on Oct. 14 (2-7/away) and Zilina on Oct. 16 (4-6/away).
The guests are experiencing obvious problems in defense in early season, conceding more goals compared with any other team in this league (58 goals) and four or more goals in four of their previous seven away games against Trencin (2-1), Nitra (2-6), Poprad (4-3), Liptovsky Mikulas (1-4), Nove Zamky (5-1), Martin (7-2) and Zilina (4-6).At the same time, they have scored at least three goals in five of their last six games.
I expect more than five goals in that game between the teams of Kosice and Zvolen.
