Neftekhimik vs Severstal by Sors
Nizhnekamsk will conclude its three-game homestand on Tuesday night against Cherepovets.The hosts began December with two consecutive wins over Nizhny Novgorod (6-5 OT) and Sochi (5-1), but lost six of the next seven games and will try to avoid a season-high fifth consecutive loss and fourth at SCC Arena.
However, there is something that should be taken into account here: the hosts were limited to just two goals in their last three games at SCC Arena, but those three games were against three of the leading teams in the KHL (1-2 vs. Bars Kazan, 1-3 vs. CSKA Moscow and 0-4 vs. SKA St. Petersburg), while this team shows good efficiency in offense this season, scoring a total of 106 goals in the previous 44 rounds and three or more goals in ten of its last fifteen games.
At the same time, Nizhnekamsk continues to struggle in defense, as the hosts conceded a total of 122 goals in forty-four rounds and three or more goals in nine of their previous thirteen games at SCC Arena.
Cherepovets come into the game on the back of two straight wins and three in the last four games, following a ten-game losing streak in November and early December.In the matter of fact, more important for my bet is that Cherepovets’ offense shows signs of awakening lately, as the guests have scored three or more goals in every of their last four games against Lokomotiv Yaroslavl (3-2), Podolsk (3-4 OT and 4-2) and in Togliatti on Sunday (4-3).
I expect more than four goals in that game between the teams of Nizhnekamsk and Cherepovets.
