Villach vs Vienna Capitals
A good game in Villach between two big Austria hockey clubs. Villach is fighting for the top-6 which would be a ticket for the playoffs. But Villach is struggling for weeks now and are 8th of the league. Last week they lost at Znojmo 1:3. They are 5 points behind the 6th place and just 5 games a left in the regular season before the qualification round (places 8 to 12 of the regular season) and the ranking round (places 1 to 6 of the regular season) start.
The Capitals are absolutely the best team in the league and they start their road trip in Villach. After this game they have difficult games at Salzburg and Klagenfurt. Therefore it's kind of a big week for the capitals in which they can show that they deserve the 1st place in the league. You could think because the Capitals will enter the ranking round in 1st place that they will relax in the next 5 rounds. But there is still a lot to earn. Firstly, Villach is the worst of the next three opponents. Salzburg and Klagenfurt are way more difficult to beat than Villach. Secondly, the Capitals could get the best point record in Austrian hockey history (Salzburg has the record with 91 points, the Capitals have 90 points right now). Thirdly, no team in history has reached 32 wins in the regular season. The Capitals have 31 wins right now and also could get this record tonight.
I think Villach will be fired up because they need the win desperately and they play against the league's best team which is always a motivation. But the Capitals are phenomenal this season and have a lot to earn tonight in terms of various records. Therefore I'll take Vienna Capitals in regulation.
