The red and whites have changed a lot since Alexei Zhamnov took charge of them. The coach, who gained experience working with the Russian national team, was able to form a great team that occupies fifth place in the Western Conference standings. In attack, Spartak has no equal in the entire league. The Gladiators scored 45 goals, but in defense they performed poorly: they lost 40 goals.
Zhamnov made such progress on offense thanks to his summer acquisitions. The leaders of the red-and-white attack are newcomers: they are among the 15 best scorers in the KHL. Ivan Morozov came out of the AHL and has already scored 12 (3+9) points through the goal+pass system. Pavel Poryadin passed from Neftekhimik: he has 13 (5 + 8) points. Nikolai Goldobin, who previously played for Metallurg, scored 17 (9+8) points.
Spartak has only lost two games in a row this season, but they were Moscow derbies, which are considered unpredictable. It is true that after a vigorous start, the red and white team slowed down a bit. In the last match they lost to Traktor, who came up with a way to stop the powerful attack of the Muscovites.
Zhamnov’s team led 1:0 almost until the middle of the third period, but gave way in the ninth minute. Then the Chelyabinsk team scored the winning goal in extra time. By the way, in the third half Spartak scored a goal, but Traktor requested a video review, after which it was canceled. Could this affect the psychology of hockey players? Easily!

Recently, Morozov was asked what the secret was to his trio with Poryadin and Goldobin. He explained that they communicate a lot even off the ice, they understand each other and complement each other well. Ivan noticed that Nikolai has an excellent throw and Pavel is very fast. According to the former AHL hockey player, they try to play an aerial game and, through quick passes, overcome their opponents’ traps.
Lokomotiv cannot boast of such a performance, but they are higher in the table than the Gladiators. The Yaroslavl team is in second place, just one point behind the first. This season the team played 12 games, scored 33 goals and only lost 21. In the Western Conference, only SKA plays better defensively: they lost 18 goals.
It is worth noting right away that railway workers perform excellently on the road. They won all four away games: Kunlun (4-0), CSKA (2-1), Dynamo Minsk (4-1) and Severstal (5-0). It is surprising how reliably Lokomotiv played in these matches in defense, conceding only two goals in total, but scoring 15. Incredible!
Last time the railways lost to the army team at home with 1:2. After this failure, the team won three games in a row and plans to extend the streak. During this period they defeated Metallurg (4-1), Avtomobilist (3-1) and Severstal (5-0). After the meeting with the steelworkers, Nikitin praised the team. He highlighted the dedication of his players and the work of the goalkeeper, which he cleaned up in time.
In terms of attacking level, Severstal is similar in some ways to Spartak: they also like to play aggressively up front. If Lokomotiv managed to contain him, perhaps they can control the productive red and white forward trio. Furthermore, if Traktor managed to stop them, the Yaroslavl team will be even more capable of doing so. We offer a bet on the guests’ victory for 2.50.
Prediction and bets for the match Spartak – Lokomotiv on October 2, 2023
Zhamnov can be proud of his front three, who always produce results. Poryadin, Goldobin and Morozov show high-level hockey, but Traktor recently managed to contain them. Lokomotiv played perfectly in the last four away games, scoring 15 goals and losing only two. The railroaders have an excellent defense that will be able to stop the powerful red and white attack, so it is worth betting on their victory for 2.50.
Tender: Lokomotiv victory in 2.50.
