For the “Dinamo” team led by Peter Skudra, this will be the first of two games on this field.
In the previous match, with a result of 2: 3, the Rigans suffered a loss in their field against Novosibirsk “Sibirj”.
Meanwhile, Sochi has failed in the last five games in a row, but has lost eight losses in the previous nine games.
The “Sochi” team “Dinamo” has already met twice this season, and the team of the Russian resort town has proved to be superior in both matches. In the first of these, “Sochi” was superior with 4: 2, but in the second they celebrated the success with 3: 1.
“Sochi” has so far been an awkward opponent for “Dinamo”. In the 10 games so far in the history of KHL, the Riga team has never managed to win in the regular time, the only two victories were gained in the extra time.
Riga “Dinamo” with 12 points accumulated in 27 games is the weakest team in the Western conference and in the whole league, but the 19 points earned by “Sochi” in 29 matches give the 10th position in the Western zone.
The next game will be played by Rigans on Monday, when they will meet “Vitjaz” from the Moscow region, represented by Kaspars Daugaviņš.
