This is KHL match between Dinamo Minsk and Lada Togliatti.
I don't think that Minsk should be set as this favourites and I don't think that home field advantage should influence in this game in a big way like bookies are predicting.
Firstly, Lada is just a better club in general and quality and their first line is a lot better by my opinion. There are some well known names in Lada's lineups and their first line consists of well known center attacker Novotny who has huge experience playing in KHL and in defense they got great defender Genoway who has experience playing in NHL, AHL and most recently KHL but mostly in Western Conference Clubs.
Lada may be in awful streak lately but keep in mind that they played against best clubs in KHL and in fact they were holding up pretty good against best club in KHL (SKA) until last third and their double 2 minute penalty from which they conceded two goals.
Minsk has a great goalie Enroth but apart from that they don't have a lot of good players and I personally think that Lada invested a lot more in their players and surely that will show this season. Standings on the table are pretty similiar and they have same amount of points but Lada played against a lot better opponents and surely they will start winning pretty soon.
