Today are played several matches in the internal championships of the European hockey: Austria, Finland, Norway, Germany, Sweden and the powerful KHL from Russia. We have chosen tips from the three championships and we hope them to be pretty inspired.
Our tip suggestions
Stjernen – Frisk Asker >>> Frisk Asker +0.5 (full time)
Tonight will be played the match from Fredrikstad, one of the most balanced matches from the Norwegian round, Stjernen receiving the visit in Stjernehallen of Frisk Asker. The hosts have a pretty small arena with only 2.400 places and this way the fans’ support is quite considerable. We do not believe the guests will lose and this is because the are in an excellent shape, four victories in a row. In the last two stages, Frisk Asker defeated Manglerud and Lillehammer without receiving any goals, 5-0 and 3-0. In the only direct meeting of this season, Frisk Asker clearly won with the score of 5-1. An important fact regarding the statistics is that the victory with the score of 5-1 was the only one in the last 13 matches in which the hosts manage to win in full time. In the last five matches in Stjernehallen, the guests from Frisk Asker managed to win every time, clear victories.

Espoo – Karpat >>> Espoo +0.5 (full time)
Karpat come from five consecutive victories from which three in full time and two in extra time, but we do not believe that this series will hold any longer, especially that Espoo come after two important victories that were also a little shocking. The hosts have won two stages ago at Hameenlinna and in the last stage they have won with 2-0 at home against those from Jyvaskyla, one of the main favorites for winning the championship. Karpat are currently sat on the fourth place, at a tie of points with Hameenlinna, but who have two less played matches, at two points margin from Jyvaskyla, the team with a match remaining. The only direct match of this season was balanced, Karpat managing to win at home with the only score of 5-4. Despite the low ranking, Espoo are a team that plays quite good on their own arena, Barona Areena, where 6.000-7.000 fans create a sensational atmosphere. Espoo have only lost two matches from the seven ones played this season at home, while Karpat haven’t won in full time in only ten matches played away.

HC Bolzano – Salzburg >>> Over 5.5 goals
The only match of the day from Austria will be played tonight between HC Bolzano and Salzburg. We expect a duel with many matches, just as we have gotten used to see in the Austrian championship during the last seasons. Salzburg are currently sat in the second place of the rank and have one of the strongest attack line from the champiosnhip, with 69 goals scored in 16 matches, which represents an average of 4.31 goals per match. The statistics say that in the matches of Salzburg there is an average of 6.62 goals scored. In the first leg, Salzburg won with only 4-1, but this time we believe there will be more goals scored, Bolzano playing at home and being unable to win. They will be forced to attack and they practice a more offensive hockey game than they show in away matches and we believe the final result will be an over. I four of the last six direct matches there were scored over 5.5 goals.
