02 Oct 2017 | Věra Novotná

All fans of Champions Hockey League are on the edge because a number of sixteen matches is coming! On Tuesday 3rd October, there are thirteen duels scheduled and the next day there will be three more.


In every group there is something you cannot miss. Let´s look at group A in which Tappara are on the leading position with a six point lead. Wolfsburg, Salzburg and Banská Bystrica are waiting for the second place battle. Wolfsburg have the greatest chance, other two teams must win both of their upcoming games.

3EC Red Bull Salzburg41311:153
4HC´05 Banská Bystrica4138:133

The clash for the first place is going to be part of the show in group B. Kometa Brno have a certainty of the next round, but there are some teams, who also have a big chance to join the Czech team. Malmö need one point, but even if they do not achieve it, they will still have a chance in the next game-day. KalPa hope for failure of Malmö against Kometa, because any point made by Swedish team on Tuesday will mean KalPa´s elimination. It is clear, that Stavanger cannot reach the play-off, but they still can reach the third place.

All is open in the group C, because no team have been qualified to the next round yet. JYP Jyväskylä need only one point and EV Zug are also close. This group promises duels on all fronts.  Even another Czech team is close to the next round and battle for the first spot is coming also in group D. Třinec and Mannheim have nine points. Třinec need to win against Jönköping in regulation or in extra time.  Mannheim need one point against Esbjerg.

Växjö Lakers have their spot in the next round, but another battle is coming for the second position. Liberec have three points lead before HC Davos who are chasing them to take them off from the second place. All the Davos need to do is to collect five points in their two remaining games. Huge fighting matches are expected in the group F as well. Anybody can advance to the TOP16. Nottingham, currently defending the first place with two points lead, have the best position. But as we said, all is open for everybody from this group.

On the other hand between the teams belonging to the group G is everything decided. Munich and Brynäs have secured TOP16 and they are going to play for the first place. Completely different worries have in the last group team ZSC Lions. They can reach the qualification if they win in Klagenfurt in Tuesday´s game in sixty minutes. Zurich will rely on their power plays in which they have 50% success rate and are the best of all teams. And there is one more battle for Zurich. Fredrik Pettersson may take off Ryan Lasch, who is now the best scorer.
