The next game day of the new KHL season will give us a bright confrontation, " Kunlun RS "will go to visit"Salavat Yulaev". The game will be held on September 16 at 17: 00 Moscow time at the Ufa Arena. Our portal has prepared a forecast for the outcome of this confrontation for you.
In the off-season, Salavat Yulaev was engaged in strengthening the depth of the squad, but lost several of its veterans. They were replaced by both young promising and more experienced players, but whether the team became stronger from this is a big question. Ufa players made a solid start in the championship, giving out three victories in the not-so-simple away series, where the opponents were "Avtomobilist", "Barys"and " Metallurg". The team continued its successful performances in its arena, beating Spartak and Neftekhimik. At the same time, the bright attacking hockey performed by Ufa falls in love with the fans and gives the team hopes for fighting for the long-awaited trophy.
In recent years, the Chinese team has become an outright outsider of the league and a gathering place for young players and downed pilots. The mess in the administrative apparatus and the signing of incomprehensible legionnaires do not allow growth and progress. The team did not start in the best way, having obtained only two victories in the new season, and in its last game it lost 1:5 to Avtomobilist at home without a chance.
Injuries and disqualifications:
"Salavat Yulaev" - Sannikov (injury unknown).
"Kunlun RS" - Joe (groin injury).
Statistics and figures:
- The last match between these teams ended with the victory of "Salavat Yulaev" 5: 4.
- "Salavat Yulaev" has an excellent series of five consecutive victories.
- Kunlun RS has won only twice in its last five meetings.
The clear favorite in this game looks like "Salavat Yulaev", who started the season quite cheerfully and is now in good shape. The guests do not have stability and reliability in defense, because they miss a lot and rarely win. I think the hosts will take an easy victory here.
