In one of the most modest matches of the game day of the regular season of the KHL, an interesting confrontation awaits us, Severstal will host Salavat Yulaev. The game will be held on September 21 at 19: 00 Moscow time at the Ice Palace in Cherepovets. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this game for you.
Severstal has become a pretty strong team in recent seasons, giving battle to every opponent, especially on their own site. During the off-season, the team's composition changed noticeably, some leaders left, but very high-quality performers were signed to replace them, among which Chmykov and Abrosimov should be singled out. Severstal did not start very well in the championship and is now on the last line of the Western conference. In the last match, the team lost without a chance on the road to Admiral 4: 1.
Ufa started solidly in the championship and now look like perhaps the most balanced team in the league. The first link of the team is now on fire and breaks up any opponent, but whether the hockey players will have enough strength and fuse for a long time is a big question. From the start, only the victories of "Salavat Yulaev, and all in the main time. In the last meeting, we managed to beat the strongest Minsk Dynamo 1-0 at home.

Salavat Yulaev looks like a clear favorite in this confrontation, the team has a stronger composition and usually performs successfully in Cherepovets. The hosts have a lot of young people, but it's too early for them to compete with the strongest teams in the league. I think everything will end with a victory for the guests .
