First "green derby" in jubilee season of KHL: Salavat Yulaev versus Ak Bars
UFA, 22 November 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Natalia Ovcharuk/.
Fans of HC Salavat Yulaev have not seen ice hockey on "Ufa-Arena" for a month. The Bashkir club returned after a long away series with only two victories over Kunlun Red Star and Sochi. Today, on November 22, Salavat Yulaev will host the leader of the Eastern Conference of the KHL — the Kazan Ak Bars.
Bookmakers do not rush to bet on the upcoming 71st "green derby". Both opponents are able to score a lot. However, recently Ufa residents and guests from Tatarstan have problems with scoring. Note that Ak Bars came in the capital of Bashkiria after a hurtful defeat by Avangard (Omsk) in a shootout series.
The beginning of the match Salavat Yulaev — Ak Bars is at 19.00, Ufa time.
