Salavat Yulaev - Sibir: who will score points? Forecast for KHL regular season match
UFA, 18 September 2018. /Bashinform News Agency, Natalia Ovcharuk/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
On September 18, the Ufa Salavat Yulaev will play a second to last game of the first home series of the 11th season of the KHL. The Nikolai Tsulygin’s players will meet with HC Sibir on the ice of "Ufa-Arena".
The Ufa team won only one home game of the current season: the Torpedo club from Nizhny Novgorod was defeated — 4: 3. Then Salavat Yulaev suffered two losses in a row: Ak Bars (4: 5) and Neftekhimik (1:3).
The Novosibirsk ice squad in this season is experiencing problems: the club lost all seven matches. The team has already replaced the head coach, but hockey experts assure that this will not help either.
Bookmakers believe that the today's meeting may be sensational. Sibir is not in its best form, however, and HC Salavat Yulaev also slowed down.
The match starts in the capital of Bashkiria at 7 p.m., local time. The live broadcast will be conducted by BST and KHL TV.
