Salavat Yulaev will fight again with HC Avangard Omsk


UFA, 24 December 2014. /Bashinform News Agency, Dmitry Slezin/. On Wednesday, December 24, HC Salavat Yulaev (Ufa) will hold the last match in the Olympic year and the first — without its general manager Oleg Gross, which has recently left the team.

The Ufa players will meet with one of the leaders of the season, to which they have already lost three games in this championship — Avangard (Omsk).

The former defender of such clubs as SKA, CSKA, Neftekhimik, Sibir, Tractor, Amur, Metallurg and the national team of Ukraine Artem Ostroushko gave his forecast for this match:

“Matches between Ufa and Omsk teams always raise an increased interest among fans. Most often the teams meet these expectations. This is not surprising, because the teams are competing for the top positions in the KHL.

Probably in the upcoming match a duel of goalkeepers will be decisive. Both teams have enough masters to score a goal. I think that the match will be resultative. My prediction is the victory of Avangard with a score of 5:3”, the expert said.

The match kicks-off at "Ufa-Arena" at 19.00, broadcast by the BST TV channel.
