Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Salavat Yulaev vs Avtomobilist

Salavat Yulaev

Ufa residents are extremely uneven in the first part of the championship, giving out several ambiguous segments. Already in September, the team had a series of five defeats in seven starting matches, thereby rolling back to the very bottom of the standings. It seemed that the resignation of Viktor Kozlov was inevitable, the debut of the former striker in the coaching field was clearly not a success. However, already in the second half of September, the Ufimians began to add slowly, collecting points on a regular basis. By the beginning of November, Salavat was already confidently in the group of leaders in the Eastern Conference, along with Metallurg and Avtomobilist, taking a place in the top three.

Everything suddenly broke down in mid-November, and home series matches became problematic. It all started with a fiasco in a match with the Omsk Avangard, when the Ufa team lacked just a couple of minutes to win. Further - more, three more home defeats in a row, including from HC Sochi, by a wide margin of the worst team of the current championship. The troubles of Ufa continued on the road, 1-4 in the game against Barys and 1-2 against Metallurg. Thus, now Salavat has six defeats in a row and the team flew out of the top three, with 41 points scored, being in fifth place.


At some point, Avtomobilist and Salavat Yulaev were running parallel along the tournament distance, competing for leadership in the East. But if Ufa did not keep up with the set pace, then Avtomobilist is still good, together with Magnitogorsk Metallurg, playing an intermediate first place in the Eastern Conference. The enchanting ending of the match against Tractor helped the Avtomobilist to keep the lead, when the Urals, losing 0-2, managed to win back in the third period, and Ebert scored the second goal a second before the end of regular time. The denouement of the game came in the fourth minute of overtime, when an accurate shot by Jesse Blaker allowed Avtomobilist to win another strong-willed victory in the championship.

Thus, Avtomobilist retained a two-point advantage over Metallurg, gaining 48 points by this minute. The Urals have a great attack, where it is worth highlighting the striker of the German national team Brooks Maysek. Macek already has 38 points, which makes the striker the top scorer of the current season. The victory in Chelyabinsk was the seventh in a row for Avtomobilist, which once again speaks of the excellent game form of the Urals.
