One of the game day’s matches in the KHL will be held on February 25 in Balashikha, where Avangard and Salavat Yulaev will play. Let’s find the best betting options by reviewing how these teams played so far this season.
The team played their last match on February 20 in Nizhny Novgorod. Avangard achieved a tough victory over Torpedo outside of regular time (3-2 OT). Before that, the Omsk team earned a confident win over Sibir on the road (3-0) and took one point in the away meeting against Barys (2-3 OT). Avangard holds the second line in the East standings, ahead of the closest rival by three points.
The Ufa club is in excellent shape. The winning streak of Salavat Yulaev reached eight matches in a row. These successes allowed Tom Lamsa’s squad to come close to Avangard. On February 23, the Ufa team went to Riga, where they calmly beat the local Dinamo (3-1). Before that, Salavat Yulaev, in the regular time, dealt with Kunlun (5-4), Ak Bars (3-2) and Amur (4-0).
Avangard – Salavat Yulayev prediction
In recent games, Salavat Yulaev showed a better play than Avangard. The Omsk team had no problems in the match against Sibir, while games with Barys and Torpedo went into OT.
We also note that the teams’ last meeting in Balashikha ended in favour of the guests. We believe that this trend should continue.
