On Saturday, September 19, three matches will be held in the Kontinental Hockey League. The game between Beijing Kunlun and Ufa Salavat Yulaev, which will be held at the Mytishchi arena, will open the game day.
Kunlun due to health reasons (coronavirus) is forced to hold home matches in Mytishchi. But this factor is unlikely to have influenced the fact that the team has not yet obtained a single point in the regular season. Six games have already been played, and only in two of them, there was a real chance to succeed: with Metallurg (1-2) and Sibir (4-5). In the last match, Igor Ulanov’s squad hosted Avtomobilist and predictably lost with a score of 2-5.
Salavat Yulaev is very serious this season. The Ufa club, as always, is full of Finnish players. Now the new coach Tomi Lamsa is also from Finland. So far, this is justified – the team is in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference and shows a decent level of hockey. In the last match, Salavat Yulaev paid a visit to Kazan Ak Bars and lost to them with the score of 1-4.
Kunlun Redstar vs Salavat Yulayev Prediction
Most likely there won’t be any competition in this game, since Salavat needs to rehabilitate after a recent failure, and Kunlun will not be able to hold back their attack. Our bet is Salavat Yulayev to win in this match. We also suggest betting on the small match totals.
