Vanguard is in good shape now. The team has only suffered 2 regular-time defeats in their last 12 matches. They managed to beat the strong Salawat Yulayev, who had 2 defeats in a long time at the time. He beat Avtomobilist 3 times, which is the leader of the Eastern Conference. Well, there is a victory over Neftekhimik. Although we used to think of them as outsiders, Wolves are not bad at all now as they have suffered only 3 regular-time defeats since the end of December.

The metallurgist cannot boast of such successes at all. The team does not look like one that can repeat the success of last season. In the last 7 matches, 2 wins in regular time. Especially the latest games clearly show the problems of “foxes”. They gave way to the Admiral, who is inferior to the Metallurgist in every way. We managed to lose to Sochi, the worst team in the league. And the match against Salavat was not convincing, it would seem that he won. Until the last ten minutes, Metallurg was worse on the scoreboard, and Ufa’s team was more likely to lose than Metallurg showed strength in this match.
