Our Chornomorets Odessa v Polissya Zhytomyr predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Chornomorets Odessa will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 3-1 Premier League defeat last time out to Veres Rivne.
Roman Hryhorchuk's Chornomorets Odessa have scored a sum total of 9 times over their last 6 outings. Conversely, the number of goals that they have conceded in those same fixtures is 9.
Polissya Zhytomyr go into this match following on from a 2-0 Premier League win in the defeat of Obolon Kyiv in their previous outing.
In that match, Polissya Zhytomyr had 55% possession and 13 shots on goal with 2 on target. Obolon Kyiv had 5 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target.
A sequence of effective displays from the Polissya Zhytomyr defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their past 6 clashes overall. During the same period, their own attack force has managed to score 10. That pattern isn’t assured to follow through here, however.
Coming into this contest, Polissya Zhytomyr haven't been defeated in their previous 2 league matches away from home.
Team News: Chornomorets Odessa
The Chornomorets Odessa boss Roman Hryhorchuk has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match owing to a completely healthy group to choose from. Volodymyr Salyuk is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
In our view, The Sailors may well make use of the 4-3-3 system in the match, utilising V. D. Andriiovych, Illia Putria, Luka Gucek, Vitali Ermakov, Maksym Bragaru, Orest Kuzyk, Oleksandr Vasyliev, Jon Sporn, Andriy Shtohrin, Samson Iyede and Bogdan Boychuk.
Team News: Polissya Zhytomyr
Due to a fully injury-free group ready to go, the Polissya Zhytomyr manager has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.
We believe Polissya Zhytomyr might utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation by sending out Denys Boyko, Mykyta Kravchenko, Sergiy Chobotenko, Artem Shabanov, Artem Smolyakov, Borys Krushynskyi, V. Tankovskyi, Oleksandr Nazarenko, Arielson, Denys Yanakov and Pylyp Budkivsky.
We’re of the view that Polissya Zhytomyr and Chornomorets Odessa are both capable of scoring here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore seeing a very close game with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the match.
