Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Vorskla Poltava v Dynamo Kyiv - plus the latest match odds.
Vorskla Poltava will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 3-0 Premier League defeat last time out to Kolos Kovalivka.
It has been seldom in recent times that Vorskla Poltava have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Zeleno-Bili have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals along the way.
Their past results show that Vorskla Poltava:
- haven't beaten Dynamo Kyiv in their previous 10 league matches.
- have not been beaten in their last 2 home league matches.
Dynamo Kyiv will go into the clash after a 5-0 Premier League win with the defeat of Inhulets Petrove in their most recent game.
A succession of outstanding showings from the Dynamo Kyiv defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their previous 6 outings combined. In that period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 13. Having said that, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend will persist in this next game.
Leading up to this clash, Dynamo Kyiv:
- remain undefeated by Vorskla Poltava when having played them away from home in the previous 8 matches in the league. An fantastic away run.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 11 away league matches. What a good run they have put together.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head results going back to 29/04/2018 tells us that these fixtures have been pretty painful for Vorskla Poltava. They’ve not been able to get themselves any victories whatsoever while Dynamo Kyiv have remained in the ascendancy, getting wins in 100 per cent of those ties.
A sum of 13 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 1 of them for Zeleno-Bili and 12 belonging to Bilo-Syni. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.17.
Team News: Vorskla Poltava
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Vorskla Poltava manager Yuriy Maksymov to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Georgiy Tsitaishvili (Fractured Leg) misses out.
Team News: Dynamo Kyiv
Dy. Kyiv manager Mircea Lucescu has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Volodymyr Kostevych (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Sergiy Sydorchuk (Unknown Injury), Mykyta Burda (Achilles tendon surgery), Benjamin Verbic (Knee Injury) and Ruslan Neshcheret (Shoulder Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
Our assessment is that Vorskla Poltava have it within them to get a goal against this Dynamo Kyiv lineup, but one goal probably won’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our tip is for a close game with a 1-2 winning score for Dynamo Kyiv at full-time. There looks to be little in this one.
