Metalist 1925 Kharkiv
After a losing effort in their last game against Polissya Zhytomyr in Premier League competition, Metalist 1925 Kharkiv and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Dmytro Shastal (64') was the scorer for Polissya Zhytomyr.
The stats tell the story, and Metalist 1925 Kharkiv have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals overall. In defence, Metalist 1925 Kharkiv seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to follow through here, though.

Team News: Veres Rivne
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Veres Rivne manager Yuriy Virt to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Vitaliy Dakhnovskyi (Shoulder injury) is out of contention. Semen Vovchenko is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Metalist 1925 Kharkiv
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Metalist 1925 Kharkiv gaffer Edmar Halovskyi to be concerned with. Beka Vachiberadze (Bruised ribs) misses out for this game. Maksym Zhychykov cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’ve got the feeling that Metalist 1925 Kharkiv may find it difficult to register a score against this Veres Rivne side who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore tipping a 1-0 winning margin for Veres Rivne at the end of the match.
