The Premier League clash at CSC Nika on Monday will see home side Oleksandria ready themselves for the visit of Rukh Lviv.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Oleksandria v Rukh Lviv are shown on this page (inc. the best betting odds).
Oleksandria will be hoping for a better result following a 4-1 Premier League loss in their previous game against Zorya Luhansk.
In that game, Oleksandria had 40% possession and 6 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Oleksandria was Serhiy Rybalka (78'). For their opponents, Zorya Luhansk got 13 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Bohdan Butko (62', 70'), Serhiy Buletsa (68') and Denys Antyukh (75') scored for Zorya Luhansk.
It’s been seldom in recent times where Oleksandria have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Oleksandria have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 12 goals during that time.
Last time out, Rukh Lviv drew 1-1 in the Premier League match with Mynai.
In that match, Rukh Lviv managed 56% possession and 12 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Mynai had 7 shots at goal with 3 on target.
Over the course of their last half-dozen clashes, Rukh Lviv have bagged the sum of 8 goals. Rukh Lviv have also managed to score in every single one of those games. Over that period, they have seen 8 goals scored by their opponents. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.
Head to head
The previous league meeting featuring these clubs was Premier League match day 13 on 31/10/2021 which finished with the scoreline of Rukh Lviv 0-0 Oleksandria.

For their opponents, Oleksandria got 7 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
Team News: Oleksandria
Bogdan Biloshevskyi (Unknown Injury) and Vladyslav Kalitvintsev (Unknown Injury) will not be able to play for Oleksandria gaffer Volodymyr Sharan.
Team News: Rukh Lviv
Due to a mostly available squad, there is only the lone fitness worry for the Rukh Lviv manager to be concerned with. Vitaliy Roman (Nose Injury) misses out for this game.
In our view, Rukh Lviv certainly have the ability to break down this Oleksandria team, but that possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We are anticipating both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Oleksandria after 90 minutes. It really should be an interesting one.
