Olimpik Donetsk are the guests at their opponents’ ground on Thursday for the Premier League game with home team Rukh Lviv.
Our Rukh Lviv v Olimpik Donetsk predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Rukh Lviv, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 2-1 Premier League success against Oleksandria.
Their more recent scorelines reveal that much solidity has been shown by the Rukh Lviv backline. Rukh Lviv have been stingy, seeing the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their last six matches standing at 4. It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Coming into this fixture, Rukh Lviv are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Inhulets Petrove in Premier League action, Olimpik Donetsk and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The stats tell the story, and Olimpik Donetsk have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. In defence, Olimpik could really do with shoring things up.
Coming into this meeting, Olimpik Donetsk haven’t won away from home in the past 8 league matches. It's not a good run at all.
Team News: Rukh Lviv
Rukh Lviv boss will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Olimpik Donetsk
Olimpik boss Ihor Klymovskyi has to choose a team with limited availability. Ibrahim Kargbo Jr. (Tibia and Fibula Fracture) and Yevgen Tsymbalyuk (Fractured Leg) will not be playing here.
We’re of the opinion that Olimpik Donetsk may well find it hard to score goals against this Rukh Lviv outfit who we think should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for Rukh Lviv at the end of the match.
It should be a good one.
