Olimpik Donetsk won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 2-1 Premier League defeat in their last game at the hands of Zorya Luhansk.
Olimpik Donetsk have really struggled up front in recent times. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 versus opposition teams over their previous 6 matches. In those meetings, Olimpik have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 12. Having said that, we must now wait to see whether that trend might be maintained in this next match or not.
Their prior results show that Olimpik Donetsk:
- have not registered a win against Zorya Luhansk in their previous 6 matches in the league.
- have not won at home in their last 4 league matches. That's never good.
Viktor Skrypnyk's Zorya Luhansk have had reason to celebrate scoring 8 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The aggregate of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes adds up to 8.
Heading into this contest, Zorya Luhansk haven't been defeated by Olimpik Donetsk when having played them away from home in the previous 6 league games. A solid away record against them.

Team News: Olimpik Donetsk
Looking at personnel, there is just a single fitness concern for the Olimpik Donetsk boss Ihor Klymovskyi to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Yevgen Tsymbalyuk (Fractured Leg) is sidelined.
Team News: Zorya Luhansk
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, Zorya Luhansk manager Viktor Skrypnyk does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
In our opinion, Olimpik Donetsk will manage to breach the defence of this Zorya Luhansk outfit, although one goal may not be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re going for a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for Zorya Luhansk at the end of this one. Expecting it to be very competitive.
