On Friday, the 8th round of the Ukrainian Premier League starts in Chernihiv, where the local " Desna "will host the Lviv"Rukh". We offer you a forecast for this meeting.


According to the results of four rounds of the UPL, the Desnyans showed off as the sole leader of the championship, but after that everything went badly for the team of Alexander Ryabokon. Chernihiv lost twice in a row with a score of 0: 4, and if the away fiasco with Dynamo could be explained, then the home flight to Veres shocked many. After the international break, Desna played a draw on the road with Vorskla (2: 2).


For Rukh, the main task is to maintain a residence permit in the Premier League, and the Lviv team is still coping with this, keeping in the middle of the standings. In the last five rounds, the yellow-blacks have lost only once, losing away to Dnipro-1 (0: 2). After that, they beat the Lions on their own field in the derby (1: 0). And in the last round, we almost defeated Zarya (1:1) in our native walls.

"Rukh" is not afraid to play aggressively, and largely due to this, it regularly scores points. Given the considerable problems of "Desna" in defense, the Lviv team is quite capable of scoring here, and even more than one goal. But Chernihiv residents themselves can also be very dangerous ahead, so it is difficult to predict the outcome of this meeting.
