In Saturday evening's match of the 16th round of the Ukrainian Premier League, Dnipro Dnipro-1 will play at home with Vorskla Poltava. We bring to your attention the forecast for this match, which can be called the central one in the round.

Dnipro-1

Igor Yovichevich's team climbed to fourth place in the standings, and they are inferior to Vorskla only in terms of the difference between goals scored and conceded at the end of the first round. Before the November matches of the national teams, Dnipro-1 twice won dry - at home "Minay" (4:0) and away "Ingulets" (1:0). After the break, the Dnipro team won a strong-willed victory over "Alexandria" (3:1) in their native walls.

Vorskla

Yuri Maksimov's team in late October and early November gave out two winless home matches in a row in the championship, losing to Shakhtar (0:2) and drawing with Chernomorets (0:0). But before leaving for an international break, Poltava managed to sensationally get a victory over Dynamo (2:1). After a rest, Vorskla easily and naturally defeated Mariupol on its field (5:1).

Forecast

Dnipro-1 is very good on its field this season, but at the same time Vorskla has been playing well away lately. Both teams love and know how to play aggressively in attack, but in this meeting they are likely to act cautiously, being afraid of each other, at least in the first half. It is very difficult to assume that there will be no goals at all in this match.
