Avanhard form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Avanhard so far with only 3 points returning home. The records show 1-0-5 (win-draw-lose). With the Avanhard losing streak of four defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking.

There might be some fixture complaints from Avanhard as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Persha Liga match against Olimpik Donetsk (1-3).

Prior to that match, the Avanhard manager O. Gorodov faced defeat when travelling to VPK-Ahro Shevchenkivka and losing 0-1.

Avanhard have another match away in just four sleeps, a Persha Liga fixture versus Obolon'-Brovar. A hard calendar for the visitors!

There's been a serious shortage of goals from Avanhard's away games in the league this season with only 3 goals from 6 matches. Avanhard's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 9 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last four meetings: one - one - two (Hirnyk wins - draws - Avanhard wins). As for goals, one match ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), three had two or less.
