Chornomorets form and stats

With 1 Premier League win, 1 draw and 4 defeats from their home games, Chornomorets are certainly not brimming with confidence.

Defensively the home team are doing well, with their goalkeeper Dmytro Nepogodov not having conceded a league goal in 180 minutes.

Chornomorets's previous game was also played at home, ending 2-0 versus Lviv (placed 15th). The home side are looking to build on that result.

In the preceding match a 1-0 victory visiting Minai.

This is expected to be a close game, with Chornomorets perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Chornomorets as a small favourite), we find 7 games. Chornomorets has won 2 of these, drawn 3 and lost 2.

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for Chornomorets here at Stadion Chornomorets in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (4 from 6 games). Chornomorets have conceded 11 from these games.

Metal Kharkiv form and stats

Playing away, Metal Kharkiv have won 3 games, drawn 1 and suffered 3 defeats in the Premier League this season. Kharkiv has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Metal Kharkiv aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 286 league minutes without a goal. Panasenko was the last player to find the net.

It might be tough going out on the road again for Metal Kharkiv, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 0-1 versus Minai (placed 11th).

A loss against Hirnyk was the result prior to that, in a home game.

Metal Kharkiv find the net regularly in their away games. 10 goals from 7 away fixtures in the league. 9 goals have been conceded by Kharkiv in these games.

The Ukrainian Premier League is the highest division of football in Ukraine. It was created in 1991 as Ukraine declared independence from the Soviet Union. Twelve teams play each other twice in a 22 match regular season to create a league table. The table then splits in half resulting in a Championship round and a Relegation round, each playing ten more fixtures.
