Oleksandria form and stats

There's been little loot from Oleksandria's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 9 away games in the Premier League. Oleksandria only have 1 win to counter their 5 defeats and 3 draws.

The manager V. Sharan was unhappy after their last game, a Premier League match played at their home ground KSK Nika. Oleksandria suffered a 1-2 loss to Dynamo Kyiv (placed 1st). Prior to that match, the Oleksandria manager V. Sharan faced defeat when travelling to Inhulets and losing 0-1.
