Minai form and stats

Overall Premier League stats at home this season for Minai are 1-1-2 (wins-draw-losses).

Minai are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 208 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by A. Shynder).

Minai lost their last game at Desna (placed 4th) after a 0-1 scoreline. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 0-0 versus Rukh Vynnyky.

Some supporters pointed their nail-bitten fingers at Anatoli Nuriev for missing a penalty kick versus Desna in the 6th minute. It's possible that a goal in that situation would have changed the outcome.

Minai have scored 1 goal here in 4 league matches, a depressing statistic. On the other hand, Minai have conceded 5 goals.
