Minai form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Premier League this season. Minai have only managed 1 win, 5 draws and 2 losses from their games here at Stadion Avanhard. The home team are struggling everywhere these days as they haven't won a league-game, regardless of being the home or the away team, in 14 attempts.

The spoils were shared in Minai's previous game, also at home. Visiting Kolos Kovalivka (placed 10th) travelled back with a draw after a 1-1 scoreline. Danylo Knysh was able to secure the draw 1-1 in the game against Kolos Kovalivka after coming on as a substitute and scoring the final goal. In the starting lineup today?

Preceding that game was the home draw versus Inhulets that ended 2-2.

Despite playing at their own arena the home team are massive underdogs in this game. The home fans will enjoy their drinks and snacks knowing that the chances of a positive outcome are very slim. When Minai have been in this position before, they have won zero, drawn one and lost one from two games. one defeat by at least two goals.

Minai are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 8 goals in 8 games. Minai's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 10 times.
