The Premier League season is still fresh and sports bettors should be cautious. This meeting between Oleksandria and Vorskla promises to be an interesting one.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

Oleksandria form and stats

Oleksandria have only played one Premier League game here so far, a win. Last season their home statistics were 9 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats from 16 matches.

Oleksandria are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 0-1 away versus Minai. Before that, Oleksandria had a home game versus Mariupol which ended with a victory 4-1.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Oleksandria have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found six games) they have won three times, drawn one and lost two.

Early season league goal statistics from Oleksandria's 1 home game: 4 goals, 1 conceded.

Vorskla form and stats

Vorskla go into this game after a win, the home game against Inhulets that ended 2-0. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Dnipro-1 wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

Vorskla are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is zero wins, zero draws and two defeats. From a total of two matches.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: six wins for Oleksandria, one draw and three wins for Vorskla. Over 2,5 goals: six times; under 2,5 goals: four 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.
