Minai U21 form and stats

Minai U21's results here in the Youth League have been very modest with 1 victory, 1 draw and 5 defeats. We have seen two home losses in a row now for Minai, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

Olimpik Donetsk U21 form and stats

0-1-4 is the win-draw-loss statistic for Olimpik Donetsk U21 in their Youth League matches away. Olimpik are desperate to end a 27-game winless run, as they haven't won a game since the Desna U21 fixture. Travelling has not been lucrative for the away team as they have returned home without a win in 13 away games in a row.

As you can see from the result above, the defeat against Dynamo Kiev U21 was particularly ugly (0-6). The humiliation is still top of mind.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Olimpik as they have only managed to score 4 times from 5 away games in the league. The Olimpik Donetsk U21 defense is as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle, having conceded 26 goals in their away games.
