On Monday, November 14, in the match of the 13th round, Rukh at the Arena Lviv will host Minay, which they have never lost to before in the UPL.
In the last round, the Rukhites suffered their first defeat in the Lviv derba from fellow countrymen from Lvov. This time, Rukh will meet with geographical neighbors, which are also headed by Vladimir Sharan, a student of Lviv football.
The “Yellow-Blacks” in the UPL concede goals at home during a club-record 6 games (9 goals) and will seek to interrupt this series on Monday. As for the personnel problems of Rukh head coach Leonid Kuchuk, Bogdan Boychuk, who was sent off in the last round, will miss the game.
“Minaj” did not score points in the previous three matches of the championship and will strive to complete this streak at the “Arena Lviv”. In addition, if Vladimir Sharan’s wards win, they will overtake Rukh in the standings. By the way, in the current championship, Minai scored more points away – 7, than at home – 2.
Minai’s goalkeeper Oleksandr Bandura is getting ready for the game with a special mood.
Previously, Rukh played three matches with Minay in the UPL and never lost: a victory and two draws. The previous home match between the “yellow-blacks” and the Transcarpathians took place on October 24, 2021 and ended in a fighting draw – 2:2, and the Rukhites equalized the score twice during the match. Rustam Akhmedzade and Dmitry Bilonog scored against the guests, Fabricio Alvarenga and Yuri Klimchuk scored against the hosts.
One of the most experienced Ukrainian referees, Nikolay Balakin (Kyiv region), who will play the 70th anniversary match in the UPL, has been appointed referee of the match. Previously, “Minaj” under Balakin played two games in the championships and has not yet lost – one victory and a draw. Rukh, with this referee, will play the third game in the UPL, and did not score points in previous matches.
Forecast for confrontation
“Minaj” on the fields of rivals does not gain points for three matches in a row. “Rukh” after the defeat in the Lviv derby will try to rehabilitate. In the upcoming meeting, we predict a minimal victory for the Rukhites.
