Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Slavutych-Arena will host Thursday’s Europa League game between Zorya Luhansk and Leicester City. The Ukrainians have been in a splendid form of late, with the team rolling over AEK Athens (3-0) in the Europa League, while crushing Minaj with the team outcome in the national championship. Zorya are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Leicester City, but seeing that they have slim chances of booking their place in the knockout stages, home win should not be considered.
The Foxes, on the other hand, showed character in a 3-3 draw with Braga, with Jamie Vardy scoring the equalizer in the dying minutes of the game. Leicester City aim to retain top position in the standings, and seeing that Brendan Rodgers usually counts on key players for the Europa League games, away win should be considered. The likes of Ndidi, Soyuncu, and Ndidi remain in the recovery room for the Premier League side.

Speaking of his achievements at the club level, Mykyta Shevchenko won the Ukraine Premier League with Shaktar Donetsk on three occasions (2012/13, 2016/17, 2017/18). Mykyta’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Zorya Luhansk should expire in June, 2021.
