Our prediction for this Ukraine Premier League match:
Shakhtar Donetsk ruined Dynamo Kiev’s title hopes at the weekend, and Oleksiy Mykhaylychenko’s troops are now on a quest to book their place in the Champions League. Dinamo Kiev are sitting in the second position ahead of the visit of Oleksandria, but Desna are breathing down their neck. The capital club have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Oleksandria, who are eyeing a place in European competitions as well.
Dmytro Grechyshkin’s late penalty helped Oleksandria pick up all three points from the Zorya game, but Dynamo Kiev are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. There will be no spectators at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
