The UPL is one of the few leagues across the continent still committing to carrying out its fixtures this weekend and the next!
It’s Matchday 23 and the first Gameweek split between the Championship & Relegation Groups!
There’s already A LOT of DEJA VU from just last weekend as a number of sides meet again seven days later – albeit this time round there will NO SPECTATORS or MEDIA in attendance! This will continue for the next TWO Matchdays!
On Saturday, we have yet ANOTHER instalment of the least thrilling derby in football – as the two LVIV clubs go head to head yet again!
It was a predictable 0-0 last week with the Karpaty Ultras providing the only entertainment from the stands with a pyro display. You’d hate to think how this will play out without them…
In the second repeat fixture of the Gameweek, DNIPRO-1 host MARIUPOL!
Will revenge be on the cards for the Seagulls who saw three of their players sent off in last weeks game, condemning them to the bottom six?
Oleksandriya then host Kolos in a rerun of the calendar year opening fixture for the two sides!
Kolos came away with a shock last minute win from that which set them on their way to securing their TOP SIX berth!
ZORYA welcome Donbas neighbours SHAKHTAR to Zaporizhya as both sides fight for their respectable medal spots!
Shakhtar return from a hard fought win in the Europa League whilst Zorya took a setback losing to Desna last week…
Then it’s Dynamo’s turn to try and edge clear in second as they see Desna Chernihiv arrive at the empty Olympiyskyi!
Desna buoyed from their win v Zorya last week will be hoping to get another victory in Kyiv just as they did back in September!
Finally, to round MATCHDAY 23 off, Ukrainian Cup Semi Finalists Vorskla come to Kyiv to face Olimpik for the second time in a week!
The reverse fixture was played out in Poltava where VP won 1-0!
Vicente Gomez left as Olimpik Manager as a result – So Klymovskyi takes charge as interim once again!
NOTHING CAN STOP THE UPL?!
Coronavirus? What Coronavirus?…
