Chernomorets – Shakhtar. Forecast and announcement for the match of the championship of Ukraine

The 19th round of the Ukrainian Premier League on the Black Sea coast in Odessa will close the local Chornomorets and Shakhtar Donetsk. The home team has only recently got out of the basement of the standings and, for sure, will not want to go back there again. As for the wards of Igor Jovichevich, for them now every remaining match is really worth its weight in gold, because the misfire of the leader can immediately be used by the pursuers.


What the fans of the Odessa club expected from Roman Grigorchuk at the very beginning of the season finally began to bear fruit at the junction of the first and second parts of the championship. Chornomorets successfully completed the past year and started the new one with a series of 4 matches in which they did not lose (2 wins and 2 draws). Thus, having scored 8 points during this period, the sailors have risen from the penultimate place in the standings by 12.

Now the main task of Chornomorets is to consolidate their success and try to get even further away from the relegation zone and transitional matches. But it will not be easy to do this, because there are mainly games ahead with teams that are located at the very top, and the first of them is Shakhtar.

However, Roman Grigorchuk has repeatedly proved that he knows how to prepare for matches with the leaders and take points from them. He managed to stabilize his main team, skillfully combining an alloy of experienced players with very young players. And here, as they say, Artur Avagimyan came to the court, returning to the Odessa club already during the spring part of the tournament from Alexandria.

And further. While there was a pause in the championship, Chornomorets played two control matches with teams from the Odessa region. Against the club of the second league “Real Pharma”, Roman Grigorchuk’s wards won 3:0, and against the winner of the winter championship of the region, the amateur team “Titan” with an even larger score of 7:1. It should be noted that Daniil Alefirenko scored four goals in the last game. By the way, it was this 22-year-old striker who scored in each of the three matches of the spring part of the Premier League and now, with 4 goals, is the top scorer of the Odessa team.


As for Shakhtar, after the winter break, the Pitmen won four matches in a row with a total score of 19:1 (taking into account another victory in December, their streak is five games) and secured their first place in the standings. Of course, they were helped by the fact that they accelerated their preparation for playing in the Europa League. And now, freed from the games in the European arena, they can fully concentrate on the matches of the national championship.

Another question is whether the wards of Igor Jovicevich have enough strength for the remaining matches. After all, unlike in previous years, Shakhtar’s current base is made up of young Ukrainian players, and for some of them such a busy schedule of high-level matches is the first in their career. And here the right coaching decision is very important, who to let out on the field now, and to give someone a rest. Moreover, the other day most of the players of the Donetsk club were involved in the games for the national and youth teams of Ukraine.

And the miners, who were not involved in the national teams, filled the pause in the championship with training and a test match with the amateur club Yunost from the Lviv region. The game was held in Vynniki at the Bohdan Markevich Stadium and ended with a 3-0 victory for Shakhtar.

Match statistics

At the Premier League level, the rivals have played 52 matches. In 38 of them, Shakhtar won, 7 times Odesa won, and in 7 more matches, the referees recorded a draw. In the first round in the 4th round, the teams played at the Arena-Lviv, and then the miners achieved success 2:1. The scoring in that match was opened by Bragar from Odessa in the 10th minute. And only towards the end of the game in the 74th minute Shved restored the balance. And on 90+6 minutes Traore brought victory to Shakhtar.

Approximate compositions:

“Chernomorets”: Bad weather, Putrya, Salyuk, Guchek, Bragaru, Kuzyk, Vasiliev, Demchenko, Badibanga, Alefirenko, Hadida

“Miner”: Trubin, Mikhailichenko, Rakitsky, Matvienko, Hemp, Stepanenko, Bondarenko, Sudakov, Kryskiv, Kelsey, Traore

Forecast for the confrontation:

Although it won’t be easy for Shakhtar, we’ll still bet on the victory of Igor Jovicevich’s wards. But the Odessans should play enough for their own goal. Therefore, suppose the result is 1:2 in favor of the guests.
