Metalist Kharkov vs Tavriya Simferopol by 20legend

Metalist Kharkiv are in 5th place after 19 games with 34 points and two games in hand on the teams above them. However, their form has not been any good lately with just 0-3-2 from the last five games. It is important to remember though that their latest two opponents were Shaktar (2-4) and Dynamo Kiev (4-2). Their 5th place will give a qualification for the Europa League next season, and with Vorskla Poltava (6th, 33 points), Zorya (7th, 31 points) and Metalurg Donetsk (8th, 31 points), a victory in this game will certainly be important and also highly expected. Midfielder Juan Manuel Torres (2/0) and keeper Bogdan Shust (1/0) are still out with their long-term injuries.


Tavriya is a totally different story. They have just nine points from 21 games and are rock bottom with a 2-3-16 record so far. Their goal difference says it all with 13:35 and they have got 0-1-4 from their last five games. Oleg Gumenyuk (15/0) will be missing with a suspension tonight.


This game should definitely be a victory for the home side. They are the dominant team on the head-to-head meetings in the league (17 wins, 7 draws, 5 losses) and especially at home (11 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss). The two latest meetings have ended with a 5-0 and a 0-3 win for today’s hosts. The difference should be possible to spot on the result of this match as well. I expect Metalist Kharkiv to be the better team, and this should be a fine opportunity to get back on track with a win after two very difficult games lately. My pick will be Metalist Kharkiv with a European -1 handicap.
