Leicester has no experience playing against Ukrainian teams. But Zorya played against the British. In the 2016/2017 season, the “black and white” suffered two defeats from Manchester United - 0:1 and 0:2 in the group stage of the Europa League.
In the previous 7 matches within the Europa League, the Ukrainians were sure to break through the individual total over 0.5.Bet Now!
Throughout their history the “blue” participated in European competition only 2 times. In the 2000/2001 season they made it to the 1/64 of the UEFA Cup, where they were defeated by Crvena Zvezda. In the 16/17 season the team had the opportunity to test their strength in the Champions League, where they not only made it out of the group, but also reached the quarter finals, losing only to Atletico Madrid.
Now about the current form of "foxes". They started the English Championship very cheerfully, having won 3 wins in 3 matches. But then they suddenly began to decline. In the last two rounds the “blues” lost at home to West Ham and Aston Villa - 0:3 and 0:1, respectively.
Most likely, on the field will not appear: Vardi, Pereira, Amarty, Ndidi and Seyuncu.
In the last 6 matches in the LE, the “black-and-white” have only 1 loss, with 3 wins and 2 draws. We will add right away that all these matches fall on the qualifying rounds of the tournament.
It is curious that after Zorya won bronze medals for various reasons, almost half of the main players left the team at once. That is, the team that you will see on the field in the next mid-weekend is not exactly the people who got a direct ticket to the LE.
The form of Skripnik's charges is now ambiguous. In 6 matches of the Ukrainian championship they managed to earn only 6 points. The team is on the 9th line in the table goes.
Zorya is the underdog here. But the “black and white” were waiting for this Europa League and now they have the opportunity to prove themselves. Skripnik has many cool football players at his disposal, who are capable of making a name for themselves. If they are not too pressured by the fact that Leicester is a club from the Premier League, then the Ukrainians will be able to show good football.
Our forecast is "both will score - yes".
