Dnipro – Zorya
Dnipro has an extremely tight schedule with Europe League, Premier League and cup games. As you all know, on Thursday they will face Napoli where they have to give 100%. They are below Dynamo and Shakhtar and I do not see them fighting for title. For this game they will roate on many positions, especially in defence which is their biggest strenght. They have a big squad and today still we have good players like Shakhov, Gama and Selesnyzov involved in the starting XI but none of the men who started against Napoli is expected to play today.
Zorya Luganks are fighting for 4th place which they have to secure in the next 4 rounds. They have quite good attack and deep midfield. First goalie Shevchenko will make his second start in 2015 after "debutin" in last atchday. Zorya lost only from SHkhtar and DYnamo last month, managed a daw in Kyiv against Dinmo though. They are well rested because of no obligations in the cup.
Odds in local bookie Pari Match are 1.55 for home win, while most asians are with 1.45-1.50 for Dnipro win. I believe here fair line is +0.75 with 2.00. Luganks managed 3 wins and a draw against Dnipro in last 4 games, today I believe they can take at least a point against much weakened squad.
