The fact that they avoided defeat in the first game was a miracle. Not only because they were without a coach on the bench, but also because they have 10 players from the 9th minute and were behind the score in the 55th minute and was under a lot of pressure. Somehow they didn’t concede a second goal and equalized with a Pikhalyonok penalty in the 67th minute. Luck was heavily on their side afterwards, finished the match with 9 players. They still didn’t found a permanent solution for the bench yet, and comes down to the match with the goalkeeping coach Gorodov on the bench. Since they sold the leader and top scorer Dovbyk (30/24), they have a lot of offensive problems, while today Kogut (3/0 suspended), Sarapiy (2/0 suspended), Adamyuk (2/0) and Tretyakov (1/0) are out of the squad. With even more significant absences, Dnipro will have a lot of problems against Slovakian team that proved to be superior last week.
