Two rounds before the end of the championship, Kolos Kovalivka is in fourth place, one point ahead of Desna and Vorskla will play a face-to-face match in this round, which gives Ruslan Kostyshyn’s team a good chance to break away from competitors. To do this, they need to beat Oleksandriya, which has lost motivation this season.
Vladimir Sharan will leave the position of the head coach of Oleksandriya in the end of the season. Sharan will vacate his position by agreement with the club’s management, failing to lead the team to the Ukrainian Cup final and place in the European competitions. They are in desperate form with 5 losts in the last 6 matches and today they will host Kolos at the Zvezda Stadium in Kropyvnytskyi. This is due to the fact that the replacement of the lawn begins at the Nika Stadium in Oleksandriya.
Kolos Kovalivka is in a must-win situation because in the last round they will meet Dynamo Kyiv and expect to do their job and reserve their ticket in the qualification to Europa League.
