The visiting contingent, sporting a whopping 16 points clear of this weekend’s opposition, are considered huge favorites for the win here. Given they guard against complacency, the Miners should have enough about themselves to roar to victory.

Head coach Viktor Skrypnyk has masterminded his Zorya Luhansk side to a Champions League place challenge, sitting third on the log, just two points adrift of second-placed Dynamo Kyiv. Indeed, they are having a great season, one which will be buttered by a top-two finish on the standings.

Zorya Luhansk vs Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

After finishing 5th last season; securing European football in the process, Zorya came into this campaign hopeful of a strong campaign. To date, they’ve enjoyed exactly that, currently sitting 3rd with 43 points from 22 games; stationed just 2 points behind Dynamo Kiev and a Champions League place.

Any kind of result on Sunday would be a huge one for Zorya but it’ll be a massive ask for them to get one. 

Indeed, despite being one of the strongest sides in Ukranian football they are still some way off the level of Shakhtar; something evidenced by the fact they’ve lost their last 5 games against them, conceding an average of 2.2 goals a game in the process.

Meanwhile, after cruising to the title last year and having won the domestic crown 3 times in a row, it’s no surprise to see Shakhtar at the top of the Vyscha Liga. It’s been business as usual for the visitors this campaign and they find themselves 14 points clear of nearest rival Dynamo.

Shakhtar have resources and quality far superior to all other outfits in Ukraine and that’s why the domestic league there is one of the most one sided on the planet. Overall, the visitors have won 19 of their 22 league outings this term and they go into every game they play as huge favourites.

Ultimately, there can be no questioning that the visitors are big favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Man for man, they are simply stronger in all areas than Zorya. The hosts aren’t a bad outfit but don’t have the quality to stand up to a domestically unstoppable visiting team.
