Poltava vs Sporting-Preview

 

  • Europa League (EL) Group E continues with the clash between Ukrainian outfit Vorskla Poltava and Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.
  • This will be the first meeting between the sides, and a perhaps a second baptism of fire for Vorskla, after a 4-2 loss on matchday one. Following their defeat to Arsenal.
  • The hosts may struggle to get that historic first win in the EL here, as their record against Portuguese opposition stands at W1, L3. Their only victory came here against Benfica.
  • The visitors’ away EL group record stands at an undesirable W5, D1, L9. However, Sporting are unbeaten vs Ukrainian opposition (W5, D1). The two of their three away games in that sequence saw both teams score, whilst four of those five victories were by a single-goal margin.
  • Players to watch:

Vorskla defender Volodymyr Chesnakov is the only player involved in the squad which beat Benfica in 2009 – he scored a late consolation goal at Arsenal on matchday one.

  • Nani is enjoying a flying start to his second stint in Lisbon. The Portuguese veteran has three goals from his first five domestic appearances back in Portugal.
  • Stat attack:

Vorskla have failed to win ten of their last 11 EL games (W1, D3, L7)

  • Each of Sporting’s last five EL games has produced under 2.5 goals.
  • If considering domestic form here, Vorskla are yet to draw a game after ten rounds of the Ukraine PL (W6, L4).
  •  Sporting have drawn just one of their six domestic fixtures (W4, D1, L1).
