Ukraine Premier League opens for Champions Shakhtar  Donetsk with a home tie against Hoverla Uzhhorod.

Shakhtar Donetsk  are late bloomers from the old USSR in that they never won a single Championship until 2001. Since that time though they have collected 8 league titles in all, with the last four in a row. They have created a dynasty in Ukraine and their model is to buy players and then sell on at a huge profit. The latest in a long line are Willian, Fernandinho and Henrik Myhitaryan.  All bought for less than 20 Million but sold for over 80 Million. Incoming is Wellington Nem and one to look out for in Fred. The Internacional playmaker is not to be confused with the Fluminense striker, but will be some player in his own right. Shakhtar are very short to retain the title again but do not be surpised to see them do well in Europe again.

Hoverla Uzhhorod have been in existence since the mid 1940’s but only really rose to prominence in 2001. A series of promotions and relegations to and from the Ukraine Premier League means they have not had a chance to consolidate at all in the top flight. With a best finish of 12th they are not expected to do anything this season other than fight for survival. The squad is limited and although containing a few Kiev players they are not looking one of the better sides in the league.


The odds are very short indeed as you would expect here with Shakhtar Donetsk the standout team in Ukraine. As short as 1.04 to win the game we are not getting rich backing them in the match betting.  Historically these sides have faced up 12 times and there have been 10 wins for Donetsk and 2 draws. At The Donbass Stadium there have been 5 meetings and 5 wins for Shakhtar, with 15 goals scored and just 1 conceded. Prices on all submarkets are really, really short. To find any decent prices on handicap betting you need to give Hoverla a 3 goal start which is hard. I take Shakhtar Donetsk To Win Both Halves at 1.62 (bet365) An unusual bet to be sure but good value when you consider they are as short as 1.04 for the game. Winning both halves should be straight forward enough.
