Heavy standings motivates our team to fight really hard in Uzhgorod. There is no other way. Indeed, the outcome of this match could be the determining factor in the fate of our team.
If we analyze the standings, the "Illichivets" can feel safe on the 6th step. In the struggle for European Cups it will be difficult for the Mariupol team to compete with Odesa "Chornomorets" who are 7 points ahead. So the team is in a kind of comfortable "middle ground", unlike us. Almost every match for us is very important and it would be good if the nearest competitors lose points in the next matches.
Everyone knows that "Illichivets" is one of the most promising teams in the UPL. It’s no secret that the team consists mostly of young but very skilled players of Donetsk "Shakhtar" who for some reasons can not yet compete with the major players of the Donetsk team. And of course, we can not forget about the coach. Mykola Pavlov is a specialist, who has repeatedly proved his high professional quality, a coach who likes to educate and work with promising youth.
