It was accepted and Lviv are back in the Premier League fort the first time in nine years. They are set to open the campaign on Sunday afternoon with the clash against Arsenal Kyiv away at Stadion Dynamo im. Valery Lobanovsky.

Arsenal did not feature the top tier in the last term either. They qualified for it by winning Persha Liga last year (three points clear of second-placed Poltava), marking the return after a four-year wandering in the second division.

Arsenal Kyiv v Lviv: Head-to-head

The two teams played each other just two times over the course of history.

Matches happened in the 2008/09 campaign.

Arsenal Kyiv picked up a win and a draw each, keeping clean sheets in both ties against Lviv back then.

Interestingly, these two games produced just one goal in total.

Arsenal Kyiv v Lviv: Prediction

Both teams made a number of changes to their last season squads, meaning managers will likely need some time to bed in the new arrivals. Arsenal Kyiv made a fantastic move by hiring the famous Italian Fabrizio Ravanelli as the new head coach.

The clash with Lviv will mark his official debut on the bench, but he certainly has headaches ahead of it. These are caused by the lack of efficiency ion the final third as Arsenal failed to find the back of the net in any of last two friendlies against Cherkasyji Dnipro and Kolos Kovalivka.

The visitors were much more successful in pre-season tests, winning two and drawing one of last three. We’ll thus go with Lviv not to lose at the odds of 1.53 as the main betting option, while you should not make a mistake backing a low-scoring contest either.
