Tavriya vs. Dynamo. Match preview

The White-Blues set off to Simferopol to contend Tavriya in a Ukrainian Cup quarter-final first leg in one of the three encounters left to play before the winter break.

With so much said and written about the injuries chasing the team, it makes no sense to reiterate. To put it briefly, Oleh Luzhnyy is unable to lineup over a dozen of players. In order to complete the 18-men squad, the acting head coach is going to deploy four reserves footballers: defender Artem Butenin, half-back Denys Harmash and strikers Artem Kravets and Roman Zozulya.
