April 21, «Dnipro United» accepts «Patriots»

On April 21, in the SUPER LEAGUE 2019 ULAF championship, the match between «Dnipro United» and «Kyiv Patriots» will take place. And if the Kiev club is already well known to us, thanks to its games in past years, then the club from the city of Dnepr remains a «dark horse». As stated by the representative of the «United» Maxim Vasilik, their club was created from three. And only this fact alone does not allow us to doubt their serious «claims» to the playoffs. Moreover, this past weekend, the second and younger members of the Dnieper club «United 2» debuted in the first league of the ULAF. The guys lost to the «Azov Dolphins» with a difference of 18 points. Nevertheless, the baptism of fire already exists.



Above, I wrote about merging three clubs into one in the city of Dnepr. So, sure that the United roster is fine. The representative of the club «Patriots» – Yuriy Gundich so appreciated his composition before the start of the season: «We managed to keep the backbone – this is important. Of course, the «pension» was not spared, and our team – Artem Pugach LB and Denis Kvashuk CB decided to finish with football. Both were base players and both deserved the honor». In addition, the people of Kiev had a winter set under the leadership of Sergei Bezutsky, and were able to get new players to the «gaping» positions. Though not so experienced.



It is difficult to predict or predict the potential outcome of the match. If you take «United», the union can be attributed to both positive and negative. Plus – the opportunity to collect the best of the three clubs. Minus – the ability to make play smoothly. On the contrary, the Patriots preserved the backbone, but the players who had “shone” more than once in the postgame reviews as the very best in their positions left.
