Zorya Luhansk is not going through a good phase in the season, considering that he does not win five games, accumulating unsatisfactory results and losing important points inside the house, which prevents a very good campaign in the Ukrainian championship. However, in the Europa League the club has a reasonable performance and still has good chances of qualifying for the next phase, although Group J is very balanced, with a difference of three points from the leader for the last classified. When observing the numbers of the national championship, it is possible to notice that the team is characterized by a somewhat weak defensive system, and that is confirmed in the continental tournament, since it has the worst defense of its group. It is likely that the coach will organize the team in a 4-2-3-1 or a 4-1-4-1, maintaining the starting lineup, highlighting the good form moment of the left-back Sukhotskiy.
