Lviv UEFA Cup Bid Continues
Karpaty Lviv vs. Illychivets Mariupol, Ukraina Stadium, 28 November, kick-off at 19.00
West Ukraine is seriously under-represented in the Ukrainian Premier League, with just two sides west of the Dnipro River competing in the country’s top division this season, but with Lviv’s talisman side Karpaty in contention for one of Ukraine’s UEFA Cup spots it could still be a good year for West Ukrainian football fans. Lviv enter this match in 7th place in the 16-team league and hovering just four points off a UEFA Cup place. They face a Mariupol side who are just below them in the table but who also have UEFA Cup ambitions of their own. Tickets available on the day of the match from kiosks close to Ukraina Stadium.
