The Ukrainian Premier League has lost some of its appeal. There is less money and less interesting players in the tournament. Therefore, today the predictions of the Ukrainian Premier League are not so popular, but the championship is still being watched, and bets are being placed on it.
Who will win The Ukrainian Premier League?
The last 15 years in the Premier League there is a duopoly – the fight for the championship lead Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk. There was a period when Metallist and Dnepr tried to become the third force, but both clubs faced financial difficulties.
In the current UPL 12 clubs play, so the tournament is held in several stages:
First stage. All 12 clubs play against each other twice, 22 rounds are held;
Second stage. Teams are divided into two groups of 6 teams. The best 6 play for the championship and places in European competitions, the worst 6-for the right to stay in the UPL.
Ukrainian Premier League rules:
- 1st place – Champions League;
- 2nd place – Champions League qualifying;

- 5th place - UEFA Europa League qualification.
The first stage of 22 rounds will be completed in March 2019. The key fixture between Shakhtar and Dynamo will be held on November 3.
