Comments of teams mentors:
Andrii Romanovych, head coach of SC "Prometey":
- SC "Balta" can surprise any opponent. This team is still in the formative stages, with a number of new players who have yet to be fully fleshed out. However, the team has character, which was also shown in their last match against the national team of Ukraine U-17 of Ukraine. Having won the match ball with a score of 0-2, the team from Balta turned the game in their favor. Therefore, we need to seriously prepare for this opponent.
The head coach of SC "Balta" Serhii Koltsov:
- Our team will try to impose a fight on Prometey. It would be great to add points to your account. Even if it is just one thing, it will already be a kind of success for our team.
