"Polissia" drew with in the opening match of the 16th round of the Ukrainian Premier League (UPL). Nominally, the home match for Zhytomyr took place at the Avangard stadium in Rivne and ended with a score of 1:1.

Yuriy Kalitvintsev's team took the lead in the second half. In the 68th minute, Borys Krushynskyi shot the goal after a corner kick, taking advantage of Pylyp Budkivskyi's throw-in.

We would like to add that "Polissia" has extended its unbeaten streak, which has been going on since mid-September, when Zhytomyr lost to "Chornomorets" in the 7th round of the Ukrainian championship. Since then, Kalitvintsev's wards have not lost 11 matches (9 in the UPL and 2 in the Cup of Ukraine).

In the next round, which will be the last before the winter break, Polissia will host Dnipro-8 on December 1, and the Rivne team will meet with Shakhtar on the same day.
