F.C. Lviv have struggled to adapt to the pace of the Ukrainian Premier League since their summer debut, but the top division’s new boys earned a priceless 1-0 home win over F.C. Kharkiv October 18 at their compact Kniazha Stadium in the charmingly named Lviv Oblast town of Dobromyl. F. C. Lviv remain trapped in the bottom two, but the win saw them climb above bottom  placed Kharkiv. On November 15 Lviv will enjoy its first ever genuine derby match, when Karpate  play host to F.C. Lviv in a Ukrainian Premier League clash at Ukraina Stadium. This little piece of  local history will take place with Karpate also languishing in the lower reached of the league, with  only three points separating them in fifteenth place and the two relegation berths.
