Ukraine have been disappointing in this tournament and they will most likely end their campaign against Poland. The Polish have pretty much secured qualification while it will be a near miracle if Ukraine make it through so it will be interesting to see how this game turns out.
Ukraine had expectation to finish third in this group at the very least but their loss to Northern Ireland ended most hopes of that happening. This is not a bad side but they have just failed to perform in this tournament and that will cost them. This game will be a chance for them to get a result and then let them hope for a few more days. That being said, Poland will look to win since they know they still have chance of finishing top of their group.
Poland have been impressive and their game against Germany showed that this side has the ability to defend. It was known that the Polish would have goals in them but the way that they held Germany to a 0-0 draw showed that this side might just be able to run deep in this competition.
As far as this game is concerned, I am going to predict a Polish win. It looks like the Polish are more interested in this tournament that the Ukrainians are and that should be enough for them to get through. The odds we are getting are a little short but I think they are still worth taking since I don’t see Poland ever not winning this game. Both teams not to score is also a pretty good bet since Ukraine has not scored all tournament and I don’t think they will end that trend against a Polish defense that kept Germany out.
