Scotland comes into this game sitting in 1st place in the group having picked up 12 points. On Saturday, they faced off against Ireland, and Scotland scored two goals on the way to the victory. They had 62 percent of the possession and secured the easy victory. They fell behind 1-0, but they scored two goals after the 49th minute. Scott McTominay picked up a yellow card in the last game, and he will be suspended for this game. Scott McKenna and Kieran Tierney both won’t be able to go in this game,
On the other side of this matchup is Ukraine, who sits in second place in the standings having picked up 10 points. On Saturday, Ukraine faced off against Armenia, and they scored five goals on the way to victory. Ukraine started the scoring in the 22nd minute, and they never looked back as they cruised to the victory. They had 64 percent of the possession and six shots on target on the way to the victory. Serhii Sydorchuk picked up his second yellow card in the last game, and he will be suspended for this game. Mykola Matviyenko, Oleksandr Karavaev, Ruslan Malinovskyi, Andriy Yarmolenko, Mykhaylo Mudryk, and Artem Dovbyk all could be moved into the starting lineup in this game.
Scotland just beat Ukraine 3-0, but I don’t think this game will be so easy for them. I expect Ukraine to go in more of a defensive shape, and that is going to be the difference here, as Ukraine is going to be competitive. Look for this game to finish 1-0 or 1-1 and that will lead to a low-scoring game. Back the under to cash.
