Scotland – Ukraine: Two matches in six days will be played by the two teams, who had also faced each other on June 1 for a different event and certainly with a different motivation at the time. In the World Cup qualifiers, in a single game with Ukraine beating Scotland 3-1 away from home and leaving them out. Ukraine was also left out after all, as they were defeated by Wales 1-0 and will not be in Qatar. In a very difficult period, however, due to the war in the country, the Ukrainians manage to stay upright in terms of football.
We also see it from the clubs and their presence in the European competitions. We also see it from the course of the National Team in this Nations League. First place after the first three matches, with two wins against EIRE and Armenia and a draw with EIRE (1-1). If the team succeeds again in Glasgow, it will essentially have secured first place. Ukraine will escape with four points, two races before the finale and will still need two in the last two races. Ukraine has absentees, like Bushan, Sobol, Zinchenko, Saparenko and Besedin who cannot compete.
Scotland follow with six points after beating Armenia twice. With 2-0 at home and 4-1 away. Scotland lost in Ireland with the heavy 0-3, now they have to play it all for everything against Ukraine. Also looking for revenge for that defeat in June that “threw” them out of the World Cup. Important absences for Scotland are Robertson and O’Donnell.
The betting take: Scotland can take advantage of their home ground, get the win and lead the top of the group. The absences of the Ukrainians may play a role in the final outcome of the match. The performance of the Scots is amazing, we bet on a performance of 2.52 (TigersBet).
