Scotland v Ukraine Betting Tips & Predictions

Scotland are 8/5 favourites for the visit of Ukraine in Nations League B Group 1 on Wednesday night.

In a rematch of the World Cup playoff, Scotland host Ukraine at Hampden Park in a pivotal Nations League fixture on Wednesday.

This is the fourth match of the group stage for both teams, with Ukraine sitting top of the section on seven points, one ahead of the hosts.

Scotland finished second in their group in the inaugural Nations League, while Ukraine were relegated from the top tier after collecting just six points from a group with Spain, Germany and Switzerland.

Winner: Ukraine

43/20 (Unibet)

Scotland have won just two of their last six matches, both of which came against Armenia.

Ukraine fell to Wales in the decisive World Cup playoff match, but they won their next two matches to nil before a draw with Ireland.

Both teams are missing key players on the left side in Andrew Robertson and Oleksandr Zinchenko. 

Ukraine have a lot of experience throughout their squad, and appear to have the edge on quality in the final third. Home advantage is obviously a factor for the Scots here, but the price on Ukraine to win still looks far too long given their performances in the previous international break.

Anytime Goalscorer: Andriy Yarmolenko

3/1 (SportingIndex)

Former West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko is second all-time in Ukraine’s goalscoring charts, and has scored at a rate of 0.41 goals per match in his international career.

Yarmolenko remains an integral part of the Ukraine team even into his thirties, providing the assist for their lone goal last time out and scoring in the win over Scotland earlier this year.

With two assists and a goal in three appearances for Al-Ain, the 32-year-old is clearly a man in form. This is a good price.

Team To Score First: Ukraine

5/4 (Betway)

Ukraine have conceded just two goals in their last five matches. If you like the visitors to win the match, then backing them to score first is also a good bet to consider. 

Oleksandr Petrakov’s team had two goals on the board before Scotland scored when they last faced off.

The visitors know a win here can put them in a commanding position in their push for promotion – this is an interesting market if Scotland’s recent goalscoring form puts you off Ukraine to win to nil.
