Scotland vs Ukraine – All eyes will be on this match as the battle-tested Ukraine attempts to qualify for the 2017 World Cup. It goes without saying that this would be major news for their citizens around the world.

On the other hand, my heart aches for the Scots. They are portrayed as villains in this setting by default for no apparent reason. Almost every neutral fan will be pulling for them to lose. Once the beginning whistle is sounded, though, sentiments are meaningless.

In the first round of qualification matches, both sides had run nearly faultless campaigns. Ukraine had the misfortune of being placed in the same group as the defending champions, and thus had to settle for second place. It’s worth noting that they went undefeated during the season, despite facing the French twice. With the exception of the Les Bleus, they had also scored the most goals and conceded the fewest in the group.

Meanwhile, if Denmark hadn’t used their God Mode, the Scots could have finished first in Group F. Scotland won seven of their ten games throughout the campaign, allowing only seven goals in the process. Both of these clubs are in fine form, and with a ticket to the greatest of football stages on the line on Wednesday, anticipate a heated battle. Goals have a good chance of coming from either end of the field.

Scotland vs Ukraine- Betting Analysis

The Scots are on an eight-game unbeaten record, with a six-match winning streak in the process. Their only defeat in the qualifiers came at the hands of Denmark, who finished first. It’s also worth noting that they drew with eventual champions England in the recently ended Euro 2020.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainians are unbeaten in their last 10 games and have won three of their last four. They had also scored two or more goals in three of their previous four meetings. Given these insights and the gravity of the situation, the two clubs can expect a hard-fought matchup. Goals are expected to flood the field on Wednesday.
