Tip Reasoning

  • Ukraine lost just one of their last 14 matches.
  • Ireland won their first game in this competition in it’s third season last time out.
  • The only sides that Ireland beat away across the last four years were ranked outside of FIFA’s top-90.

Promotion is on the cards for impassioned Ukraine

Following their failed bid to qualify for the World Cup, Ukraine have bounced back in admirable style to begin this Nations League group with a 100% winning record (W2). Moreover, Ukraine haven’t conceded a goal across the last 236 minutes of regulation play, so one goal could be enough to win this encounter!

One of those wins to nil came against Ireland in Dublin, so this should be an easier feat on paper, especially considering that their visitors failed to win all but one of their historical clashes in this competition (W1, D5, L7).

Due to the ongoing geopolitical situation, this game will be played in neighbouring Poland, though this cannot be seen as too much of a disadvantage to Ukraine considering the sheer amount of support they have here, not to mention the fact that they blown Armenia away by a 3-0 scoreline last time out in Poland.

Sticking with the hosts

Although Ireland won last time out, that result could realistically just paper over the cracks of the problems that Stephen Kenny’s Ireland are facing, namely failure to qualify for the World Cup along with awful Nations League form.

The Irish manager has faced constant scrutiny in the media and we think that the magnifying glass will be right back on him after this game. As such, we are going for a home win in this encounter, with a smaller stakes selection on a workmanlike 2-0 Ukraine scoreline.
