Ukraine vs England: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Ukrainians reach the quarter-finals after a nail-biting victory over Sweden in the Round of 16. The match was settled in the 121st minute with only seconds left to go before a penalty shoot-out.
The bad news for the Ukrainians is that they have lost arguably their best player – the creative forward Andriy Yarmolenko.
Of seven meetings between the two teams, Ukraine has won only once.
The English advanced to the quarter-final round after defeating the Germans in a closely-fought game. It was only in the last quarter of an hour of the match that the scales tipped in favour of the English.
In a surprise to many, the English have struggled to score goals. Nevertheless, they have compensated well for this “weakness” with very strong defensive play and, indeed, they are the only team that has not yet conceded a single goal.
- Three wins and two defeats for Ukraine in their last five games
- Four consecutive matches conceding at least one goal for Ukraine
- Ten consecutive matches without losing for England, nine wins and one draw
- England have only conceded one goal in their last ten matches
Ukraine vs England Predictions
The Ukrainians come into this match with some very significant absentees. They will also be weighed down by their very long match against Sweden, which could be damaging against a team as physical as the English. For their part, the English, in virtually every aspect of the game, appear stronger than the Ukrainians and so are the clear favourites for this match.
We believe that the Ukrainians will struggle to get on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, the English have the ability to pose a threat at goal but have been struggling to find the net, so it is likely to be a low-scoring game.
