Ukraine News and Form
Ukraine are in great form at the moment and they played out a 1-1 draw with Italy last Wednesday in preparation for this Nations League return. They have not suffered a loss since a defeat against Croatia in the World Cup qualifiers back in October last year. They are W5 D3 in eight games since then. They are two wins from two in the Nations League B1 group. That was back to back one goal margin wins for them. Ukraine to win by a one-goal margin in this one is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 2018 at 7:11 pm).
It is a trend well worth considering. In five of the last six wins that Ukraine have recorded (friendly and competitive) they have scored at least two goals in. So they have been producing quite well and we are going to back this one to go over 2.5 goals as well just as the first meeting between the two did. Ukraine beat Slovakia 1-0 in their second Nations League game.
Czech Republic News and Form
The Czech Republic are playing catch up then in this one. A win for them away from home would leave this interesting with them and Ukraine level on six points with one game each to play. The Czech Republic recovered from their defeat against Ukraine to post a narrow 2-1 win out at Slovakia in their second Nations League fixture. Sandwiched in between that was a 5-1 friendly defeat against Russia. Their win over Slovakia on the weekend sees them having posted a W7 L5 record in their last twelve games and it snapped a two-match losing streak.
So it’s not been too bad from them, but a lot of the games in that sequence were against sides they would expect to beat like China, Qatar and Australia so it’s a bit misleading. They don’t look all that sound defensively which is probably where they are going to fall down again in this one. Still, we are going to have a look at both teams to score at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 14th, 2018 at 7:11 pm) as they have netted in each of their last four games.
Ukraine v Czech Republic Head to Head
This will be the fourth meeting between the two nations. From the previous three, things are even with one win each and the one drawn match. Ukraine produced a 2-1 away win in the first meeting in this Nations League group. Those are their only goals against the Czech Republic.
Who will win – Ukraine v Czech Republic Predictions
We have to stick with Ukraine coming up with a victory in this one. They have been in great form for a long time now and having already taken a win over the Czech’s, they should complete the double back on home soil. Home win.
