Ukraine v Portugal Euro 2020 Qualifying Preview, 14th October 7.45 pm

Ukraine are five points clear at the top of Group B over Portugal, having played a game more. So as long as they avoid defeat in this one then it is likely that they are going to go on and claim top spot in the group. Portugal are four points ahead of third-placed Serbia so they will want to come through this tough away game unscathed. Read our Ukraine v Portugal betting tips for more.

Ukraine News and Form

Ukraine took a 2-0 home win over Lithuania on Friday to keep themselves strong at the top of their qualification group. That has left them with a W5 D1 record from their six games. In that sequence of fixtures, they have scored at an average of just over two goals per game, and have conceded just one. When they met Portugal earlier in the campaign they played out a 0-0 draw with them in Lisbon.

That would do nicely for them back on home soil as well. Ukraine haven’t lost a game since November last year and are looking for a very tidy unit. They have posted a W5 D3 record in their last eight fixtures, scoring at least two goals in five of their last six played. They have put together an unbeaten record of seven games in their last six home fixtures, picking up five clean sheets. They have not conceded in any of their last four European Championship home qualifiers.

Portugal News and Form

Portugal are going to be more concerned about Serbia not catching up with them than they are about trying to reel in leaders Ukraine. If Portugal were to lose this one on Monday and Serbia beat Lithuania, that would leave Portugal with just a one-point advantage over the Serbians with two to play. It would create a bit of pressure, but you will still bank on the Portage to get their top-two finish.

With their 3-0 home win over Luxembourg on Friday, Portugal are on a five-match winning streak. They have scored at least three goals in all but one of those five victories as well. Cristiano Ronaldo moved on to 699 career goals with a strike against Luxembourg. Will he make the magic 700? Portugal have remained undefeated in their last five away games, winning four of those. Again, they have been scoring very well, but will they be able to break a very strong Ukraine defence?

Who will win – Ukraine v Portugal Predictions

Ukraine don’t even have to bother coming out of their shell in this one, because a point for them would leave them very happy and on course to win the qualification group. Portugal are in good shape but will probably be more worried about not losing. Draw.
