Scotland-Ukraine Free Betting Tips
On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, Scotland will play the World Cup playoff match against Ukraine at Hampden Park in Glasgow. This match should have been played two months ago, but could not take place due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The winner of this game will play a playoff match against Wales for one spot in the World Cup. Scotland reached the playoffs by finishing second in Group F behind group winner Denmark. The team won 7 times and lost only 1 game. Also now the Scots are unbeaten for 8 consecutive games. For Scotland, defender Kieran Tierney of Arsenal will not be there anyway.
Ukraine also played a solid qualifying campaign. In a strong group with France, Finland, Bosnia and Kazakhstan, it even remained undefeated. Nevertheless, it finished behind the world champion. Of its eight qualifying matches, it played six draws and won only two. The big question will be how the Ukrainians’ selection will look like and how the form of the players from their own league will be, who have not played for months due to the war. However, the team still has international stars who have match rhythm in the squad. For example, Yaremchuk (West Ham), Zinchenko (Manchester City) and Malinovski (Atalanta Bergamo) are in the party.
Ukraine remained unbeaten throughout the qualifying series.
Scotland are unbeaten for the last 8 consecutive games.
Scotland kept the zero in its last 5 home games 3 times.
Ukraine is unbeaten in its last 10 games.
Ukraine has conceded one goal in the last 3 games.
Scotland is playing at home and it has shown that this is definitely an advantage. It lost only 1 of its last 13 home matches. For Ukraine, it will be missing match rhythm, although the team will be motivated to the bone to reach the World Cup. Both teams are evenly matched and we predict a draw and a decision via penalty kicks.
