Scotland, Ukraine, to meet after dropping in the World Cup

Scotland and Ukraine

will meet once again after both countries were eliminated from the World Cup qualifiers. These two clubs will meet once again for the UEFA Nations League. Although both clubs missed out the World Cup, they managed to be at the top two spots in League B. Both Scotland and Ukraine had a game in hand on the other two teams in their group. Scotland hosts Ukraine in their match on September 22, 2022, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8).

Scotland’s campaign in the Nations League is very hard to predict. They will win dominating their opponent, and then experience a defeat. Nonetheless, they are still in a good position as they are currently second in their group with six points from their three games. On the other hand, Ukraine have been nothing but impressive in the tournament. So far, they play very solid despite their World Cup qualification disappointments. They currently sit at the top of their group having seven points in their games.

After falling short in their World Cup qualifying bid, Scotland had an impressive start for their Nations League campaign. They managed to score six points from their first three matches in the tournament, which puts them in the second spot in their group. After they defeated Armenia, the Scots lag behind one point against the Ukrainian squad. This is an important match for Scotland as this will define their destiny in the Nations League. Now that they will meet Ukraine in the Nations League, they want a win so they will finally have the top spot. As this squad was deprived of success from the previous seasons, they badly want to recover and continue their winning ways.

Scotland will be without their captain, Andy Robertson because of his injury. Luckily, Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney returns for the Scots and is expected to start in this match. However, Jacob Brown, Grant Hanley, and Jon McLaughlin all withdrawn from the squad. With the absence of these important players, everyone in the team is expected to step-up for this squad.

If Scotland wants to snatch the top spot from Ukraine, Ukraine wants to retain their spot in the Nations League group stage. The Ukrainians almost made it to the World Cup, but unluckily for them, they lost against Wales in the finals. In Ukraine, no competitive football is made because of the recent Russian invasion in the country. However, this squad can get inspiration from the recent war happening there. Despite the heartbreaking loss Ukraine suffered against Wales, they have a surprisingly amazing start in the Nations League. This squad remains unbeaten in the tournament as they won against Ireland and Armenia.

A very important player will not see action for the Ukrainian squad as Oleksandr Zinchenko sustained a calf injury. Mykola Shaparenko will also not see in action for Ukrain after suffering from an ACL injury.

Prediction:

Ukraine (2.0)
Odds: 0.88
