Ukraine take on the visitors Scotland in the round 6 match of UEFA Nations League (League B). The match will be played on Tuesday, September 27th at Stadion MKS Cracovia (Kraków).
Ukraine are forced to play on a tighter schedule than most teams. All due to the fact that the playoff matches did not work out due to the unprovoked Russian military aggression, that started in February. As a result, the “yellow-blues” were able to play there in June - they went to Glasgow and defeated Scotland, but then suffered a bitter defeat in Wales. However, after that, Petrakov's wards managed to take 7 out of 9 points in the Nations League - a victory and a draw with Ireland and the defeat of Armenia. Only last Wednesday the teams played each other again - and the Ukrainians fell apart after first conceded goal. Then followed a flight to the other side of Europe, to Armenia. There, the overhauled national team rehabilitated itself in front of the fans, scoring 5 unanswered goals to the opponent.

Scotland delighted its fans last year. Finally, they managed to break through to the final tournament - for the first time in this century they played at such a level. True, at the Euro itself, the Scots limited themselves to one draw in three matches and did not leave the group - but they recorded 0-0 in the den of the neighboring rivals, England. In June they also lost to Ireland, however, having recouped on the Armenians - they beat the outsider in both meetings. The current "window" is taking place in a tight schedule - this fight will be the 3rd one in a week. Moreover, with personnel losses, some of which were known in advance, it was initially clear that the captain, Robertson, would not arrive. Even without him, due to energy and dedication, it turned out to break Ukraine. And then to issue strong-willed 2-1 with neighbors, Ireland.
This is the 3rd head-to-heads in 3 months! And for all the time before that there were only qualifying matches for Euro 2008, in which the parties exchanged confident home victories. Bookmakers consider Ukraine to be the favorite of the confrontation. But this is a decisive duel, and the nominal visitors are motivated as much as possible - it has always been their trump card. The parties should splash out as much as possible, so we bet on "over 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
