Undoubtedly, the Ukrainian side leaves as a favorite due to its collective potential, which can be maintained even when acting as a visitor. For this reason and knowing that the place is not a European weight selection, we believe that the simple triumph of the visit is interesting to bet. It paints to be a closed duel at times, but favorable to the Ukrainians because of its greater hierarchy at the time of elaborating and attacking.
The team arrives toned to this duel after beating Lithuania 2-1 at home and adding their first 3 points in the group. It is a combative team but limited due to the quality of its players. Of course, this will be his first great test of fire, as it will hit a superior team from the tactical and technical.
Therefore, it is expected that it can cool its rival and not give up a goal in the first 25 ‘minutes of play. If you get this, it is feasible that you can keep the zero for much of the game and dream of adding 1 more point in the general table. It is not ruled out that he groups several men in his area and that he advances and retreats en bloc without losing the balance between the lines.
The Ukrainian team comes very well to this match after equaling 0-0 against Portugal to visit and steal a valuable point in their struggle to sneak into the Euro 2020. While it is true that just begins the path of classification, a result of this type can be determinant in the long term.
Shevchenko’s team stood very well in this exit, managing to resist very well from the tactical and from the technical. Of course, he cleared many balls, since he gave 18 corners in total. In the end he could almost win, after having some chances of counterattack.
On this occasion, the visit is expected to risk more, being able to handle the ball and control the times from the initial stage. Ideally, keep the 4-1-4-1 system used against Portugal.
