Scotland – Ukraine betting tips and picks
Scotland and Ukraine meet at Hampden Park on Wednesday as the two nations continue their bids to reach the World Cup in Qatar. This clash was originally scheduled for April but was postponed due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The winner of World Cup 2022 play-off will go on to face Wales in the final. Whoever wins that game will secure a place in Group B in Qatar alongside England, Iran and the USA.
Both Scotland and Ukraine arrive here in good form – hence they’re in the playoff semi-final. Despite both being in good form, we expect Ukraine to take the win here. Scotland haven’t lost a game since September where they experienced a four game winless run. Ukraine meanwhile haven’t lost since July when England beat them at the European Championships.
Scotland prepare for this game following on from a 2-2 International Friendlies draw versus Austria. Scotland haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games. They’ve hit an aggregate of 11 during that time while also conceding a total of 5. We shall soon see whether or not that trend can be continued on in this game.
Ukraine come into this clash after a 0-2 WC Qualifiers – Europe win against Bosnia in their last fixture. In that match, Ukraine had 57% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. For Ukraine, the goals were scored by Oleksandr Zinchenko (58′) and Artem Dovbyk (79′). Bosnia got 7 attempts on goal with 3 on target. The stats tell the story, and Ukraine have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 6 goals in total. At the back, Ukraine have been far from perfect.
- Ukraine have drawn 5 of their last 7 international matches
- Scotland are unbeaten in each of their last 8 international matches
- Scotland won 3:1 when these sides last met in Glasgow in 2007
- Scotland have scored in eight of their last nine home games.
- Both teams have scored in nine of Ukraine’s last 10 games and they have scored in 24 of their last 26 games.
- Scotland have won their last three competitive home games.
- Lyndon Dykes scored four goals in eight games during the qualifying group stages.
During the play-off draw, both teams were really lucky as they were drawn into possibly the easiest path to one of the last three WC 2022 spots for European teams. The other two teams competing in this bracket were Wales and Austria – the Welsh team won in March and now is waiting for its opponent to be determined today.
