Ukraine vs. Italy Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Ukraine vs. Italy at UEFA EURO Qualifications

  • Where: BayArena, Leverkusen, Germany
  • When: Monday, November 20, 8:45 PM CET

This is a do or die game for both units. A winner here is off to the EURO in Germany next year, while the loser hopes to get a chance for redemption in the playoffs. The Italian unit has a better head-to-head record after a win in the first meeting, and that’s a slight advantage for Azzurri, who aren’t looking quite right these past few months. Ukraine is in a tough spot, playing in Germany and not being able to have a true home-field edge.

Ukraine vs. Italy Preview

Ukraine

Ukraine had a very nasty World Cup playoff experience, and they aren’t quite keen on repeating that trauma once more. That’s why they must win this contest and push the Italian unit out of the top two places. 

The team has played well in recent times. They’ve posted a draw against England 1-1, but then lost to Italy on the road, 2-1. Afterward, we’ve seen them defeat North Macedonia 2-0, pretty routinely, before overpowering Malta in the same manner, only with the result 1-3. 

Mydruk and the lads are very fluid in the midfield, and their overall mobility is at a high level. The quickness of not only Chelsea’s forward, but several other players allows them to be very dangerous in transition, which is their main virtue.

Italy

Azzurri aren’t looking like the reigning European champions, and that’s been the case for a long time. They would first miss the World Cup, and now, they aren’t safe to reach the EURO as well, which is a big shame for the four-time world champions. 

England was too big of a challenge for the Italians in their latest meeting, with the Albion winning at home in London, 3-1. This game showed where Italy stands at the moment, and to be honest, the reality isn’t pleasant for them. 

Check this out – in the past ten games, Italy has only two clean sheets, both against Malta. A decade ago, they would have only two games in ten in which they conceded, and that’s the perfect indicator of the difference in power between the current and the previous generations.

Ukraine vs Italy Predictions

There is no room for calculations for the Ukrainians. They have to be bold and decisive here and go after a victory. Italy’s defense is fragile, and we sincerely believe that Luciano Spalletti won’t defend himself and wait for the rivals to throw the first punch. Therefore, we pick both teams to score, as it seems to be the best possible pick under the current circumstances. 

Our verdict: Both teams to score
