Wales vs Ukraine Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Wales vs Ukraine at the World Cup playoffs.

  • Where: Cardiff City, Cardiff, Wales
  • When: Sunday, June 5, 6 pm ET

Wales meets Ukraine in the playoffs for the World Cup. Whoever wins this event will take part in the spectacle in Qatar set for the end of this year. Wales has the home-field advantage, but the Ukrainians showed already that they don’t care about that. We’ve seen them outclassing Scotland in Glasgow, dominantly winning and bringing joy to their fans. Though Wales is not Scotland, but apparently a better team when looking at the FIFA rankings.

Wales vs Ukraine Preview

Wales

The Dragons play very intense and rough football, and they have been a refreshment at EURO, even though they suffered a hard defeat in the round of 16 against Denmark. They have a few youngsters who are already taking over the torch from Bale and the boys, indicating a bright future for this country.

Wales played in Poland this Wednesday, losing to the hosts, 2-1, at the start of the UEFA Nations League competition. However, they weren’t thinking of that match too much, and they openly stated so.

When looking at the stats, the noticeable pattern is that six of the last seven games ended with both teams scoring, while the latest four concluded with moderate efficiency, meaning 2 or 3 goals.

Ukraine

The Ukrainian team trashed Scotland in Glasgow, 1-3, dominating throughout the entire event. We’ve seen them focused and poised on both ends of the field, and not for one moment did this unit look lost or confused. Even when Scotland cut the lead, we were sure that Ukraine will win.

When counting in the friendly international games against the clubs (Borussia Monchengladbach, Empoli, and Rijeka) they had this May, Ukraine is without a defeat for the last 11 events. Throughout that stretch, they won five times and played six draws.

We didn’t see both teams scoring in their games only once throughout the above-mentioned interval. It also needs to be said that Ukraine finished second in their qualifying group, behind France, but without a single goal allowed.

Wales vs Ukraine Head to Head

The most recent event between these two countries was in 2016. It was a friendly international in Kyiv, and the hosts won, 1-0. Andriy Yarmolenko scored the only goal here after 28 minutes of play. Wales was better, but the hosts eventually won.

Wales vs Ukraine Prediction

This will be an interesting game, as both sides constantly score and concede goals. We’ve mentioned that most of their respective contests end with both sides netting, which will be our pick for Sunday’s clash in Cardiff. Wales and Ukraine have a similar quality, stressing that we think the guests have a slight edge overall, but we wouldn’t recommend risking anything and placing bets on the final result.

Our Verdict: Both Teams to Score
