Predictions

The hosts have lost just once in their last thirteen home fixtures across all competitions. Their opponents on the other hand have lost six of their last 13 fixtures on the road. Therefore, I have backed Scotland to register the win.

Scotland have scored in both halves in their preceding two World Cup qualifiers. Considering the odds it is not a bad idea to back them doing it again.

Scotland vs Ukraine: Betting odds

  • Full time result: Scotland @ 2.47 odds.
  • To score in both halves: Scotland @ 4.33 odds.

Possible starting lineups

Scotland

Gordon; Hendry, Hanley, Cooper; O’Donnell, McTominay, McGregor, Robertson; McGinn, Dykes, Christie

Ukraine

Pyatov; Karavaev, Zabarnyi, Matvienko, Mykolenko; Malinovskyi, Stepanenko, Zinchenko; Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Tsygankov

Scotland vs Ukraine: Pre match press conference

Steve Clarke, Scotland manager: “This team, this squad of players, will go to another tournament,” the Scotland head coach said.

“We said we didn’t want to be one-tournament wonders. I’m convinced that this group of players won’t be, whether it’s this tournament 2022 in Qatar or 2024 in Germany or 2026 in America.”

“They made a decision to get their football players out the country and to a training camp because they want to play and want to try to give their nation a boost by qualifying for Qatar,” he says.

“The game goes ahead amid the horrific outside influence, but for us, we focus on the game of football.

“How you would deal with yourself if you were put in that situation, you don’t know until you’re actually there, but I’ve nothing but good thoughts for them and good wishes for them – except for during the game.”
