Scotland vs Ukraine
UEFA Nations League
Date: Wednesday, 21 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hampden Park.
Ukraine are facing some serious domestic disturbances at home and topping their group in the Nations League would be a huge relief and confidence boost for the players as well as their people. This means that they will be determined to go after the three points against the second-placed Scotland.
The Ukrainians are unbeaten so far in the competition. In fact, they have a 100% winning record barring a single draw, and all through the campaign they let in just a single goal.
Moreover, they have a 100 percentage winning record on the road and they are yet to let in a goal into their nets in such matches.
This Wednesday, they are pitted against the second-placed Scotland, which means a win will possibly put them in the prime spot to secure promotion to the upper division.
Meanwhile Scotland have not been at their best in this tournament so far. One huge thing that worries their fans is their defeat against Ireland, and that too for a 3-goal margin.
Going on they also have a rather inferior head-to-head record against this rival over the years and taking into account all these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Ukraine this Wednesday.

Scotland vs Ukraine Prediction & Analysis
Scotland were winless in four of their past six overall fixtures and they lost two of their previous four games as well. They let in three or more goals in two of their past four matches and they let in two or more goals in three of their previous five games as well.
Do also note that they managed a single victory in front of their home crowd in the past 10 months.
On the other hand, not only are Ukraine unbeaten in this competition but they also remained invincible in 14 of their previous 15 fixtures. In the process they went on a two game-winning streak as well as another three-match winning stretch.
Considering these observations as well as the head-to-head superiority of Ukraine, expect a victory for them this Wednesday.
However, this is a crucial fixture for both teams and Scotland will try to find the back of the net at least once in front of their home crowd.
