Slovakia vs Ukraine UEFA Nations League Prediction by LeagueLane

Slovakia vs Ukraine
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 16 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: City Arena Trnava (Trnava).

It’s pretty much all clear in Group 1 of League B where Ukraine won three from three to secure the top spot finish even before November fixtures. Blue-White shipped just one goal in three games so far and they will qualify for the elite class league next term regardless of what happens on Friday night in Slovakia.

The hosts will try and grab their first points of the campaign to raise the spirits ahead of the local derby against Czech Republic on Monday evening. A win there would be required for the Flacons if they are to avoid the rock-bottom of the standings and the elimination to the League C football next time around.

Slovakians made the change on the bench after a disappointing 1-2 defeat to Czech Republic at home a month ago. Stefan Tarkovic took over Jan Kozak and he started off with a 1-1 draw in a friendly against Sweden just days after the team suffered the mentioned defeat to Czechs.

Slovakia vs Ukraine: Head-to-head

This will be eight head to head encounter between the two outfits.

Ukraine were more successful so far with three wins and draw apiece and only a single defeat.

It was Andriy Yarmolenko’s penalty-kick goal which made the difference when these two likes met in the first UEFA Nations League clash in September (1-0 win for Ukraine).

Three or last four head to head affairs saw fewer than two goals scored.

Slovakia vs Ukraine: Prediction

Andriy Shevchenko will have significant problems with his first-team line-up here. He will miss West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko through injury, while he will also be without the likes of Yaroslav Rakistkiy, Marlos and Artem Kravets. Basically, Ukraine have only one forward in the squad (Gent’s Roman Yaremchuk).

Given the visitors have generally done well without being prolific up front so far in the campaign, we see the value in backing Slovakia to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.62 here. The Under 2.5 goals pick is a banker at 1.53.

Slovakia vs Ukraine: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.53 (8/15)
  • Slovakia to keep a clean sheet @ 2.62 (13/8).
