Ukraine vs Finland: Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips-12th November 2016

Ukraine vs Finland
2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers – Europe, Group I.
Date: Saturday, 12th November 2016
Kick-off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Chornomorets Stadium, Odessa.

Expectations will be high on Ukrainian national team as the play host to inexperienced Finland in game-week 4 of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers on Saturday night. The game is scheduled to take place by 20:45 at Stadion Chornomorets Odessa Ukraine. After Ukraine’s awful outing in the Euro championship, they have been in a better shape so far.

Ukraine are unbeaten in the campaign so far, with 2 draws and a win. They will come into this game from a 3-0 win against Kosovo in game week 3 and will hope for a similar performance in this game.

Finland have been so poor, they have been winless so far this year. They have drawn just 2 games and lost 8 games in the 10 games they have played this year. A win in this game won’t help them much but it will move them to 4th should Turkey fail to win.

Ukraine vs Finland: Head to Head Statistics

There are no history of games between the two teams, this will be their first game together. Both teams will look forward to keeping a good record in this one.

Ukraine vs Finland: Prediction

Finland’s form has been appalling, they are nowhere near their host in comparison. Finland have issues on both sides of the pitch, they have been conceding a lot and also finding it difficult to score. They have scored only 4 goals in the 10 games they have played this year. If Finland can resolve their scoring issues, their problem will be half solved.

Ukraine have no reason to lose this game, they are huge favourites and are playing on home soil. A win is expected from them, also a clean sheet is expected from them too.
