Ukraine vs Luxembourg
EURO 2020 Qualification
Date: Monday, 10th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Arena Lviv (Lviv).
Exceeding expectations, Ukraine and Luxembourg took Group B by storm, and proudly adorns the top two spots in the table. With Portugal in the mix, one spot is almost surely lost to one of the aforementioned two, and as such, games such as these should be taken advantage of without mercy.
Ukraine is riding high with confidence after they valiantly held defending champions Portugal to a goalless draw, and that too while ridden with the away handicap.
The team’s next tie was against Luxembourg, the opponent for this fixture as well. Then, on the road, Ukraine scripted a magnificent comeback, to post valuable three points.
Luxembourg had drawn first blood, with a goal in the 34th minute, but the visitors struck back six minutes later. The first half ended with a 1-1 scoreline, and the next 45 minutes saw both teams trying hard for the winner.
Finally, in the third minute of injury time, Gerson Rodrigues played the villain for the home team, as he struck an own goal into his net. Coming into this game, Luxembourg will surely look for an upset, in order to settle scores.
Ukraine vs Luxembourg Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ukraine holds a 100% winning record against this opponent.
- Luxembourg has conceded two or more goals in every match.
- Except for once, Ukraine has registered three or more goals in every attempt.
- So far, Luxembourg has scored just a solitary goal in all of the ties.
Ukraine vs Luxembourg Prediction
Ukraine will look to extend their stay at the top, and considering Luxembourg is their closest competitor as of now, a win in this fixture will greatly help that objective.
The most important statistic that puts Ukraine as the firm favorites is their h2h ties against this opponent. The team won every single match against this rival so far, and have scored two or more goals in all of these games. In fact, except for the last tie, Ukraine has scored three or more goals in every attempt.
The sole goal in the just-concluded match is the only one that Luxembourg has scored in their h2h history.
Going on, the away form of Luxembourg is nothing but questionable, as well as unimpressive. They could manage just two wins from their last 17 tries on the road, and these two were against Malta and San Marino. At one point, this team had an active streak of seven straight losses, and in no way are they going to challenge Ukraine, who has an additional home advantage this Monday.
