Ukraine vs Serbia
Date: Tuesday, 15th November 2016
Kick Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: OSC Metalist Stadium, Kharkiv, Ukraine.
Ukraine got an important win in their World Cup qualifying group with a narrow victory over Finland which moved them into 2nd place in the standings. That result also meant that they have gone 4 matches unbeaten with two draws and two wins respectively. They have also kept two clean sheets in a row.
Serbia scored in the final stages of their away match against Wales to earn a 1-1 draw and dent the Welsh’s hopes of World Cup qualification for the first time since 1958. They have also recently beat Austria and Moldova and from their last six matches have lost just once.
The draw over Wales meant they leap frogged them into 2nd position in their World Cup group. It’s fair to say that both nations come into this friendly fixture in good spirits and good form.
Ukraine vs Serbia: Head-to-head Stats
These two nations have played just two times and Ukraine has won both fixtures. The first at home ended 2-0 and the second in Serbia ended 1-0. This means that Serbia has never scored against Ukraine and we have never seen three of more goals.
Ukraine vs Serbia: Predictions
This should be a tight match with hardly anything in it. Serbia will want to put a poor record to bed and overcome Ukraine. First they need to score which they have been very good at, getting goals in five out of their six matches. The only time they failed to score was away to Qatar. Ukraine will want to keep it tight in defence. The overall result is hard to predict so half time markets look best suited to this match.
