Ukraine vs Slovakia Predictions and Match Preview

Ukraine vs Slovakia
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday 9th September 2018
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Arena Lviv (Ukraine).

This weekend sees the start of a new competition in European football- the Uefa Nations League which will be replacing friendlies and make the football more competitive.

Ukraine will take on Slovakia at home in their first match and they have been installed as the even favourites to win this game with Slovakia seen as the clear outsiders at odds of around 11/4.

Ukraine have been in good form where they haven’t lost in their last 6 games. This includes already winning in this competition a few days ago when they overcame Czech Republic by 2-1 away from home. In June they beat Albania 4-1 and before that they drew with Morocco 0-0 and beat Japan 2-1.

Slovakia have only lost 1 game from their last five which was against Morocco. But they raised some eyebrows in May when in a friendly they drew 1-1 against the Netherlands. Their last match took place this month at home against Denmark and they ran out 3-0 winners.

Ukraine vs Slovakia: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met was last November where Ukraine at home won 2-1.
  • From recent games there is a 66% chance to see under 3 goals.

Ukraine vs Slovakia v: Prediction

Ukraine already have one win in the Nations League and victory here would set them on course for the knockout stages. This match though could be closer than most people think because Slovakia do have a lot of quality in their side.

However Ukraine are unbeaten for the last 18 months and are at home, plus they were very impressive away to Czech Republic. They deserve our respect and are a great price to win at home. We can expect that they will have domination of the ball and have many attacking chances.
