For the majority of their opening Euro 2020 contest, Ukraine looked up against it and with a possession count of just 39% and an xG of 0.53, they were expected to begin the tournament with a convincing defeat.
However, Andriy Schevchenko’s side came into the game and rallied for a ten minute spell to level matters. Despite their late efforts, they couldn’t keep the Netherlands off the score-sheet for a third time and they now know the importance of winning this game. Ukraine have been typically hard to beat and they although they’ve got a few injury concerns, at a price of 4/6, they will be expected to win this one.
North Macedonia were second best against Austria in their Euro 2020 opener, and as a result, they have nothing to lose coming into this contest. They play with plenty of spirit and they do show the odds flash of quality, however, with just two of their seven shots landing on target, they must be more clinical in the final third.
Ukraine showed enough on Sunday night so suggest they can win this, and they should be able to do it fairly comfortably.
