Ukraine vs Scotland: Our top betting tips

Ukraine lost to Scotland just a few days ago but it was pretty comprehensive too. Will they give a better account of themselves here? Find out with our Ukraine vs Scotland match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Scotland to win

Our first tip for this game sees us backing Scotland to win. They outclassed Ukraine just a few days ago and followed that up with another win on Saturday meaning they've won three games on the spin and four of their last five. As for Ukraine, they bounced back from that aforementioned Scotland loss in strong fashion as they hit Armenia for five. Regardless of that, they were so far off Scotland in that recent clash – and Scotland are in such a good vein of form – that we can't see past a win for Steve Clarke's men.

Expecting goals

Our next tip backs this game to go over the 2.5 goal mark. Ukraine have gone north of the 2.5 goal cut off in three of the last five games averaging 2.8 per game in that period. Scotland meanwhile have seen over 2.5 goals in each of their last four with a five game goals per match average of 3.2. With each of the last three head to head meetings between these nations also going over 2.5 goals this bet looks to carry some good value.

Will Ukraine take revenge for their recent loss?

These two locked horns in a World Cup playoff not long ago and whilst this game isn't that big, it is a match with plenty riding on it. A Ukraine win will see them top the group. Anything other than that will see Scotland win the group. Let's see how it plays out.

Ukraine will be keen to give a better account of themselves in this game compared that their previous loss against the Scots. They bounced back well against Armenia winning 5-0 so the only question that remains is will they go unchanged from their that comprehensive win? We think they probably will.

Ukraine Predicted lineup – Lunin, Mykolenko, Tymchyk, Kacharaba, Kryvtsov, Zabarnyi, Sydorchuk, Ignatenko, Yaremchuk, Zubkov, Tsygankov

Scotland are in some of the best form they've shown in years right now and they'll be keen to ensure that is rewarded with top spot in this group. A return to the same XI that took Ukraine apart in the last clash is likely – the one exception being right back Nathan Patterson who will miss out after coming off injured last time out.

Scotland Predicted lineup – Gordon, Hickey, McTominay, Hendry, McKenna, Tierney, Christie, Armstrong, McGinn, McGregor, Adams
