Ukraine knocked out Sweden in the last round but need extra time and a one-man advantage to do so. Next up for Shevchenko's men is a trip to Rome to face an England side that will be buzzing following their 2-0 win over arch-rivals Germany in the last 16.

Ukraine vs England: Our Top Three Bets

Unbiased tips

All odds are subject to change but the prices shown are correct on the date of publication. Please check with your bookmakers before placing any bets. 

Tip 1: Win-to-Nil

England are yet to concede a single goal at Euro 2020 and will be confident they can shut out Ukraine in the quarter-finals. Ukraine have looked decent going forward but did fail to score in their final group game against Austria and are yet to come up against a side with such a strong defensive record like England. England haven't conceded a goal in any of their last six international matches and have won all bar one of those encounters.

Tip 2: Under 2.5 Goals

Five of the seven previous meetings between these two countries have produced under 2.5 goals, which includes each of their last four head-to-heads. Three of Ukraine's last six 90-minute matches have produced under 2.5 goals and the same can be said for each of England's last six fixtures, so you can see why we're not predicting there to be many goals in this game.

Tip 3: 1-0 England

England's last win against Ukraine was by one goal to nil and we're expecting another narrow victory for Southgate's men on Saturday. Ukraine's last defeat at Euro 2020, against Austria, arrived via a 1-0 scoreline and England have won four of their last six matches by that very same scoreline. England don't tend to score many goals but they are yet to concede any in this tournament, which makes a 1-0 correct score bet in their favour look like a sensible choice.

Ukraine vs England: Key stats, markets and odds

Team News

There are rumours circulating that Gareth Southgate could be on the verge of handing Jadon Sancho his first start of Euro 2020 and that Mason Mount could also make a return to the starting lineup after his period of self-isolation came to an end. What does this news mean for Bukayo Saka? The Arsenal youngster has been very impressive in his last two appearances, using his pace and dribbling ability to cause big problems for the opposition's defence. Well, we're hearing that the winger might have picked up a knock during training on Friday and that this might just be the reason he could drop to the bench for the game against Ukraine. If Mason Mount also starts the game then that could mean that England will play a back-four and the Chelsea man will replace one of the three centre-backs that featured in that famous win over Germany.

England the big favourites to conquer in Rome

Ukraine and Sweden finished 1-1 after 90-minutes, despite Shevchenko's men having the better of the play. The sending-off of Sweden centre-back Danielsson set Ukraine up for their extra-time victory as they piled on the pressure and eventually took the lead through Dovbyk. Ukraine know they face their toughest challenge yet against England but Shevchenko's side cannot be underestimated as they do have goals in them. Besedin, who was subbed on for Yaremchuk was the player on the end of Danielsson's red card challenge and now faces a race against time to be fit for the quarter-finals.

Southgate set up his England side perfectly against Germany and was able to enjoy a fantastic 2-0 victory. The game itself was fairly level throughout and in the end, it was decided by England's ability to convert their big chances and Germany;'s failure to do so. Pickford had another great game in goal and has proven once again that even when this England defence is penetrated, you still have to beat this in form shot-stopper. With Harry Kane finally off the mark and Sterling netting yet another goal, England will be very confident they can beat Ukraine but they will have to do so without the home advantage for the first time in the tournament.

Predicted Lineups

Ukraine moved to a 5-3-2 formation for the last 16 tie against Sweden with great success, dominating the game and eventually winning it in extra time, so this is how we expect them to start against England.

Bushchan (GK)

Karavaev (RWB) Zabarnyi (CB) Kryvtsov (CB) Matvienko (CB) Zinchenko (LWB)

Sydorchuk (CM) Stepanenko (CM) Shaparenko (CM)

Yarmolenko (ST) Yaremchuk (ST)

Picking the England formation and starting eleven could prove tricky. Despite scoring more than one goal in a game for the first time in the tournament and keeping yet another clean sheet in the last round, England will be expected to go a bit more attacking against Ukraine, perhaps switching from a 5-3-2 to a 4-5-1 in order to include the creativity of Grealish.

Pickford (GK)

James (RB) Stones (CB) Maguire (CB) Shaw (LB)

Rice (CM) Phillips (CM)

Sterling (RW) Grealish (AMC) Saka (LW)

Kane (ST)
