Reason for Ukraine vs Finland Predictions
Encouraged by the draw with France, Ukraine will strive to give fans another reason to celebrate when they oppose Finland in Kyiv. Andriy Shevchenko’s soldiers showed character in the introductory match of their qualifying campaign for the World Cup, while ace Man Zinchenko proved his worth once again. Given the portrayal of Ukraine in the draw with Les Tricolores, Shevchenko is unlikely to change the starting lineup. Arguably the most exciting Ukrainian player at the moment, Andriy Yarmolenko is the 26-year-old forward who can play wide as a winger and fill in numerous positions in attack. Over the past few years, there has been a gathering feeling that the player has outgrown the Ukrainian League and that with the player surpassing the 200-game mark for Dynamo Kyiv, he should be heading west to Europe’s brighter stage. He shows great games in West Ham. Sergiy Sydorchuk is a great player, and he works a lot on the field. He plays without mistakes, all praise for him.
On the other hand, Finland shared the spoils with Bosnia (2-2) in their opener, with Teemu Pukki scoring a brace. Union Berlin forward Joel Pohjanpalo is pushing for a start for the visitors. You should know that Ukraine defeated Finland 2-1 in the previous meeting between the two sides in a competitive match. Finland has five wins in the last nine games, while four of the eight games have produced clean sheets. They really need a good start and fine run in the World Cup qualification matches. Their last 11 have produced just two wins, but they head here unbeaten in the previous four. Across all competitions, Finland has lost just three of their 18 home matches and won 13. In what will pass as a marked improvement for Finland, they’ve beaten France, Bulgaria, and Ireland in their recent games. Joni Kauko enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. Teemu Pukki is the engine of this team. He goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and can be satisfied with his games.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
