Forecast and bet on Wales v Ukraine, stats, odds. On June 5, Wales will play against Ukraine in the 2022 World Cup qualifier. Who will get a trip to Qatar?
Exactly one year ago, the Welsh national team made a brilliant showing at UEFA EURO 2020, where they managed to beat Switzerland and Turkey in the group stage, but lost first place to the future champions. In the play-offs, the Welsh were already unable to resist a duel with Denmark (0-4) in the first leg.
The British team played very powerfully in the qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar. In eight rounds, Ryan Giggs’ side have recorded four wins and three draws, which have brought them 15 points and the second spot in the table. In the semi-final of the promotion to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the home side unexpectedly and easily defeated Austria 2-1.
In the first leg of the new Nations League season, the Dragons lost their away game to Poland (1-2). Kabango, who has an ankle injury, will not be able to play today.
A year ago, the Ukraine national team made a brilliant showing at UEFA EURO 2020, qualifying from the group stage, and even making the first leg of the play-offs. In the 1/8 finals, the Ukraine Blues beat Sweden in extra time, held on until the 120th minute, but a slip in concentration cost the team a place in the quarter-finals.
At this stage, the Ukraine national team was unable to offer any opposition to England, who played at their home Wembley Stadium, leaving Andriy Shevchenko and his charges no chance. By the way, following the tournament, Oleksandr Petrakov, who had been in charge of the Ukraine national team’s qualification for FIFA World Cup 2022, has been appointed the new head coach.
In eight rounds, the Ukrainian side recorded two wins and six draws, earning second place and a ticket to the interim stages. In the first leg in the British Isles North, the Ukraine national side looked very confident, emerging victorious against Scotland (3-1).
Wales were unable to hold on a few days ago in Poland, and the team did not look too good – probably because of fatigue after the end of the championships. The Ukraine national team were happy not only with the result, but also with the content, which will add to their motivation and good mood for this game. What’s more, the Yellow and Blue have not left the British Isles in recent weeks. We think that in this matchup the fight will be very serious, and we will give preference to the visitors, who are in excellent physical condition and have huge tournament motivation.
We’re thinking Asian handicap (0) over Ukraine and we’ll put our money on that at odds of 2.04 at 1xbet login.
We expect the game to be tight and viscous, which will result in a minimum of scoring chances and maximum saturation in defense. What’s more, a trip to Qatar is at stake, which might have an impact on the game’s scenario.
Our second bet is a one-goal win for Ukraine at 4.25
