Ukraine vs Austria
Euro 2020 – Monday 21st June 17.00
It’s Ukraine vs Austria in the final round of matches in Group C at Euro 2020. We take a look at the stats and best football tips.
Ukraine face Austria on Monday in an intriguing game between two sides both on three points. The two teams have quite surprisingly never met before in international football.
Netherlands and North Macedonia make up the group and Netherlands are currently in the lead. The bookies rate Ukraine to win at 9/4, the draw at Evens and Austria are 5/2 suggesting the bookies think both will be happy with a draw and a place in the knockout round with four points enough to take a third place spot.
Both teams have won one and lost one, beating North Macedonia and losing to Netherlands.
Ukraine – PL 8 | Won 6 | GF 17 | GA 4
The Ukraine have been involved in plenty of goals with them seeing 8 so far in a 2-3 loss to Netherlands and a 2-1 win over North Macedonia. The Ukraine came into the tournament in red hot form and won a qualification group which included a Portugal side that they beat at home and drew with away. They also drew 1-1 with France and the Netherlands defeat was their first in 15 games. They hit 17 shots against North Macedonia and won 5 corners. It is hard to gauge motivation for this one with a draw suiting both.
Goalscorers and Shots on Target:
- Roman Yaremchuk – 4 goals in 5 appearances & 2.36 SOT per 90
- Ruslan Malinovskyi – 3 goals in 6 appearances & 1.37 SOT per 90
Austria – PL 10 | Won 6 | GF 19 | GA 9
The Austrians got off to a good start wining 3-1 against North Macedonia. They left it quite late with the score still 1-1 until a 78th minute Gregoritsch goal and then Arnautovic added just before the 90 minute mark. Austria had 63% of possession, hit 6 shots on target and won four corners. Against the Netherlands they only managed 1 shot on target but did keep 53% of possession and won 5 corners. The Netherlands only really did what they had to and never really had any concerns. Austria have won 8 of their last 16 matches but do seem to struggle when they step up in class having lost to England, Denmark and Poland but beating the teams ranked lower than them.
- Marko Arnautović – 4 goals in 6 appearance & 2.56 SOT per 90
- Marcel Sabitzer – 2 goals in 7 appearance & 1.48 SOT per 90
Betting Tips: The bookies have gone short on the draw and that says it all for me.
