Ukraine vs Portugal Match Preview
Portugal travel to Ukraine for their Matchday 8 clash on Monday evening on the back of a five-match winning streak, where they made a great step towards a top 2 spot and now have a four-point gap to the 3rd placed Serbia. Still, they’ll want to take the pressure off late in the campaign and points in Kyiv will be important for Fernando Santos.
A Selecao das Quinas have built on their Nations League success and beat Serbia (2-4) in a six-goal thriller and went on to earn comfortable wins over Lithuania (1-5) and Luxembourg (3-0). This promises them in a great mood at NSK Olimpijs’kyj with a great challenge for the Group B pace-setters looming.
However, Ukraine have a lot to show off themselves, having earned five wins and a draw (0-0 in Portugal) in six EURO 2020 Qualifiers outings so far. They’ve been in great shape up front and bagged 13 goals along the way but more impressive will be their defensive tally, where they conceded just a single goal.
Andriy Shevchenko’s men still have a lot to prove but they’ve been in a great place and we do see them showing off as a tough nut to crack once again, despite being rated the underdogs. They’ve beaten Lithuania (2-0) on Friday with a brace from Ruslan Malinovskiy and we now hope to see more of the same.
We will thus stick with Ukraine to keep hold of their lengthy unbeaten streak here and we’ll go for an enticing Double Chance – Home win or Draw, which comes at 8/11 with Coral and looks like great value despite Portugal’s rediscovered consistency across competitions.
We should be in for goals and Ukraine will have to cope if they’re to earn any points. With that in mind, we’re also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/5 with bet365 which has been rated a solid approach to the fixture by many in the know as well.
