Betting tips Scotland vs Ukraine

Hampden Park plays host to a huge occasion on Wednesday as Scotland takes on Ukraine in the semi-final of the WC European play-offs.

A place in the World Cup finals is up for grabs this week with the winners of this tie heading to Wales on Sunday for a do or die playoff tie in Cardiff.

However, before all of that, Scotland and Ukraine lock horns on Wednesday in what promises to be a tight and tense occasion in front of a packed Hampden crowd.

Given the circumstances of this fixture, plenty of emotion will surround the return to sporting action of Ukraine with this tie initially postponed due to the Russian invasion earlier this year. 

Sadly, while the war continues, Ukraine will be desperate to give their people something to cheer about and while Scotland might have been favourites had this tie taken place earlier this year, we now expected an intensely emotional occasion and much depends on which set of players can handle those circumstances the better.

Scotland comes into this fixture in great form though, winning 6 and drawing 2 of their last 8 however Ukraine have also performed well over the past year and comes into this showdown unbeaten in their last 7 competitive fixtures although 5 of those matches ended as draws. 

Ultimately, with so much at stake, we expect goals to be at a premium and with little to choose between the teams, we expect this fixture to go the distance and a draw seems likely with extra time and potentially penalties required to settle the score.

Final score 1:1
