Ukraine win

Ukraine will look to take advantage of Finland being easy to break down. After giving a good account against France, the game against the Finns will be relatively easier for Andriy Shevchenko’s men. Ukraine may not have won in the last four games, but home advantage and the defensive problems of their opposition could hand an easy home win.

Total goals over 2.5

Finland have shown a scoring touch which is a threat for Ukraine. Finland have three goals in the last two games, while Premier League striker Teemu Pukki is on a high after scoring a brace against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Ukraine have strong home record when it is about scoring goals and this record goes back a few years.

Both teams to score – yes

This prediction sees two teams which are on a good scoring run. The goals scored by Ukraine in the home matches have been very good, while Finland have been buoyed by the form of players like Pukki. The Norwich City forward has goals in his last three national team appearances.

Ukraine vs Finland: Match Preview and Team News

Ukraine

Ukraine are in need of three points to kickstart the campaign and a home game is a welcome relief for Andriy Shevchenko. The Ukraine manager has not seen his team lose too many home games of late. The home defeat against Germany is the only blemish for the team in several years. Shevchenko will be looking to make the most of this strength to pick up the first three points of the World Cup qualification group. Artem Besedin, Viktor Tsygankov, and Taras Stepanenko are missing due to injuries.

Finland

Markku Kanerva has an experienced line-up at his disposal. Despite an even performance against Bosnia, Finland had to settle for a point in their opening game. The failure to win the first game at home puts a decent amount of pressure on Finland, who have the offensive resources to be a threat to teams. Jere Uronen is one of the big absentees for Finland, who may also come without Onni Valakari after picking up a knock against Bosnia.
