On Tuesday, March 26, within the frame of the final playoff round for Euro 2024 qualification, the Ukrainian national team will face Iceland’s national team. Sergey Rebrov's charges managed a difficult victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina with a score of 1:2 in the semi-finals, while their Scandinavian opponents easily crushed Israel (1:4).

Predicted Lineups

Ukraine: Lunin; Konoplya, Zabarnyi, Matvienko, Mykolenko; Zinchenko, Brazhko; Zubkov, Sudakov, Mudryk; Dovbyk.
Iceland: Valdimarsson; Palsson, Ingason, Gretarsson, Thorarinsson; Thorsteinsson, Johannesson, Haraldsson, Willumsson; Gudmundsson, Oskarsson.

Stadium

The match will take place in Wrocław at its namesake stadium.

Ukraine

Ukraine, the quarterfinalist of the European championship held 3 years ago, hasn't yet secured its ticket to the final part of the tournament, which will take place in Germany in June. It's worth noting that in the qualification tournament, the Yellow-Blues only managed to take the 3rd place in their group, succumbing to England and Italy, but beating North Macedonia and Malta. Only a successful performance in the last Nations League earned the nominal hosts a spot in the playoffs.

Last Thursday, the Ukrainians managed to overturn the course of the duel with Bosnia and Herzegovina, securing a victory with a score of 1:2 in the semi-final of the qualification playoffs: Roman Yaremchuk brought parity to the scoreboard in the 85th minute, and assisted Artem Dovbyk in the 88th minute. Prior to this, Sergey Rebrov's charges beat North Macedonia (2:0) and Malta (1:3), and also drew with Italy (0:0). 

Iceland

On the other hand, Iceland is looking to return to the Euro competition after missing out on the previous continental championship in 2021. At least, the Scandinavian team has all the opportunities to do so after defeating Israel in the semi-finals of the playoff qualification on Thursday evening (1:4). The Blue-Whites pulled ahead thanks to a precise strike from Eran Zahavi, but fell victim to a hat-trick by Albert Gudmundsson, with another goal on account of Arnor Ingvi Traustason.

However, the Tricolored did not excel too much in the qualification tournament, finishing 4th in the group after Portugal, Slovakia, and Luxembourg and only ahead of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Liechtenstein. In November, the Scandinavians were defeated by Slovakia (4:2) and Portugal (2:0), but thanks to victories over Honduras and Guatemala in January's friendly meetings, the "Vikings" could take four games in a row for the first time since October 2014. 

Head-to-Head

In September 2017, the Icelanders won 0:2 in the qualification tournament for the 2018 World Cup in Ukraine, and two out of three previous face-offs between these teams ended in a 0:0 draw.

Match Prediction: Ukraine – Iceland

Ukraine boasts a significantly more superior squad, with practically every position filled by a representative of a top-5 European league. Iceland had a poor performance in the qualification tournament, and only the poor form of Team Israel enabled them to enter this qualification round. No surpises expected here; my bet is on an emphatic victory for the nominal hosts.

Total Prediction

The Ukrainian national team commands a truly star-studded attack: available are Tsygankov, Yaremchuk, Mudryk, and Dovbyk. The Icelanders are not known for their defensive prowess, therefore I am wagering for the ITO (Individual Total Over) of the favourite to exceed 1.5 goals.

Corner Prediction

With the support of the home crowd, Ukraine will play proactive football holding the initiative - I'm betting on their winning in terms of corners with the handicap -1.5.

Yellow Cards Prediction

Icelanders are inferior to their opponents in terms of skill and will be forced to foul more frequently, slowing the pace of their opposition's attacks. The visitors will take the yellow cards count.

Score Prediction

I'm betting on the exact score of 2:0 in favour of the Ukrainian national team.
