The final round of games in Group B1 take place on Tuesday evening, as the nation promoted to League A will be determined. Scotland have the points advantage coming into the fixture, but Ukraine will be the nation playing at home. However, the fixture will be played in Poland due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Before Betting On Ukraine vs Scotland
Scotland come into this fixture looking to gain promotion in the Nations League for the first time. They have enjoyed an excellent campaign to this point, as they sit two points clear of Ukraine, who is second. The Scots have won four of the five games that they have played, and are the highest-scorers in Group B1.
Scotland has won their previous three fixtures in the Nations League, which included a massive victory over the weekend to keep their destiny in their own hands. That success came against rivals Republic of Ireland, with the Scots eventually able to edge towards a 2-1 success. The winning goal was scored in the 82nd minute by Ryan Christie, while Jack Hendry had equalised earlier in the match after John Egan had put the Irish ahead.
The task for Ukraine this week is very simple, as they will be aware that anything than a victory will be enough for Scotland to top the group. They have played extremely well throughout the competition to this point, winning three of the five games that they have played. They also boast the best goals against record, having allowed just four.
This is a rematch between the nations following their World Cup playoff last year, which was won 3-1 by Ukraine. However, Scotland won the first match between the nations in the Nations League earlier this year 3-0.
