We are going to explore 1xbet review for our betting odds for this fixture.
Football can sometimes be a cruel sport as Ukraine found out during their loss to the Netherlands in their first game of the tournament. The Ukrainian thought they had tied the game after coming from two goals down to level scores but a late goal condemned the Ukrainians to a defeat. Andriy Shevchenko’s team, however, made amends with a 2-1 win against hard fighting North Macedonia in their second group game.
In Andrey Yamolenko and Roman Yaremchuk, the Ukraine team possess two players who have developed a telepathic understanding with each other in this tournament as all four goals scored by Ukraine in this tournament have come from them, with either of the men boasting two goals each.
Shevchenko will be looking to replicate the fairytale run Ukraine had at the FIFA World Cup in 2006, when he, as captain of the national team led the team to the quarter-final before the loss to eventual champions Italy. Ukraine needs to avoid defeat against the Austrians to qualify for the second round due to a better goal scored, with both teams on 3 points apiece and the same goal difference.
It has been a good tournament for the Austrians, not only did they get their first win in the history of the competition courtesy of the 3-1 against North Macedonia but they also have an opportunity to qualify for the knockout stage for the first time ever. The Austrians came up short in their second match against the Netherlands after losing 2 goals to nil but they will be encouraged by their showing against the Dutch to get something from their last game against Ukraine.
Austria will be boosted by the return to action of Marco Arnautovic, the striker who missed the game against the Netherland due to a one-match suspension handed to him for insulting a North Macedonia player after scoring the last goal against North Macedonia. Captain fantastic, David Alaba, will look to banish the memory of conceding a penalty to the Dutch with a much-improved performance at both ends of the pitch.
A win for the Austrians against Ukraine means they will seal the second spot behind the already qualified Netherlands while a draw might be good enough for one of the best losers spots available in the tournament.
The Ukrainians have shown that they can mix it with the big boys with their performance in qualifying and against Netherlands in their opening Group C game. They have got some of the most talented players on the European scene and they will look to progress beyond the first round.
Prior to this tournament, Ukrainians have enjoyed a good form and given their showing so far, they are not likely to lose to the Austrians. So we are backing the Ukrainians to win or draw at 1.32 on 1xbet bonus.
For our second tip, we reckon both teams will score, as they will look to charge at each other. Given the set-up of the two sides, we expect the two teams to find the back of the net at 2.25 on 1xbet again. You can find more betting predictions for your use on our page free of charge.
