Ukraine national team is coming to visit the national team of Finland within the sixth round of the 2018 World Cup qualification tournament. The Ukrainian team approaches the match as the clear favorite in the couple, but considering the result of the friendly match against Malta, which was held very recently, one does not really believe in the Cossacks’ success. However, the Finnish team is also far from its best shape. Suomi didn’t manage to defeat weak Liechtenstein at their home ground on 7th June, therefore none of the competitors bring positive to the table.
The Finland national team doesn’t claim anything anymore in the current World Cup qualification. The team has only one point in the asset after five played rounds and occupies the fifth place in the peloton. The future host has not won at their home ground since September 2015, when they were stronger, than the Faroe isles national team.
Unlike the Finnish team, Ukraine national team managed to gain eight points after five played round in the WC qualification. The team is situated on the third position in the peloton, losing to Croats five points and being two points behind Iceland. It is very hard to fight against the Balkans. The Croatian national team is noticeably stronger by its squad, but the Ukrainians probably can fight against the Northerners for the second place and a spot in the play-offs.
Both Finnish and Ukrainian sides are lower football teams, and one should probably not expect the upper football, therefore a bet on a total under looks as the perfect option in this couple. Besides, the Finnish national team has even forgotten, when it last won at its home ground.
Prediction for the match: under 2.5 goals in the match.
