Ukraine – Cyprus
Ukraine round off their preparations for Euro 2020 with a final friendly battle against Cyprus at the Metalist Stadium on Monday evening. The hosts ended a seven-game winless run by overcoming Northern Ireland 1-0 last time out, whereas Cyprus suffered defeat by the same scoreline to Hungary. Shevchenko’s side must prepare for battle with group favourites Netherlands on the opening matchday of this year’s tournament.
Two crushing victories over the international whipping boys San Marino were Cyprus’ only saving graces during their European qualification period, and they have yet to establish themselves as a real force to be reckoned with. With no Euro 2020 campaign to worry about, Kostenoglou’s men have no reason to play in a conservative manner as they attempt to derail Ukraine’s preparations for the tournament, but the visitors have not won away from home since beating Kazakhstan 2-1 in October 2019.
Our prediction is a win for Ukraine and under 2,5 goals.
This match will be played on 07/06/2021 at 15:00.
