EURO 2016: Germany vs Ukraine

Germany vs Ukraine Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second match in Group B, on EURO 2016, Germany take on Ukraine at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Germany vs Ukraine.


Germany qualified on EURO 2016 after they finished qualifications at the top of their qualifying group. Two years ago they showed quality when they won the World Cup trophy when they beat Argentina in the final. After qualifications German side played 5 friendly games, but they weren’t impressive. They beat Italy 4-1 and Hungary 2-0, while other three matches they lost. France 2-0, England 2-3 and Slovakia 1-3. Ok, I know, all those matches were friendly, but Germany played with pretty strong lineups. At the first look, the group C looks easy for them (Poland, Ukraine and Northern Ireland), but don’t forget that Poland beat Germany 2-0 in the qualifications, Ukraine have very good squad, while debut national team on EURO, Northern Ireland, didn’t lose in their last 12 matches in all competitions, including friendlies. German side have very strong squad, but I’m not sure that they are capable to lift the trophy in France.

Ukraine qualified on the European Championship after they eliminated Slovenia in the play-off. After that, in 2016, they have played four friendly matches and won all. Ukraine beat Cyprus and Wales with an identical results 1-0, while in the last two preparing matches they beat Romania 3-4 and Albania 1-3. All national teams are not in the top class, but Ukrainian side beat them all and with the good atmosphere in team waiting for their first match on this competition. They know that they are underdogs against Germany, but they have very good team and believe that they can reach the 1/8 finals.
