Euro 2016 – Qualifications: Ukraine vs Spain

Ukraine vs Spain Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match in Group C of the qualifications for the UEFA Euro 2016, Ukraine host Spain.

Ukraine stand at the 3rd position with the same number of points as Slovakia, but Slovakia have better score against Ukraine (0-0, 0-1). Home side have play-off in their pocket after they beat FYR Macedonia 0-2 three days ago, but they still have a chance to reach the second position and qualify on European championship directly. They have to beat Spain (they have already secured the first position), while Slovakia have to failed to beat Luxembourg. It will be very hard for Ukraine to qualified directly, but the hope is here and they still believe.

Spain have secured the top position in Group C and they will travel to France next year on Euro. After defeat in the second round against Slovakia 2-1, Spain have improved their performance and won 6 matches in a row. They smashed Luxembourg 4-0 and confirmed 1st position, so their coach Del Bosque will make many changes in team and give a chance to players who didn’t play too much in these qualifications.

Ukraine vs Spain injuries and suspensions

in home team Yevhen Khacheridi and Sergey Sydorchuk are both out due to suspension, but the good news for home side is that midfielder Taras Stepanenko after having been rested against FYR Macedonia.

Spain will be without several important players such as David Silva, Alvaro Morata, Koke, Bernat, Albiol, Diego Costa, Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal and Andres Iniesta.

Ukraine vs Spain possible lineups

Ukraine: Pyatov; Fedetskiy, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk; Rotan, Stepanenko, Garmash; Yarmolenko, Kravets, Konoplyanka.
Spain: De Gea; Mario, Nacho, Etxeita, Azpilicueta; Thiago, San Jose, Isco; Mata, Alcacer, Nolito.

Ukraine vs Spain Betting Tip and Predictions

Ukraine will be fully motivated to take three points and hope that Slovakia fail to beat Luxembourg away. Spain is one of the best European national teams, but with many changes in squad and mixed lineups, I don’t believe that they can beat Ukraine.
