In the first match in Group C in qualifications for the UEFA Euro 2016 which will take place in France, Ukraine will host Slovakia.
In this group, Spain and Ukraine are the main favorites to qualify directly on Euro 2016.
Ukraine failed to qualify at FIFA World Cup 2014, after they have been eliminated in play-off against France. They were at the second position in Group H, with only one point less than England and played in play-off against France. In the first match they had a good advantage of 2-0, but French national team beat them in the second leg 3-0 and went on WC.
Ukrainian main goal is to qualify on EURO 2016. They are playing very good football, especially at home. Ukraine didn’t lose in their last 10 home matches at home (8-2-0).
Defender Khacheridi and midfielder and captain Tymoschuck are both out.
Slovakia have a decent squad and IMO they have a quality to reach the 3rd position in Group and qualify in play-off.
Slovakia also have some problems with injuries. Very important central defender Martin Skrtel is out due to injury, while midfielder Marek Hamsik is doubtful.
Those two national teams met four times and Ukraine is undefeated (2-2-0).
I expect home win.
Ukraine vs Slovakia Betting Tip: 1 @ 1.67 (Bet365)
