Exciting times for Ukraine as a football nation with the EC coming up. The U21 national team are fighting to play in their own U21 European Championship.
At the moment they are 4th in the standings but they have played 2 games less then the group leaders Slovenia U21.
A week ago they took Swedens U21 apart 6-0 and are now matching up against one of the weaker teams in the qualies Lithuania U21 who have scored least in the group, even Malta U21 have scored more. Ukraine U21 have scored 11, only leaders Slovenia have scored more.
At home Ukraine won this fixture 2-0 but the scoreline could and should have been more, and the guests rarely threathened.
Ukraine are on a high coming into this one, and concidering the 1st place in the group looks out of reach, they need to finish second as 4 runners up with the best record against the teams under them in their respective group will go into play offs. As Lithuania are under Ukraine they need a big result against one of the poorest teams and they should get it after beating the Swedes by 6 goals.
I expect this match to come easy to win but I suggest bet on which Ukrainians will score 2 or more goals.
