Betting Tip: Ukraine #1-0 @ 19/4 with betvictor

Michael O’Neill is an astute manager who steered Northern Ireland to top spot in their qualifying group against all the odds.

However, O’Neill is not a miracle worker and he defended his team’s tactics against Poland which saw them create few chances of note as they went down by a 1-0 scoreline.

In fairness, Northern Ireland did as well as they could possibly have expected, snuffing out the threat of Robert Lewandowski and only losing the match by a single goal against opponents with far more quality.

However, if the Northern Irish are to qualify for the last sixteen, it appears that they now need a victory against a Ukraine side who ran Germany relatively close in their opening match.

The Ukrainians were lively in attack and had chances to equalise after conceding early in the game. There has been a massive gamble on them to win the match as punters latch on to the fact that they are possibly on a par with Poland.

Therefore, it just comes down to whether Ukraine win by a 1-0 or a 2-0 scoreline, with Northern Ireland set to miss out on scoring again although there’s the possibility they could face a weakened Germany in their final game.

Much is expected of Steven Davis in the middle of the park although Ukraine have two dangerous wingers in Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka, with this set to make all the difference.
