Serbia Prediction – Can Serbia make final push?

Sunday’s hosts, 3rd placed Serbia, will be desperate to make one final push in this second home match on the trot in Group B when they play host to group leaders, Ukraine, with just 1 point separating them from 2nd placed Portugal ahead of this final round of group matches.

However, it may not matter what Serbia achieve this Sunday as Portugal take on second from bottom nation, Luxembourg, who have gained only 4 points throughout these Euro 2020 qualifiers and Serbia’s hopes of them beating Portugal may well be dashed.

Back to Serbia though and the hosts bring a 3-match winning streak into this clash having recorded wins against Luxembourg 3-1 away, a 2-1 win at Lithuania and their recent 3-2 home win against Luxembourg.

An overall home record of 2-0-1 9/7 in this campaign though hides Serbia’s inconsistent streak at home in previous Euro qualifiers as the hosts have won just 5 of their last 12 matches played at this level, while losing all of the previous 5 meetings against Ukraine.

Ukraine Prediction – Can Ukraine remain undefeated?

Onto Ukraine, and the visitors sit top of Group B and 5 points clear of former European Championship holders, Portugal, prior to this final round of matches in the group stages, no doubt looking to preserve their unbeaten tag in this encounter.

It’s been an extremely successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign for Ukraine who were expected to challenge Portugal and Serbia for a top two finish in the group, but they’ve exceeded all expectations by holding a significant 5-point lead at the top of the group prior to this final fixture.

Ukraine bring an impressive 6-match winning streak into this final fixture having scored a total of 15 goals and conceding just 2 in reply, and this winning sequence includes notable wins over Serbia 5-0 at home as well as holding Portugal to a 0-0 draw away and then winning the corresponding fixture 2-1 at home last time out.

The visitors have also produced some solid displays and results on the road too in Euro qualifiers as Ukraine have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 9 matches on their travels, a run that includes wins at Belarus and North Macedonia as well as draws at Slovakia and Portugal.


Key-Facts – Serbia vs Ukraine

  • Serbia have won their last 3 matches on the trot in Group B
  • Ukraine have won their last 6 matches on the trot in Group B
  • Ukraine have won all of the previous 5 meetings against Serbia


Betting Tips Verdict

Serbia have it all to do and may need to take risks here while Ukraine will just be keen to avoid defeat which would suit us nicely.
