Serbia vs Ukraine Betting Tips – Euro 2020 Qualifiers, 17th November 2.00pm

Serbia may have one eye on the playoff route to Euro 2020 now. Even though they can still mathematically qualify directly, it doesn’t look too realistic that they will. To do that they have to beat Ukraine while they would also need Luxembourg to do them a favour by denying Portugal a win on the night. It probably won’t happen. Read our predictions for Serbia vs Ukraine.

Serbia News and Form – Can Serbia sign off with a win?

It has been so near and yet so far for Serbia. The door isn’t totally shut on their qualification hopes, but realistically they are not going to get there. Not unless something seriously dramatic happens. It was a 3-2 home win over Luxembourg that Serbia took on Thursday to stay in touch with second-placed Portugal. To go through, not only do they have to beat the group winners Ukraine, which isn’t going to be easy, but they will need Portugal not to beat Luxembourg.

It is a four-match winning streak that Serbia find themselves on (competitive and friendly) and they have collected a victory in each of their last three qualifiers. They have picked up a W2 L1 record on home soil, the loss happening against Portugal. Serbia’s three home games in the qualification group have all made it over 3.5 goals. Serbia have taken five wins in their last six home games (competitive and friendly) can they grab those points against Ukraine?

Ukraine News and Form – Can Ukraine avoid defeat in Serbia?

It was a 1-0 home win over Estonia that Ukraine took on Thursday in what was an international friendly. They have already won this qualification group with plenty of room to spare. It is a ten-match undefeated streak of form (competitive and friendly) that Ukraine are currently on and they look a very strong unit at the moment. Ukraine have taken a W2 D1 record on the road in this campaign, the draw happening in Portugal.

It has only been one loss suffered by Ukraine in their last nine European Championship road qualifiers. It is a W3 D3 record that they have taken from their last six fixtures. Nothing is riding for them on this game, but you still have to consider how well they have played, the great momentum they have and the fact that they have only conceded two goals so far in this group, and it is hard to see them getting beaten.

Serbia vs Ukraine Predictions

Draw: Ukraine look good enough, even without them having anything riding on this game to avoid defeat in Serbia. The Serbians have to throw the kitchen sink at this one, but it still may not be enough at the end of the day in terms of automatic qualification. Back the defence of Ukraine to hold out. Draw.
