Ukraine and Austria meet in the National Arena Bucharest in Hungary on Monday for the final round of matches in Group C of Euro 2020.

This is only the third time these nations have met in international men’s football and the first in competitive action. The previous two matches were both friendlies with the nations trading home wins by a 1-goal margin in each instance.

With a point likely being enough to ensure both nations proceed to the knockout rounds, 101 Great Goals’ prediction is Ukraine 2 – 2 Austria.

Ukraine have drawn four of their last nine games, while Austria only have 1 win in 8 Euro matches.

Ukraine won the first-ever match between these nations back in 2011.

Austria won the last match in this head-to-head back in 2012.

Euro 2020 Group C: Path to qualification

Regardless of the outcome of the final round of matches, the Netherlands will win Group C and North Macedonia will finish bottom of the group.

A win or draw here would be enough for Ukraine to finish second guaranteeing a place in the final 16. A defeat would see Ukraine need favours from elsewhere to still qualify as one of the four best 3rd placed sides with 3 points.

Austria must beat Ukraine here to finish second in the group. A draw would almost certainly see them go through as one of the best 3rd placed sides. They may even stay in the competition if defeated, although it would require favours from the other Groups.

Ukraine vs Austria betting tips: Match preview

“The Disgrace of Gijón” was a 1982 World Cup match in which Austria were defeated 1-0 by Germany. The result happened to be the perfect result for both teams to qualify for the next round of the competition.

Germany took a 10th-minute lead, after which both teams took it in turns to keep possession of the ball in their own half, rarely threatening each other’s goal. The few shots they did muster were comically inaccurate highlighting their intent to keep the score at 1-0.

Austria comes into their final Group C match in a similar situation to the one in 1982. While not mathematically certain yet, a point here for both teams likely guarantees both a place in the Round of 16. While we are unlikely to see anything like Gijón ’82 on a pitch again, neutrals will be hoping this doesn’t produce a dull match with either team committing numbers to their attack or taking any risk on the ball.

The return of Marko Arnautovic is another side-story in this match for Austria. After scoring against North Macedonia in Austria’s opening match, the 32-year-old former West Ham forward was seen angrily directing a tirade at one of the opponents, Ezgjan Alioski, before his captain David Alaba grabbed him by the mouth to silence him.

After serving the 1-match suspension handed down by UEFA, he is expected to start here. Although, Franco Foda could send a message to his team about discipline by keeping the volatile forward on the bench here.

Foda also has the David Alaba conundrum to solve here. In the past, it was not uncommon to see a star player in a sweeper role, mopping up attacks that the defence had failed to deal with. Then, when his side regains possession, striding up the pitch to support the midfield and even attack.

In 2000, when FIFA created the Player of the Century award, Franz Beckenbauer and Lothar Matthaus were the only defenders in the top 20. The pair were both hailed for their performances as a sweeper for Germany in different eras.

However, Alaba’s use as the middle central defender in a three isn’t a throw-back to those legends of the past and using him as such is really limiting his impact on games for Austria. In both matches, it isn’t until he has been moved to a left-central defensive role that he has been able to move up the pitch with the ball and have any real impact for Austria in the buildup or penetration phases of play.

Despite the talent Austria have through the middle of the pitch, Ukraine should come into this match as favourites. They have lost just 1 of their last 10 matches, which was a narrow 3-2 defeat to the Netherlands due to a late goal from the Dutch right-back Denzel Dumfries.

We have also seen plenty of goals from Ukraine in the European Championships, with at least 2 goals scored in each of their last 6 games. For this reason, we are ignoring the fears of this being a dead-rubber and opting for an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Ukraine team news vs Austria

Oleksandr Zubkov is Ukraine’s only injury doubt with a slight muscle strain. This means Taras Stepanenko likely continues in midfield allowing Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovsky to play a more attacking role.

Following his yellow card against North Macedonia, Mykola Shaparenko runs the risk of missing Ukraine’s Round of 16 match, should they make it that far.

Serhiy Sydorchuk also needs to be careful here having been booked in Ukraine’s opening game against the Netherlands.

Viktor Tsigankov impressed in his brief cameo against North Macedonia. He could be an option should Andriy Shevchenko look to freshen up his attacking trio.

Austria team news vs Ukraine

Arnautovic (above) returns after a one-match suspension for using insulting language in the match against North Macedonia.

Sasa Kalajdzic is also tipped to return to the starting XI for Austria. The question is whether he will partner Arnautovic in attack, or if one of the pair will need to begin the match on the bench. Either way, Michael Gregoritsch is expected to lose his place in the lineup.

Austria also have players walking the tightrope this match to avoid a suspension for the Round of 16. Daniel Bachmann, David Alaba and Stefan Lainer all start this match knowing a booking against Ukraine will see them sit out Austria’s next match in the competition if they have one.
