Betting prediction: Ukraine 1-0 North Macedonia


Thursday’s match is a crucial one for Ukraine and North Macedonia, after they both lost their opening matches in Group C.

Having gone toe-to-toe with the Netherlands for much of the game, Ukraine will be confident of their chances against the tournament minnows.

Ukraine have lost only one of their last seven games.

Another defeat for either side on Thursday would not necessarily spell the end of the road at in this competition, as a third-placed finish would still be possible.

At Euro 2020, the four best third-placed teams from the six groups will also advance to the knockout stage of the competition.

Recommended Ukraine vs North Macedonia betting tips

Under 2.5 goals. Five of Ukraine’s last seven matches have produced fewer than three goals.


Andriy Yarmolenko to score first. The West Ham midfielder has an excellent scoring record for Ukraine, with 41 goals in 95 caps.

Ukraine vs North Macedonia betting tips: Match preview

Matchday two of Euro 2020 sees Ukraine take on tournament debutants North Macedonia in Bucharest on Thursday afternoon.

Ukraine came agonisingly close to taking a point from their Group C opener against the Netherlands, only for a late Denzel Dumfries goal to break their hearts.

Andriy Shevchenko’s side were 2-0 down before the hour mark, but managed to get back on level terms thanks to goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk. Ukraine looked like holding on for the draw before the Netherlands retook the lead with five minutes to play.

Prior to Sunday’s defeat, Ukraine had gone six games unbeaten – including an away draw against world champions France. Ukraine had also kept two consecutive clean sheets.

A great moment for Goran Pandev

North Macedonia put in a valiant effort in what was their maiden game at a major tournament. After going behind early on, forward Goran Pandev equalised for Macedonia.

It was a fitting moment that their veteran captain, and all-time leading goalscorer and appearance maker should be the scorer of their first-ever goal at a major tournament. In doing so, Pandev became the second-oldest goalscorer in Euros history.

Macedonia were unable to hold on and conceded two late goals.

North Macedonia’s defeat to Austria ended a run of four matches without defeat, including an incredible 2-1 win over Germany in March.

Ukraine have never made it past the group stage at a European Championship. In fact, they’ve only won one of their previous seven matches at the finals, back in 2012 as co-hosts of the tournament.


Macedonia and Ukraine have faced each other four times previously. Ukraine won their most recent meeting 2-0 in 2015.

The other match in Group C between Austria and Netherlands takes place on Thursday evening. The winner of that match will confirm their spot in the knockout phase.

Macedonia’s final group game takes place on Monday evening against the Netherlands in Amsterdam, while Ukraine face Austria in Bucharest. Both matches will kick-off simultaneously.

Ukraine team news vs North Macedonia

Oleksandr Zubkov was forced off early on against the Netherlands and is unlikely to feature. Man City wing-back Oleksandr Zinchenko could move into a more advanced role in Zubkov’s absence.

Alternatively, one of Marlos or Viktor Tsygankov could also come into the starting eleven.

Eighteen-year-old Ilya Zabarnyi partnered Mykola Matviyenko at centre-back against the Netherlands and should continue on Thursday.

North Macedonia team news vs Ukraine

Igor Angelovski is likely to field the same starting eleven that faced Austria.

Ilija Nestorovski is unavailable for Macedonia.
