Match preview

The race for promotion from Group A1 is hotting up, as the top two go head-to-head in Glasgow.

Just 112 days ago, these two met at Hampden in the World Cup play-off semi-finals.

Ukraine proved to be simply to good, prevailing 3-1, before falling to Wales in the final four days later.

Now, attention turns to the UEFA Nations League, so will this one go the same way?

Despite just missing out on a World Cup place in Cardiff, Ukraine then responded brilliantly in this competition.

Oleksandr Petrakov’s team beat Ireland away and Armenia at home, before being held to a 1-1 draw by the former in Łódź.

Without doubt, the Blue and Yellows are the most talented team in this group, chasing an immediate return to League A.

However, without injured talisman Oleksandr Zinchenko, will Ukraine still be too strong for Scotland?

As for the Tartan Army, they’d won six successive competitive matches, doing so for the first time since 1930, before being dumped out those aforementioned play-offs in June.

After that, Steve Clarke’s team beat Armenia both home and away, but slumped to a lifeless, concerning 3-0 defeat in Dublin in-between.

This means the Dark Blues kick off one point below their visitors; the two meet again in Kraków in just six days time.

So, if Scotland harbour any realistic hopes of pipping Ukraine to promotion, this might be must win, and is certainly must not lose.

Will a sold-out Hampden be celebrating a home victory?
