Ukraine v Iceland: Prediction, Tips and Odds

A place at this summer's Euros in Germany is at stake at the Wroclaw Stadium, Poland on Tuesday, when Ukraine take on Iceland in the Path B play-off final.

Ukraine struck two late goals to edge past Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-1 in the semi-finals, while Iceland overcame an early setback before romping to a 4-1 success over Israel.

The Blue and Yellow are aiming to reach the main draw of the Euros for the fourth tournament in a row, while Our Boys are looking to make their second appearance after a run to the quarters on their debut in 2016.

Ukraine v Iceland betting tips and predictions

Ukraine to win and both teams to score - 11/4

Iceland showed good character to come from 1-0 down in Budapest to eventually steamroll Israel 4-1 last time out, a result that extended their winning streak to three matches.

Age Hareide's side will be brimming with confidence after that convincing victory, but Ukraine are a different beast and Our Boys may fall at the final hurdle to make the spectacle in Germany.

Iceland won just three of their Group J qualifying matches, with two of those coming against a Liechtenstein outfit who ended up bottom with zero points and a lack of depth in the squad has been highlighted on several occasions.

Ukraine performed admirably in qualifying Group C, finishing level on points with second-placed Italy and only missing out on an automatic route through due to their inferior head-to-head record.

The fact the Blue and Yellow had to dig deep to overcome Bosnia last time out should serve them well, as they will be experienced and fully focused on this challenge.

Serhiy Rebrov's side have had no problems in attack, having failed to score in just one of their last nine assignments, but they have conceded in six of those contests and defence is arguably the weakest part of their squad.

This should give Iceland hope they can trouble Ukraine's backline and Our Boys have been impressing in attack, failing to net in just one of their last nine encounters.

Artem Dovbyk to score anytime - 7/4

A lot of Ukraine's scoring responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Artem Dovbyk, who is enjoying a solid season with La Liga outfit Girona and has been able to transfer that form onto the international stage.

The 26-year-old has scored 14 goals in 27 league appearances, helping Girona to third in the standings, while he bagged the winner against Bosnia last time out.

Dovbyk has found the back of the net two times in his last three outings for his country and he can continue his fine form by firing his side to Germany.

Albert Gudmundsson to have over 0.5 shots on target - 4/5

Iceland also have their attacking threats and one of those is Albert Gudmundsson, who notched a hat-trick to send Israel packing in the semi-finals.

The 26-year-old has been impressing for club side Genoa this term, scoring 10 Serie A goals, and there is every chance he can hit the target at least once on Tuesday.

Gudmundsson has four strikes from his last three appearances for club and country, and it is hard to ignore the 4/5 available on him to have over 0.5 shots on target.
