Ukraine victory

Ukraine were relatively impressive in the Euro 2020 and they should have more than enough firepower to overcome a Kazakhstan outfit who are the lowest ranked opponent in the group. So far, Kazakhstan have been unable to make any impact on the qualifiers. They have also not been able to win any of the last nine matches. Ukraine will be keen to secure a second consecutive spot in a major tournament.

Total goals over 2.5

Interim manager Oleksandr Petrakov is likely to target three points and a lot of goals from this game. Apart from giving an opportunity to learn about his team ahead of the more difficult encounter against France a few days later, Ukraine will also be looking to score goals. The team has only been unable to score against Austria and England in the last 11 matches.

Goals from both teams – yes

Kazakhstan were able to score in the recent match against Ukraine back in April when the two teams met each other in the reverse fixture. This game is once again likely to be a close encounter with home advantage in them. Ukraine, meanwhile, have a strong offence that should get a lot of goals.

Kazakhstan vs Ukraine: Match Preview and Team News

Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan’s biggest ambition from these matches will be to get some points and enhance their chances of qualifying to future major tournaments. The national team has not been able to claim a victory since beating Lithuania back in September 2020. A home match will be the best opportunity for the lowest ranked team in the group.

Ukraine

Ukraine have so far had a decent start to the qualification season with three points from the opening three matches. However, they are in serious danger of missing out on the second spot with Finland still unbeaten from the availability of games. The absence of any injury concerns gives Ukraine boss Oleksandr Petrakov strength ahead of the game
