Ukraine – Netherlands Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

Frenkie de Jong The highly-rated central midfielder will be key to the battle in the midfield, having overcome a below-par England midfield last time out.Virgil van Dijk Dominant in the air and the Dutchs best hope of stopping Cristiano Ronaldo from putting in another match-winning performance.Memphis Depay No goals against England, but the Lyon striker has pace to burn and can cause problems with his direct running.

Cristiano Ronaldo The star of the semi-final as the Juventus man fired a hat-trick to lead Portugal to victory he now has 88 international goals.Bernardo Silva Manchester Citys Player of the Year set up Ronaldos second in the win against Switzerland to continue his fine season.Ruben Neves In a battle of rising midfield stars against the Dutch, the Wolves man could be the difference for the hosts.

With 21 international goals to his name, the 29 year old has the ability and experience to put the Luxembourg backline to the sword here by adding to his tally with another goal at any time at odds of20/21 withBet365. Yevhen Konoplyanka was on the scoresheet twice in that 5-0 thumping of Serbia and with West Ham Uniteds Andriy Yarmolenko out, the Schalke winger is the talisman of this Ukraine outfit.

Ukraine vs Luxembourg Odds

They simply did not have enough points compared to the other second place finishers, so they lost out on the chance to join England in the finals. They were the only side in Europe to finish second in their group, Group F, and not get to have a chance to go the World Cup. Holland also won't be headed to Russia, for their paths were blocked by both France and Sweden. The Dutch didn't even manage to crack the top two, due to a huge goal differential put up by Sweden, so they will be forced to watch from the sidelines come the summer. Slovakia were unlucky to not get a chance in the UEFA Playoffs.

A man to watch in the home team will be Borussia Dortmund ace Andriy Yarmolenko, but we predict that the two teams are going to play out a draw in Fridays friendly. The Slovaks were more than unfortunate not to book their place in the play-offs, but life goes on, and they are now fully focused on the qualifiers for EURO 2020. Despite finishing their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign in second place in Group F Slovakia eventually failed to make it to the play-offs. Jan Kozak is still in charge of the team and his men are definitely capable of making life difficult for Ukraine in Fridays football match at Arena Lviv. The Ukrainians failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals as well, with the team suffering a heartbreaking 2-0 loss to Croatia in their last group game and, no doubt, the hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Slovakia.

Having beaten the likes of Moldova, Georgia and Lithuania in the last twelve months, Luc Holtzs side wont go down without a fight here. The Red Lions will make the trip to Lviv on Monday night as rank outsiders at 25/1 withPaddyPower, but they will also make the trip on the back of some improved form that has seen them lost just one of their last five games.

Correct Score Prediction: Portugal 2-1 Netherlands

With the home advantage and the far superior squad, it should be a case of how many for Ukraine on Monday night but theyll be keen to stay focused and ensure they pick up all three points at 1/9 withUnibet. That victory means thatAndriy Shevchenkos men have now started their qualifying section with seven points from their opening three matches and that 5-0 hammering of Orlovi on Friday evening will have boosted their confidence yet further.

The Dutch were thankful to some poor English defending but otherwise deserved their win - but if they do not step it up another level, Ronaldo and the hosts will claim victory in this final. Expert Verdict: Cristiano Ronaldo was at his best as Portugal beat Switzerland, while the Netherlands had to come from behind to see off England in extra time.

Slovakia have six wins and three losses in the calendar year. The losses came away to Scotland and England in qualification, and they also lost at Ukraine in a friendly. They do have three wins on the bounce, though, so that will encourage them some heading into the new Nations League and beyond. The Dutch, meanwhile, have nine wins and three losses in their last year of action. They have been beaten by Italy and England in friendlies and by the French in qualification. They did look good, however, in their last friendly, rolling over Portugal 0-3 in Switzerland.

Expert Verdict: The Dutch missed the World Cup for the first time in a while, and that means we won't be seeing the Oranje and its fans in full. The Slovakians won't be there either, though, and that will hurt them just as badly. With that said, the Netherlands are never really all that far from having a great team, so a slight edge goes to them. These are two very good teams that just lost out due to being in the toughest confederation to qualify from.

The Yellow-Blues are clearly looking confident in front of goal at the moment after the five they smashed past Serbia on Friday night and with the quality of players likeArtem Kravets and YehvenKonoplyanka in their ranks they should have enough firepower to win this one on the two goal handicap at11/10 withSpreadex. Unfortunately for them, we think the hosts quality will just be too much over the course of the 90 minutes.
