World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Group I of the European Qualifiers has some very interesting games over the course of the next few days.
We have teams like Iceland and Croatia which did really well so far and will look to extend their unbeaten run, while Turkey and Ukraine will try to gather points in order to not lose contact with the league leaders. Ukraine’s game is at home against Finland.
Ukraine vs Finland – 12/11/2016
FT Result: Ukraine 1.33 or 1/3 Draw 5.00 or 4/1 Finland 13.00 or 12/1
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 2.05 or 21/20 Under 1.75 or 3/4
Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9
Although a 3-5 goal difference isn’t the worst available, Finland only managed to gather one point so far from their first three games, after a disappointing 1-1 draw in Kosovo.
They’ve lost their next two games, although very narrowly: 2-3 against Iceland, after they were leading 2-1 in the 88th minute, and 0-1 against Croatia.
Since they haven’t produced any fireworks so far, it’s hard to think they can challenge for any of the top half spots in the group – which means they will play without any pressure and objectives.
On the other hand, Ukraine is unbeaten at the moment but could use some more points. They drew Turkey and Iceland, two of the better teams of the group, and won 3-0 against Kosovo.
All three points against Finland are a must since their next game will be against league leaders Croatia – where they also must win points if they want second place in the group.
Any other result than a win against Finland will drastically reduce their chances to qualify. It’s also worth mentioning that this is the first official game between the two sides in history.
Ukraine vs Finland Betting Tips
That being said, a home win is what we’d recommend for this game. Ukraine to score is an almost certainty, while a “both to score” bet shouldn’t be ignored (@ 2.70 or 17/10 with 138).
The Finnish managed to score in 2 of their 3 games so far, and the Ukrainians have shown signs of a leaky defense. Yarmolenko is our favorite goalscorer for the day.
Asian Handicap 1st Half: Ukraine -0.5 @ 1.80 or 4/5 with 138Bet UK
Ukraine Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.20 or 6/5
