The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Ukraine are looking absolutely unstoppable at the moment, racing to the top of Group B Euro 2020 qualifiers standings on 16 points, leaving their opponents Portugal in second with 11 points. Both teams have left the others to dust and bolted to the top of the table.
Match status: Euro 2020 Qualification - Group B
Kick-off:
Venue: NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium (Kiev)
The Yellow-Blue locking horns with their major group rivals the Navigators on Monday night promises to be one of the most interesting ties this week. With both teams almost evenly matched on paper, anything is expected.

Even though the table reflects the Ukrainian being better than the Portuguese, you cannot afford to rule the Navigators out of this one, thanks to the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo. He has been on a great run of form in this competition, firing on all cylinders, and you can bet on him getting on the scoresheet once again in Ukraine.

Ukraine v Portugal Team News

Group B Euro 2020 qualifiers standings pretty much says it all, Ukraine and Portugal have shown great composure to lead the chasing pack. The former however, are the group leaders with four wins and a single draw from their five matches.

This means the Ukrainian national team are currently unbeaten in the qualifiers, that’s a really huge stat to savour heading into this mouth-watering encounter. They have also won both of their home encounters in the competition, highlighting their strength when playing on home turf.

However, despite cruising through a group that constitutes mostly European minnows like Serbia, Luxembourg and Lithuania, the Navigators appear to be the only major threat to Andriy Shevchenko’s charges. This is clarified, as their only draw so far, was in an away game against Portugal which happened to be the group’s qualifying campaign curtain-raiser.

On the other hand, the visitors sit in second place 5 points adrift of their opponents in 2nd, with a game in hand. They have registered two wins and draws apiece so far in the competition, which is a pretty interesting stat.

It is worth noting that Fernando Santos’ men sealed those wins on the road, showing their dominance on away soil. With their composure, zeal and character on foreign grounds, they might as well have a chance against table toppers, Ukraine.

This pre-game analysis would be incomplete without mentioning the threat Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo poses to the Yellow-Whites defense. The 34-year-old has been the cream of the crop for his country, leaving defenses bewildered, thanks to his clinically in front of goal.

With continued support from the likes of Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva in attack, the striker has helped himself to a couple of well-taken goals so far in the competition. Hence, we should expect the former Manchester United man to find the back of the net come Monday night.

Ukraine vs Portugal Predictions

Here are some priceless stats coming up – the Yellow-Whites have lost two of their last ten home games while their counterparts have just a single loss out of ten away fixtures. The reverse fixture played at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa de Benfica ended in a goalless draw.

Whether the Yellow-Whites can continue their unbeaten run is left to be seen but you can expect Portugal to give the group leaders a run for their money.

Considering the Navigators have been very solid on their recent travels and the presence of five-time Balon D'or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, you can count on Fernando Santos’ men showing superiority in this one. However, it is safe to draw no bet upon the Portuguese outfit as the opposition is also as strong when playing in front of their own fans.
