class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both sides only needing a point to book their spot in the last 16 of Euro 2020, Goal is backing a slow start to this Group C fixture in Bucharest
Ukraine and Austria will both be looking to secure passage into the last 16 of Euro 2020 when they meet at the National Arena in Bucharest for their final Group C match on Monday.
Having each lost to the Netherlands and beaten North Macedonia, a draw will very probably be enough for these nations to take their place in the knockout stages.
Ukraine vs Austria Latest Odds
Indeed, Betfair Sportsbook make the draw available at just 19/20 (1.95) in anticipation of these teams playing out the result they both need.
Ukraine are 5/2 (3.50) to claim victory and take second place behind the Netherlands, whilst it is 13/5 (3.60) that Austria finish as runners-up.
Ukraine vs Austria Team News
Oleksandr Zubkov was taken off with injury after 13 minutes in Ukraine’s first game and is doubtful for this one.
Austria attacker Marko Arnautovic served his one-game suspension and is available for this clash, although it remains to be seen if Franco Foda opts to play him with the knockout stages probably looming.
Ukraine vs Austria Preview
The fact that a point will be enough for both sides to qualify for the last 16 will no doubt play a significant role in how these teams choose to set up on Monday.
Neither country will want to lose as finishing third with three points with a negative goal difference is certainly no guarantee of qualification, which means it could be a slow game which sees little risk taken by either team.
Even disregarding the connotations of this fixture, six of the eight goals seen in Ukraine’s Euro 2020 games have come after the break and the same is true for three of the six in Austria’s results.
Ukraine vs Austria Tips and Predictions
It seems likely that this Euro 2020 game will be a slow burner and Betfair Sportsbook’s price of 11/10 (2.10) on under 0.5 goals in the first half looks rather generous.
Also worthy of consideration is backing the draw at 19/20 (1.95) as well as the draw and under 2.5 goals combination, which pays out at 15/8 (2.88).
