Belarus vs Ukraine (EURO 2016 Qualifiers, 09.10.2014)

In a group with defending champions Spain and Slovakia, the qualification is set to be a highly disputed affair. The match between Belarus and Ukraine is one between the two teams that at least need to keep winning until they can reach playoffs rounds. Despite the fact that Ukraine is last in group C table and Belarus is third, the bookmakers favor the visitors to walk away with the three points and give them 2.35 odds for an outright win, as opposed to Belarus’ 3.20.

The majority of the Belarus squad plays either in their domestic competition or in Russian clubs with limited European exposure. Should they reach the group stage of the EURO 2016 it will be a major accomplishment from a qualification group where they are the underdogs. Their key players are Zhenov, Kalachev, and their leading goalscorer is Kornilenko. Another important hope for Belarus to score, Rodionov will miss the home clash against Ukraine after picking up an injury while playing for his club, BATE Borisov.
Ukraine’s fortress used to be home matches, but not anymore as their most recent result is a 0-1 defeat against Slovakia. The visitors reside on the 23rd place in the FIFA rankings, and while they might push for an improvement, four matches in just eleven days might take its toll on the players. Their main stars are Konoplyanka, Tymoshchuk and Dynamo Kyiv’s Yarmolenko. What Ukraine needs to improve and understand is that if they fail to win any points against Belarus their qualification chances will diminish considerably.

Among the most popular betting markets with Unibet is: both teams to score at 2.17 and Ukraine to lead at half time at 3.10 odds. Ukraine to win both halves at 7.50 odds, the same betting market for Belarus has 11.50 odds and away team to win without conceding a goal is at .4.75. We are betting 8 units on Ukraine to score an odd number of goals at 2.08 with Unibet.
