The match

England started their journey towards the 2024 European Championships on a high, beating the reigning champions Italy away from home in their opening game of Group C. They will be back at home to take on Ukraine, who didn’t have a game on Match Day 1. A Declan Rice opener and Harry Kane’s penalty goal saw England leave Italy with three points to shoot to the top of the group but there were casualties to the win. Luke Shaw was sent off late and will miss this encounter while Jude Bellingham is an injury concern. England’s last meeting with Ukraine was in the Euro 2020 tournament and they thrashed Ukraine 4-0 at the quarter finals stage. They will be hoping for the same and in their shape against Italy, it will be hard not to think of England bagging three points at home. The win over Italy was England’s fourth straight in European Championship qualifiers since losing 2-1 to Czech Republic in 2019. They have an even better run at home, winning each of the last 10 in Euro qualifiers, and are unbeaten in 13. In the last nine matches in this competition, Harry Kane has scored 13 times, and in the last four at home, he has eight goals.

Ukraine’s last outing was in September 2022, a Nations League encounter against Scotland which ended 0-0 for their third clean sheet in the last five matches. They will hope to start their year on a high and the 4-0 loss to England at the 2020 finals should spur them. Ukraine’s only loss in the last six matches was the 3-0 reverse against Scotland in the Nations League, which also stands as their second loss in the last 16 matches. With this run, and some of their key players based in England, they will feel they have what it takes to face the Three Lions. In their last 10 matches, Ukraine have three clean sheets and facing Harry Kane, this is an area they will have to address. Ukraine are unbeaten in 10 European Championship qualification matches and come into this one with seven wins in 10. In the same competition, they are unbeaten in seven away from home.

Key Statistics

  • Ukraine have three clean sheets in their last 10 matches.
  • England have 10 straight home wins in European Championship qualifiers.
  • Harry Kane has scored in each of England’s last nine games in Euro qualifiers.
  • England are unbeaten in 13 home matches in European Championship qualifiers.
  • Ukraine are unbeaten in 10 European Championship qualification games.

The bet of our experts

Ukraine will come into this game relatively fresher and will want to take the game to England. They will still be the underdogs here, despite their unbeaten streak in this competition. Ukraine’s numbers in defence in their last 10 matches haven’t been impressive and this is an aspect that will interest Harry Kane-inspired England. England have 10 straight wins at home in this competition and Kane has been a key contributor to that. In our prediction for England v Ukraine, we are backing Harry Kane to score.
