Scotland will be looking to exact revenge on Ukraine after Oleksandr Petrakov’s men knocked them out of the World Cup qualifying play-offs back in June, losing 3-1 in Glasgow. Pitted together in Group B1 of the Nations League, Steve Clarke will be desperate to bounce back from that defeat and give his side a genuine shot at promotion.

The current state of play sees Scotland in second, behind Ukraine, but only the single point separates these nations after three matches. In what is expected to be a packed and raucous audience in Glasgow on Wednesday night, Clarke will want to capture the mood of the terraces and galvanise his side to potentially leapfrog Ukraine into first.

The Blue and Yellow were unable to build on their Path A qualifying win over Scotland for the World Cup, subsequently losing to Wales 1-0, so attention refocuses on the Nations League and sealing promotion to the top tier. A win here for Petrakov would see Ukraine extend their lead atop Group B1 ahead of their final two games.

Scotland vs Ukraine match stats

Keep an eye out for Ruslan Malinovskyi in the Ukrainian corner. The Atalanta midfielder packs a thunderbolt of a left peg, able to unwind from any angle and any range. In fact, only Lionel Messi (19) has scored more goals from outside the penalty area than Malinovskyi (15) across Europe’s top five leagues since 2019/20.

Scotland vs Ukraine head-to-head

01 Jun 2022 – Scotland 1-3 Ukraine – World Cup Qualifiers

13 Oct 2007 – Scotland 3-1 Ukraine – European Qualifiers

11 Oct 2006 – Ukraine 2-0 Scotland – European Qualifiers

The standout contest is, of course, that showdown at the start of June for a shot at a winner-takes-all match-up against Wales and, ultimately, a place at this year’s World Cup. Ukraine came through a stern Glaswegian examination, winning 3-1 through goals from Andriy Yarmolenko, Roman Yaremchuk and Artem Dovbyk. Unfortunately for them, they were unable to take that form into the Wales match, losing 1-0.
