Ukraine vs Iceland by Sirius1

Ukraine
VS
Iceland
Ukraine will host the Euro sensation - Iceland in the Group I of the WC Qualifiers. This will be an interesting match as these teams had different performances at the Euro. Ukraine disappointed big time finishing last in group without scoring any goal while Iceland shocked by qualifying to the Quarter finals, where they were eventually crushed by France.

 

Ukraine finished the Euro at the third place (after Spain and Slovakia) and passed Slovenia in the Play-off.

 

In my opinion they have a good team and they have named as new coach Andrey Schevcenko who is on his first adventure in coaching.

 

Ukraine will be without fan support in this game as they were banned due to racism against their match with San Marino in the 2014 World cup Qualifiers.

 

This may affect the home side as their game didn't impress lately and they have some problems scoring goals.

 

Iceland on the other hand must have their moral boosted by the successful campaign in France and could benefit here from the lack of fan's pressure. They will need to defend well and maybe strike on counter-attack as they did with Portugal and England where they have proved to be mature enough to take points from better opponents.

 

Despite late results, Ukraine is still a good team and have several good players that can make the difference at any time such as Yarmolenko or Konoplyanka, however, Schevcenko does not have enough experience in coaching and he took the team in a delicate moment. Not having the fans to encourage them to force a victory, I think Iceland's enthusiasm will be enough here to snatch a point. I expect a draw, however I will bet more safe and choose X2.
