Ukraine vs Kosovo by Jimmys003
Ukraine will host Kosovo in the 3rd match of the group stage for the 2018 World Cup qualification.
Ukraine wont be to disappointed with their opening two games of this qualification stage. They started with a 1-1 home draw with a team full of confidence after their euro 2016 campaign Iceland, a game in which they had chances and possession to grab the 3 points. But their coming off a result they'll be fairly happy with. Coming into this off a solid 2-2 away draw with Turkey just 4 days ago. Again winning the possession and shot stats they'll come into this match off the back of playing fairly decent football.
Bottom of the group Kosovo will be quiet low on confidence. Despite opening their qualification stage with an impressive 1-1 away draw with fellow group battlers Finland, they come into this match off a 6-0 hammering at the hands off Croatia.
Prediction: Andriy Shevchenko will be pleased to face a side of Kosovo’s stature after earning a point a-piece against the two strongest sides in the group. They can also boast of a strong record at home after remaining unbeaten in 9 of their 10 matches. The lone defeat came against Spain, while they won 6 and drawn 3. Kosovo have some excellent talents in their squad, but they are relatively new and inexperienced at the international level. Ukraine must not have any problems to win this through on a comfortable margin.
