predictions logo accent sport preview


After kicking off their European qualifying campaign with a big win in Italy, England will be intent on continuing their momentum against Ukraine this Sunday at Wembley.

England vs Ukraine: Sunday, 17:00

Suggested bets

  • England to win and over 2.5 goals
  • England to win with a two-goal winning margin
  • Both teams to score

Key stats

  • Five of England’s last eight games at Wembley saw the ‘both teams to score’ bet land
  • Ukraine have won just one of their last four competitive games
  • England have lost just one of their last seven matches
  • Ukraine’s last visit to Great Britain ended in a 3-0 defeat to Scotland in September
  • Ukraine have failed to score in just two of their last seven outings

England vs Ukraine – Verdict

The Three Lions came away unscathed against Italy on Thursday when it comes to injuries.

However, Luke Shaw’s sending off could give Ben Chilwell an opportunity to feature on the left.

Chelsea man Mykhailo Mudryk could start for Ukraine as he looks to net his first senior international goal.

England have only kept three clean sheets from their last nine outings – with all three coming at the World Cup against USA, Wales and Senegal.

Ukraine will be aware of those facts as they look to kick off their qualifying campaign with an impressive performance at Wembley.

However, interim Ukraine head coach Ruslan Rotan’s men will also bear in mind their most recent encounter against the English at the home of football, which ended in a 4-0 thumping during the 2020 European Championships.

Ukraine didn’t qualify for the 2022 World Cup, meaning their last competitive outing was a goalless draw with Scotland in September 2022.

The Eastern European side have won just one of their last four competitive matches – that being a 5-0 demolition over Armenia in the UEFA Nations League.

Five of England’s last eight games at Wembley have seen ‘both teams to score’ land, and considering the defensive vulnerabilities of Gareth Southgate’s side, that is the way to go on Sunday.

England to win and over 2.5 goals is another enticing option as the Three Lions look to keep the heat on their qualifying rivals.
