Ukraine vs Kazakhstan Match Analysis and Prediction

Ukraine will be looking to build upon their disappointing draw to Finland last weekend when they host Kazakhstan. The match schedules for Wednesday at Arena L’viv in their third World Cup 2022 qualifier, with kickoff at9:45 pm.

Both sides played out against Group D leaders and current world champions France this month, with Andriy Shevchenko’s men securing a critical point. Moreover, their opponents were beaten on home soil last Sunday.

After earning an impressive point away in France last week, Ukraine could not build upon their recent win as they could only draw 1-1 at home to Finland on Sunday. It was a good chance for Shevchenko to claim the three points. However, a draw in two outings saw the side miss the chance to join France at Group D’s top.
