Tonight, September 5, the capital city of Iceland, Reykjavik, hosts the qualification fixture of FIFA World Cup 2018 where Ukraine will meet the home team.
Andriy Shevchenko’s team will face their opponents in the Qualification Round 8 of FIFA World Cup 2018; the game begins at 9.45 p.m. Kyiv time.
After Icelanders surprisingly lost to Finns in the previous game and Ukrainians defeated Turks, the Yellow Blues got a nice opportunity to strengthen their positions in the ranking and stick to the second place in the qualification group – exactly where they are now.
Qualification Group I
- Croatia – 16 points
- Ukraine – 14
- Iceland – 13
- Turkey – 11
- Finland – 4
- Kosovo – 1
The victory over Turks in Kharkiv showed the Ukrainian team still has some fight in it. Ukraine will have to show its best again – exactly like it did with the Turks.
William Hill’s forecasts are the following: Iceland’s victory – 2.40, draw – 3.10, Ukraine’s victory – 3.10.
