Ukraine's national football team hosted Spaniards in the home game of the UEFA Nations League. The second-leg match of the fixture was played at NSC Olimpiysky.

The Yellow-Blues lost the first leg, and seem to have learned from their loss. Andriy Shevchenko and his staff corrected a lot of mistakes allowed in the first match. Though Spain's attacks from flanks were a regular thing, they did not pose much of a threat for the home team. The Spaniards kept the ball, but the Ukrainians appeared to be ready for such a scenario, showing some decent defense skills.
