Ukraine-England Betting Preview: Expect both teams to find them net in this vital qualifier

Tuesday night sees a crunch match in Kiev as Roy Hodgson takes his side to face Mykhaylo Fomenko's men and our tipster is backing both sides to score
England travel to Ukraine with Group H really hotting up. Just one point separates the two sides with only three games remaining in World Cup qualification.

After Montenegro's draw on Friday, England now top the group with their destiny in their own hands, but with Ukraine winning their last four qualifiers in a row, it will be no walk in the park for Hodgson's side.

England come into this match on the back of a solid victory against Moldova at Wembley on Friday night. Two goals from Danny Welbeck saw England to a 4-0 victory, but a yellow card for the striker sees him suspended this evening.

The Three Lions will be relying on Southampton's Rickie Lambert to lead the line in Kiev with Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge both unavailable.

Paddy Power price the away side as slight underdogs at 9/5 (2.80) to come away with three points.

Ukraine destroyed San Marino at home last week 9-0. This result followed their 4-0 away mauling of Montenegro back in June. Mykhaylo Fomenko's side are the form team coming into this fixture and could cause a huge upset and top the group after this evening's match.

With England missing a number of players, Ukraine will fancy their chances of going one better than their 1-1 draw at Wembley back in September 2012. Paddy Power price them at 8/5 (2.60) to take all three points. The same firm prices the draw at 11/5 (3.20).

With the match tough to call in terms of an outright result, it's worth looking at the goals market to find a bet that stands out. One thing is certain about the two sides, they are both in fantastic goalscoring form.

England have netted nine goals in three matches, but are eclipsed by the home side, who have scored 15 in their last three games, albeit nine of those were against San Marino.

The both teams to score bet at 10/11 (1.91) with Paddy Power is certainly worth investing in, especially when you consider both sides will be going all out for the win.
