Ukraine could claim a crucial opening victory

With Belgium the clear favourites to top Group E, Romania, Ukraine and Slovakia will all believe that they can claim that coveted second place, however the Blue and Yellow look set to be the ones to secure an early advantage in Munich.

Ukraine have more tournament experience than their rivals as this will be their fourth straight European Championship finals and their first ever knockout-stage appearance last time out will give them confidence that they can do the same again in Germany.

A run of six wins and one defeat from their last nine fixtures puts Ukraine in good stead heading into the finals and, with Romania failing to win any of their last four matches, Serhiy Rebrov’s side could take control of this game and cruise to victory.

Entertaining encounter expected at the Allianz

Although the teams' last meeting was a friendly in 2016, encounters between Romania and Ukraine have produced goals on a regular basis and more excitement could be in store on Monday.

There have been 16 goals scored in their last three head-to-head meetings - an average of over five goals per match - and the most recent encounter was a seven-goal thriller as Ukraine edged to a 4-3 victory in Turin.

Four of Ukraine’s last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and a similar outcome could be on the cards if Rebrov’s men have their shooting boots on.

Yarmolenko could inch closer to national record

Ukraine are blessed with a number of in-form goalscoring talents including Girona duo Victor Tsygankov and Artem Dovbyk, who starred for the Spanish side as they qualified for Champions League football for the first time in their history.

However, captain Andriy Yarmolenko could be the man to fire Ukraine closer to the round of 16 given his exploits for his country over the years. The 34-year-old has netted on 46 occasions for the Blue and Yellow.

This tally places him just two goals shy of Andriy Shevchenko’s all-time record for Ukraine, giving the captain extra impetus to perform in what may be his last major tournament. Expect the former West Ham man to try his luck as often as possible on Monday.
