A draw will be enough for Scotland to earn promotion, while Ukraine need three points

Ukraine and Scotland will battle it out for the number one spot in Nations League B Group 1 on Tuesday. Scotland currently top the group heading into the final game of the campaign, but the hosts are just two points behind and can leapfrog them with a win.

Scotland are on a hot streak heading into this game, having beaten Ukraine 3-0 before edging past Ireland last week, but their opponents looked strong in their previous match when they beat Armenia 5-0.

Ukraine vs Scotland latest odds

Despite losing 3-0 to Tuesday's opponents in their previous meeting, Ukraine are the favourites to get the win this week, with bet365 offering odds of 23/20 (2.15).

The visitors are available at 21/10 (3.1) to make it three wins in a row and the draw is priced at 5/2 (3.5).

Ukraine vs Scotland first goal scorer odds

Roman Yaremchuk is the lowest-priced player to get the first goal of the game at 9/2 (5.5) while Andriy Yarmolenko is available at 13/2 (7.5) to break the deadlock.

For Scotland, Che Adams can be backed at 13/2 (7.5) while Lyndon Dykes is 15/2 (8.5).

Ukraine vs Scotland preview

A draw in Krakow will be enough to secure promotion from the group for Scotland, but it will be no easy achievement for Steve Clarke's men despite their 3-0 win against Tuesday's opponents last week.

Kieran Tierney and Scott McKenna have had to leave the squad in the wake of the win against Ireland and Scott McTominay is suspended.

To make matters worse, Greg Taylor, Lyndon Dykes, Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong are suffering from a virus.

Aaron Hickey is available for Clarke, however, despite suffering a hamstring issue against Ireland.

This match will likely be much closer than the most recent clash between these sides as Ukraine will be pushing to overtake the visitors and ensure they move into Group A. 

Ukraine vs Scotland tips and predictions

This will likely be a tight affair as Scotland will be eager to preserve a draw at least, so odds of 17/20 (1.85) for under 2.5 goals looks appealing.
