class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having proved too strong in the reverse encounter in Kiev, Al Hain-Cole is backing Die Mannschaft to ease past Shevchenko's men in Leipzig
Germany will be aiming to pull clear of Ukraine when the teams meet in Leipzig for Saturday’s Nations League clash.
Die Mannschaft are level on six points with their guests after four group games, having won once and drawn three so far.
Germany vs Ukraine Latest Odds
Having run out 2-1 winners in last month’s reverse encounter in Kiev, they are 1/3 (1.33) favourites with bet365 to move ahead by coming out on top once again.
Andriy Shevchenko’s men have lost four of their last five fixtures coming into this match but can be backed at 8/1 (9.00) to pull off a shock victory at the Red Bull Arena.
All four of the hosts’ previous home matches in this competition have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 4/1 (5.00) on them being held to yet another stalemate.
Germany vs Ukraine Team News
Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Jonas Hofmann is unlikely to feature after injuring his thigh in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over the Czech Republic, while Robin Gosens is also doubtful.
Six Dynamo Kiev players plus Yevhen Shakhov of AEK Athens are ruled out for the guests after testing positive for COVID-19, with Serhiy Sydorchuk also unavailable due to suspension.
Germany vs Ukraine Preview
While their only win in the last five matches was an impressive 1-0 home victory over Spain, Ukraine do not inspire much confidence of causing another upset here.
Wednesday’s 2-0 friendly defeat in Poland means they have now lost three successive matches on the road – conceding 13 goals and scoring just once.
Without a number of key players, it is hard to see them keeping at bay an opposition side that has lost just once in 18 matches in all competitions.
Indeed, Joachim Low’s team should have little trouble in adding to the visitors’ alarming defensive record considering they are averaging over three goals a game in their own backyard over the last six matches.
Germany vs Ukraine Tips and Predictions
All in all, odds of 4/5 (1.80) look well worth backing on Germany proving far too strong and winning by at least two clear goals against a Ukraine side that has not travelled well recently.
