Bosnia-Herzegovina host Ukraine at Bilino Polje stadium in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday in what will be a must-win game for Ukraine.

Bosnia-Herzegovina are out of the running to finish second in Group D. Ivyalo Petev's side are four points behind Finland in second and are only playing for pride at this point. They will want to end their qualification campaign on a high note with a win against Ukraine this week.

Ukraine, on the other hand, are only two points off Finland, ahead of their final group stage fixture. Oleksandr Petrakov's side will need to win their game on Tuesday and hope that Finland lose against France in order to finish in second and advance to the playoffs.
