Scotland are set to play Ukraine at Hampden Park on Wednesday for a FIFA World Cup qualifying game.

Scotland come into this game on the back of a 2-2 draw against Austria in their most recent fixture. Goals from Club Brugge centre-back Jack Hendry and Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn for Scotland were cancelled out by second-half goals from Augsburg attacker Michael Gregoritsch and Arminia Bielefeld midfielder Alessandro Schopf for Austria.

Ukraine, on the other hand, beat Ivaylo Petev's Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-0 in their most recent international game. Second-half goals from Manchester City star Oleksandr Zinchenko and Dnipro-1 forward Artem Dovbyk secured the victory for Oleksandr Petrakov's Ukraine.

Scotland vs Ukraine Prediction

Scotland have a strong squad, led by star left-back Andrew Robertson. Robertson himself will likely not be fully fit, having just completed a gruelling league season with Liverpool. Scotland don't lack talent, but it will be interesting to see how Steve Clarke sets up his team.

Ukraine, on the other hand, have been facing major problems as a nation which has understandably put football on the backburner. Stars like Oleksandr Zinchenko, Ruslan Malinovskyi and Andriy Yarmolenko will be keen to produce a positive performance.

A close match is on the cards, with a draw the likely result.

Prediction: Scotland 1-1 Ukraine
