Ukraine are set to play the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday at the Stadion Miejski im. Władysława Króla on Tuesday in the UEFA Nations League.

Ukraine come into this game on the back of a 3-0 win over Joaquin Caparros' Armenia recently. Second-half goals from Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi, Dynamo Kyiv right-back Oleksandr Karavayev and Everton left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko secured the win for Ukraine.

The Republic of Ireland, on the other hand, beat Steve Clarke's Scotland in their most recent game. Goals from Preston North End midfielder Alan Browne, Tottenham Hotspur forward Troy Parrott and Swansea City striker Michael Obafemi sealed the deal for their country.
