An interesting clash of the 4th round of the UEFA Nations League – Group B1 awaits us on Wednesday, where Scotland and Ukraine will open the September program. The match is played at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Scotland has registered two triumphs and one defeat after three rounds, and “The Tartan Army” will do everything to eliminate Ukraine from the leadership position. Meanwhile, Ukraine failed to keep their 100% record from the opening three rounds as they drew at home against Ireland 1-1 in the third round of Group B1. Before that, The Blue and Yellow opened the competition with two consecutive triumphs. Both Scotland and Ukraine will not participate in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, as both national teams were eliminated from the play-offs and both will be focused on EURO 2024.

Scotland vs Ukraine Betting Tips: BTTS
It will be the fourth meeting between these national teams. More than three months ago, these two teams met at Hampden Park, where Ukraine won 3-1 in the semi-final of the World Cup (Qatar) playoffs. Before that, Scotland defeated the Ukrainians 3-1 in the qualifiers for EURO – 2017. The fight for promotion in League A is heating up, given that Scotland has only one point less than the leader of the group – Ukraine. Scotland have one of the most effective attacks in League B with 6 goals scored, so we have no doubts that their offensive line will continue their successful goal-scoring streak against the defensively modest Ukraine. Despite the prolific attack, it should be noted that “The Tartan Army” have visible problems in the back line, as they took the ball out of their net 4 times.
Meanwhile, Ukraine have shown resourcefulness in the final third, scoring 5 goals from their opening three games while conceding just one goal in that time. It should be borne in mind that the Ukrainians did not have strong attacking sides in the first three rounds, so it is no wonder that they have kept the net twice so far – against Ireland and Armenia. Home field advantage should be of great importance in such matches, but we do not believe that Ukraine will give up easily. Both national teams have dynamic attacks, so we expect goals in both nets.
