Ukraine v Northern Ireland betting tips – Ukraine look like a mortgage job
Ukraine should overpower a Northern Ireland team who looked out of their depth against Poland in their opener
June 15th, 2016
A 1-0 losing scoreline didn’t tell the full story for a Northern Ireland team who failed to create meaningful chances in their opening match against Poland.
The men in green lasted until half-time with the scoreline goalless although the Poles soon found a way through and survived a brief late scare to ensure they banked a three-point haul.
It means that the Northern Irish will probably need a victory from this game to qualify for the last sixteen, although they could struggle against a Ukraine side who ran Germany fairly close in the first game.
Yarmolenko and Konoplyanka are the wizard wingers for the men in yellow with the potential to wreak havoc from out wide, with Michael O’Neill once again likely to field a defensive formation for this clash.
Kyle Lafferty could plough a lone furrow in attack and, for all Steven Davis’ midfield qualities, it’s hard to see how Northern Ireland are going to score in this game.
