Germany will be happy to face Ukraine in this UEFA Nations League (UNL) clash, as they happen to be the only nation Germany have actually beaten in this competition (W1, D5, L2). Their 1-0 friendly win against the Czech Republic in midweek was their 11th game unbeaten though (W6, D5), and their fifth of the last six to see Germany score first, albeit it was also their first clean sheet across the last seven matches.

The hosts are yet to win a UNL home game, drawing all four via a different scoreline, but conceding first in just one. However those draws have contributed to an exceptional home record, with Germany losing just one competitive home game since October 2007 (W26, D8, L1).

Losing four of their last five matches (W1), Ukraine are yet to draw in 2020 (W2, L4), with both wins coming in the UNL, witnessing them score first and register a clean sheet in at least one half. However their two UNL losses this year saw Ukraine concede the opener within 20 minutes.

The visitors have lost three straight away games by a 2+ goal margin, and in each of their last four road trips they conceded first and in both halves (D1, L3). However when looking at just competitive fixtures, things look a little better for Ukraine who have lost just one of their last five such away matches (W2, D2, L1), even though they scored first in just one.

Our tipsters fancy Germany to win with odds of 1.35 on Betpay while the game promises to record goals of over 1.5 with odds of 1.07 also on Betpay.

Expert Prediction: Germany 3-1 Ukraine
