A win for either team as Ukraine host Scotland will be enough for them to earn promotion to the top tier of the UEFA Nations League.

As top leagues go into the international break, Ukraine travel to Scotland for their UEFA Nations League clash.

Ukraine come into the game unbeaten in League B: Group 1 and are sitting pretty at the top with 7 points after 3 games.

Meanwhile, Scotland are in 2nd place with 6 points after losing 3-1 to Ukraine in the reverse fixture in June.

They both ultimately missed out on a place at Qatar 2022, but occupy the top two spots in League B Group 1 with a game in hand on the other two nations.

Since ending 2021 with six wins in succession, Scotland have won only two of their subsequent six outings – both against minnows Armenia.
