Worth mentioning: The national selections of Finland and Ukraine have met three times on the football field throughout history so far, with all three being World Cup qualifiers. Ukraine won the first two encounters held in 2016 and 2017, both times prevailing via one goal margins, with Finland still in search of their first victory in the H2H clashes, as the most recent one in March of this year ended in 1:1 stalemate. One of the three matches produced over 2,5 goals, while two witnessed goals at both ends. The team playing at home has scored exactly one goal in all of the three meetings.

Worth mentioning: Finland’s last game ended in disappointment, as they fell 2:0 down away to reigning World champions France a month ago. The team is not in the best of forms, winning just two of its eleven matches in 2021 and unable to score more than a goal in any of the last eight encounters, totaling just two strikes for the period. None of those eight clashes saw both involved teams scoring, neither featured over 2,5 goals. Four of their last six defeats came via 2:0 scores and both of the other two via 1:0. Only three draws have been registered across the nation’s last twenty games. Finland has scored just a single goal across the five previous home meetings, but kept a clean sheet in both of the last two.

Worth mentioning:Ukraine returned home with a point from the visit to the Czech Republic a month ago, as the match finished in 1:1 stalemate. All of the nation’s three games in September ended without a winner and in draws, with Ukraine failing to win any of its previous six encounters during the 90 minutes, once prevailing in extra-time over Sweden at the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020. The team has been unable to keep a clean sheet in eight consecutive meetings. Only three of the Ukrainians last twenty matches were won by the visiting sides, while the host nations triumphed nine times for the period. Two of Ukraine last five clashes resulted in over 2,5 goals, while four witnessed goals at both ends.
