Contributor’s Pick

Spain have kept a clean sheet in their last seven matches in the European Championship, including the qualifiers, while Ukraine have kept a clean sheet in six of their last eight matches. According to Head-2-Head statistics, Ukraine have never won any of its matches against Spain till date. Vicente del Bosque’s side is expected to finish the qualifiers with another win, 2-1 being the most probable scoreline.

We have had a good qualifying campaign but we had to work hard. We must congratulate ourselves. I think we have an idea of how we want to play.

– Vicente del Bosque.
