France is the clear favorite to win this game against Ukraine. In the last 10 games played against these two sides, France has won six, drawn three, and has lost only one match. Thus, France has a clear advantage going into this match. Also, in the previous match played between these two sides, France thrashed Ukraine by a scoreline of 7-1. Thus, considering the recent form and home advantage, France is expected to win. 

Tip 1: Total Goals – Over 2.5

In the recently concluded UEFA Nations League, France scored 12 goals in their six matches, averaging 2.0 goals per game. While Olivier Giroud scored three goals in the tournament and top-scored for France, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe scored two goals each. Mbappe has been in terrific touch for PSG this season and has scored 20 goals this season in the French Ligue 1.

Ukraine scored only five goals in their five UEFA Nations League matches and averaged only 2.2 shots on target per match. The defensive line for France is likely to consist of  Lucas Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Benjamin Pavard, and Raphael Varane with Hugo Lloris as the goalkeeper. Ukraine will require special efforts to penetrate the defenses of France and are unlikely to score against France. Considering the recent form of both the teams, total goals by Ukraine are expected to be under 0.5, and 1.64 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.
