Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Second place in Group D will be at stake when Ukraine and Bosnia face each other at Arena Lviv on Tuesday evening. The Ukrainians recorded a very important 2-1 win over Finland in their last group game, with the team retaining second position in the standings. Even though Man City defensive midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko is out of contention for the hosts, we predict that they will find the net in Tuesday’s qualifier. Benfica attacker Roman Yaremchuk, who found the net in the triumph over Finland, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
The Balkan Dragons, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Kazakhstan, and they managed to get one, with the team keeping their qualification hopes alive. Considering that Edin Dzeko and Co. will go for a win in the Arena Lviv showdown as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Keep in mind that both Miralem Pjanic and Rade Krunic are injured for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Andriy Yarmolenko):
Arguably the most exciting Ukrainian player at the moment, Andriy Yarmolenko is the 26-year-old forward, who can play wide as a winger and fill in numerous positions in attack. Over the past few years there has been a gathering feeling that the player has outgrown the Ukrainian League and that with the player surpassing the 200-game mark for Dynamo Kyiv Yarmolenko should be heading west to Europe’s brighter stage.
Wanted and scouted by Spanish giants Barcelona, Yarmolenko attracted interest from many other clubs, predominantly from the Premier League, and was even close to joining Everton in summer 2016, but the Goodison outfit’s offer came too late to the Ukrainian club.
Talented forward is a free-scoring machine who has already scored more than 115 goals for the club he spent his entire career with. The two-footed winger is equally adept through the middle and is a versatile force that would be a good addition to any self-respecting European side.
Yarmolenko made hi Ukraine debut in 2009 and has so far been capped 63 times, during which he scored 26 goals for the national set-up.
Highlighted Team (Bosnia & Herzegovina):
Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team have been competiting on the international stage since the country declared independence in 1992. The former Yugoslavian republic did well to book their place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, but the Balkan Dragons failed to impress at the showpiece tournament.
Bosnia were beaten by the likes of Argentina and Nigeria in the group stages of the competition, but they gave fans some cheer on June 25, 2014, with the team beating Iran 3-1 in their final group game. The Dragons welcome their rivals at Bilino Polje in Zenica and the capacity of the venue is 15.600. Bosnia play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst the colour of their away kits is white.
Roma attacker Edin Dzeko, who used to play for the likes of Wolfsburg and Manchester City, is undisputedly the team’s most notable footballer. Serie A ace Miralem Pjanic is yet another player to mention as he has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world football.
