Regardless of the result, the fact that Oleksandr Petrakov’s men are here merits celebration.

Storylines

Scotland: Steve Clarke’s men drew both of their March friendlies but finished qualification strong with six consecutive wins although it was not enough to dislodge Denmark at the top of Group F. The Scottish are still riding the crest of a wave of positivity after their UEFA Euro 2020 outing, so expect Hampden Park to be lively.

Ukraine: Without an official match since last November, a 2-1 friendly victory over Borussia Monchengladbach is all the Ukrainians have been able to get in as far as preparation goes for this game. A series of club friendlies featuring the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk, and Dynamo Kyiv have also taken place to prepare the players after they finished second to France in Group D.

Prediction

Pick: Scotland should make home advantage count in a narrow contest. This one could be decided by a single goal either way, but the Scots have the advantage at home and should be able to set up a clash with Wales. Make no mistake, though, Ukraine will be strong neutral favorites.
