Wales hosts Ukraine in Cardiff in a final playoff for reaching the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The team which wins here will have the opportunity to play at the competition in December. Let’s preview it in our big odds football predictions for tomorrow.
Wales reached this playoffs final after winning against Austria back in March. Now they are 90 minutes away from qualifying for the World Cup for a first time in their history. Everyone in the country undestands what a big opportunity this is.
During the week Wales started their Nations League campaign against Poland, but suffered a 1-2 defeat in Wroclaw. Jonathan Williams actually put the Dragons ahead in the 52th minute, but Poland managed to turn the game around. What will happen against Ukraine on Sunday is much more important, though.
Wales’ super star Gareth Bale is the country’s biggest hope for winning on Sunday. The striker just won the Champions League for a 5th time in his career, but he didn’t play against Poland.
Ukraine won the sympathy of the world after reaching this playoff final. Despite their country being torn apart by Russian invasion, Ukrainian players managed to win against Scotland on away ground few days ago. Oleksandr Petrakov’s team made a heroic performance and achieved an impressive 3-1 win in Glasgow. Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk and Dovbyk scored for the visiting team.
Clearly for Ukraine it’s bigger than football right now. For the players it is a chance to bring some joy to their people in this troubling time. And they already did it once against Scotland. Can they do it again on Sunday, too?
That’s the big odds football predictions for tomorrow for the World Cup playoffs final between Wales and Ukraine on Sunday. One of these two teams will reach the competition in Qatar and everything will be decided in one game.
