Looking to pick up their first Nations League victory of this year’s tournament on Saturday night, former world champions Germany will make the trip to Ukraine in what could be another high-scoring contest this weekend.

Despite making a string of alterations for their friendly showdown against Turkey on home soil in midweek, the Whites were held to a last-gasp equalizer in Koln and have also opened their Nations League exploits with back-to-back stalemates against Switzerland and Spain.

On the flip side, while Ukraine might have managed to shock many across Europe with their eye-catching run during qualifying for next year’s European Championships, they have shown some signs of a recent struggle.

Blown away as they played out a 7-1 drumming against defending world champions France on foreign soil earlier in the week, Saturday’s guests were also last seen in this year’s tournament getting hit with a 4-0 defeat against Spain on the road.

You might be interested to know, with Germany picking up a 2-0 win they last time they faced off against Ukraine back in 2016, a similar away victory this weekend can be found priced at 4/11 with Unibet.

Ukraine’s defensive headache

Shocking almost everyone across the continent as they romped their way to next year’s delayed European Championships, Ukraine clinched top spot in Group B over Portugal and the Yellows had to feel of a side really turning a corner.

While Andriy Shevchenko’s men might have stormed their way to EURO 2021 without tasting defeat in their eight qualifying appearances, they have shown some signs of a struggle since opening 2020.

Although the former AC Milan icon might have seen his side make a return to action with a 2-1 win against Switzerland in their Nations League opener last month, Ukraine were completely blown away in Paris earlier in the week.

Leaving the defending world champions on the wrong end of a 7-1 hammering, Shevchenko’s men were also last seen on Nations League duties shipping a quartet of strikes against Spain on their travels.

While Ukraine might have continued to impress on home soil, they have shipped 11 goals in back-to-back defeats and can be found priced at 1/2 with William Hill to once again ship over 1.5 goals on Saturday night.

The German draw specialists

Although Germany might have also managed to storm their way to next year’s European Championships after what was a free-scoring run of form in Group C, the Whites claimed top spot over bitter rivals Holland and the mood in their camp was on the rise.

However, while they might have signed off their qualifying campaign with a 6-1 romp against Northern Ireland last year, Joachim Löw’s youngsters have struggled to find their feet since opening the New Year.

Although they saw Turkey’s arrival in an international friendly on Wednesday night as a golden chance to pick up a morale-boost, the former world champions were hit with a last-gasp 3-3 draw in Koln.

Still showing some of the defensive issues that saw them receive a string of criticism at the 2018 World Cup finals, Germany have also only managed to open up this year’s Nations League campaign with another pair of stalemates.

Having to settle for back-to-back 1-1 draws against Spain and Switzerland last month, Saturday’s guests have now drawn each of their last three matchups on the spin.
