Ukraine vs Austria

1X2 / Moneyline
Pick: X
Odds: 2.03
Stake: 1

Match date: 21/06/2021

Here is the situation in Group C after two rounds. Netherlands beat Ukraine and Austria, and secured the first place regardless of the last round's results. It is also clear North Macedonia finished as last. The only open question is who will finish on the second place and who will finish on the third position. Having on mind that 4 best third-placed national teams will also qualify, this could be a "Win-Win" situation. Ukraine and Austria could secure the knock-out phase with a "friendly" draw. In that case Ukraine will finish as second due to better goal-difference. It is clear Ukrainian coach Shevchenko will be fully satisfied.

The question is about the Austrians, will they be satisfied with the third position? According to me - Yes. Four points should guarantee progress. About the next opponents. The second-placed will face the winners of Group A, probably Italy. The third-placed side will play with the best of Group E (maybe Spain) or Group F (could be France or Portugal, even Germany). So, why the Austrians would prefer Italy? I see no reason to risk. Finishing second or third doesn't means a difference, progressing is the only important thing for Foda.

Too bad the bookmakers are well aware of the situation and the odds for draw have dropped.
