Romania vs Ukraine Preview 


Romania haven’t won a single match in 2024, failing to beat minnows Bulgaria and Liechtenstein. Ukraine have huge scoring potential with Mudryk and Dovbyk, so I will back them to claim three points on Monday.

  • Romania are winless in their last 4 matches. 
  • Ukraine have won 5 of their last 8 matches. 
  • Ukraine’s Artem Dovbyk has scored 24 goals in his 36 matches (La Liga). 

Head to Head 


Romania and Ukraine locked horns 6 times so far and the score is tied 3-3. 

They last met in May 2016, the game being won by Ukraine 4-3. 

Romania Form 


Romania are coming off two disappointing performances in friendly matches against Liechtenstein and Bulgaria last week, both ending without goals in Bucharest. 

They qualified for Euro 2024 by topping Group I with 22 points (six wins, four draws), ahead of Switzerland, Israel, Belarus, Kosovo and Andorra. 

The Tricolours kicked off this year by playing two international friendlies, starting with a 1-1 draw at home against Northern Ireland, Jamie Reid breaking the deadlock early while Dennis Man scored an equalizer also in the first half. 

Romania then faced Colombia on a neutral pitch in Madrid and lost 3-2 to the South American side. They conceded three unanswered goals before Ianis Hagi and Florin Tanase scored late consolation goals. 

Romania Squad & Team News 


Goalkeepers: Florin Nita, Horatiu Moldovan, Stefan Tarnovanu, Razvan Sava  
Defenders: Nicusor Bancu, Andrei Burcă, Ionuț Nedelcearu, Adrian Rus, Andrei Rațiu, Radu Dragușin, Vasile Mogoș, Bogdan Racovitan  
Midfielders: Nicolae Stanciu (captain), Razvan Marin, Alexandru Cicaldau, Ianis Hagi, Dennis Man, Valentin Mihaila, Marius Marin, Darius Olaru, Deian Sorescu, Florinel Coman, Adrian Sut, Constantin Grameni  
Forwards: George Puscas, Denis Alibec, Denis Dragus, Daniel Birligea  

Denis Alibec is doubtful for this match. 

Ukraine Form 


Ukraine are one of rare Euro 2024 participants who played three warm-up matches in June. They started the tourney with a goalless draw against Germany, followed by a 3-1 defeat to Poland in Warsaw. 

The Blue and Yellow returned to winning ways last week with a commanding 4-0 victory against Moldova in Chisinau, Roman Yaremchuk and Viktor Tsygankov on target in the first half, Artem Dovbyk and Heorhii Sudakov finishing the job later. 

Ukraine had to find their Euro 2024 ticket through the UEFA Nations League playoffs after ending 3rd in the qualifying Group C behind England and Italy.  

Sergey Rebrov’s side was in a difficult position in the playoff semifinals against Bosnia & Herzegovina after Mykola Matviienko scored an own goal in the second half. Roman Yaremchuk found the equalizer in 85th minute, while Artem Dovbyk scored the winner just a couple of minutes later.  

Ukraine then proceeded to beat Iceland 2-1 in the playoff finals to secure a spot in Euro 2024. They were down by one goal in that clash as well, Viktor Tsygankov’s and Mikhaylo Mudryk’s goals then turning things around in the second half. 

Ukraine Squad & Team News 


Goalkeepers: Heorhiy Bushchan, Andriy Lunin, Anatoliy Trubin  
Defenders: Mykola Matviyenko, Vitaliy Mykolenko, Illya Zabarnyi, Oleksandr Tymchyk, Yukhym Konoplya, Bohdan Mykhaylichenko, Oleksandr Svatok, Valeriy Bondar, Maksym Talovyerov  
Midfielders: Andriy Yarmolenko (captain), Taras Stepanenko, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Serhiy Sydorchuk, Ruslan Malinovskyi, Viktor Tsyhankov, Oleksandr Zubkov, Mykola Shaparenko, Mykhailo Mudryk, Heorhiy Sudakov, Volodymyr Brazhko  
Forwards: Roman Yaremchuk, Artem Dovbyk, Vladyslav Vanat  

Vitaliy Mykolenko is injured. 

Andriy Yarmolenko has the highest number of appearances for the national team on this roster (119) and is also the top scorer (46 goals). 

Verdict

Romania failed to score in their recent contests against Bulgaria and Liechtenstein. Ukraine have plenty of top-tier players and I will back them to beat the struggling opposition.
