Ukraine 

Unbeaten but winless in World Cup qualifying, Ukraine's tally of four draws and four points from four matches is enough to see them occupy second spot in the group with an identical tally of five goals scored and conceded, but that highly sought-after victory still eludes them.

France

Wednesday's draw with Bosnia means that France have now gone four games without a win in any competition, but not since 2013 have Les Bleus strung together a five-game winless run, during which they failed to score even one goal in that ill-fated period.

 

Griezmann and Serhiy Sydorchuk were on target as France and Ukraine played out a 1-1 draw in qualifying back in March, but Les Bleus previously thrashed their opponents 7-1 in an October 2020 friendly and have lost just one of their 11 clashes with this weekend's hosts.

Prediction:

Ukraine are no pushovers, and their resilient nature has been there for all to see since qualifying kicked off, but four games without a win does spell concern for new manager Petrakov. France's winless run may also lead to some apprehension creeping in for the visiting camp, but we are still confident in Les Bleus' ability to grind out a narrow but vital win to extend their lead at the top.
