Spain will travel to Ukraine this Tuesday and hope to claim three points which will solidify their position in the group. Ukraine who put on a formidable performance against Germany will have to improve themselves a bit to stand a chance against the strong Spanish side.
Spain have a unbeaten record against Ukraine in official International matches. Ukraine and Spain have met 6 times so far and Spain have won 5 games out of those six. Ukraine managed to draw only one out of those six.
The Spaniards have a balanced squad with the correct mix of experience and young talent. The experience of stars like De Gea and Sergio Ramos will be a huge guiding factor for the youngsters like Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres.
Ukraine are one place above Switzerland in Group 4 and will definitely hope to take at least one point from this clash. Luis Enrique has changed the fortunes of Spain tremendously and has improved their performances too. Spain got the better of Ukraine when they last met with Sergio Ramos, Ferran Torres, and Ansu Fati getting their name on to the scoresheet.

But we expect Spain to get away with a 1 – 0 victory against Ukraine.
