World Cup Qualifiers: Wales vs Ukraine H2H Prediction

The final World Cup qualifying game has reached its business end as Wales and Ukraine will meet on Sunday at Cardiff Stadium in an attempt to end their World Cup qualification wait.

Wales vs Ukraine: Match Preview

This match will be filled with mixed emotions, and it will be one of the most important fixtures for both countries. 

Ukraine, which upset Scotland in their last match of the World Cup play-off, is going through one of the darkest periods in its history as Russia's invasion of Ukraine continues.

Despite going through difficult circumstances at home, the Blue and Yellow have made certain that they would not lose out on a chance to reach their first World Cup. Their performance against Scotland underlined that they are not here to be pitied. 

When the players get onto the field, emotions, empathy, and pain wither away, and the emphasis switches to the game. If they reach the World Cup, it will be one of the most important occasions for the country and its people.

Wales are on the same path; they overcame Austria 2-0 and are currently 90 minutes away from reaching their first World Cup since 1958. 

Now that it is down to the last game to determine fate, Gareth Bale and company will be driven to lead the squad, just as they did in reaching the Euro 2016 semi-finals and the Euro 2020 last 16, and now the World Cup is closer than ever. 

These are the moments they will remember for years to come, as reaching the World Cup after 1958 will be remembered as one of Wales' finest achievements.

Wales vs Ukraine: Prediction 

This contest will determine the most deserving side to reach the football's most prestigious tournament. Ukraine are filled with emotion, yet they put all aside and routed Scotland 3-1 in their backyard. And Wales should not be complacent since Ukraine is just as eager as them to book their place in World Cup.

At times, Wales relies on its great players to carry them, as seen by Bale's spectacular performance against Austria. Wales will be expecting the former Real Madrid player to provide another masterpiece.

Meanwhile, Ukraine are built on teamwork and will want to identify Wales' shortcomings. On the other hand, the Dragons are a better squad and should beat Ukraine.

Prediction: Wales 2-1 Ukraine
