You might fancy a small upset of the Ukraine vs Slovenia odds
The two young nations’ teams have played each other four times before. All of their meetings came in EURO qualifiers with Slovenia registering two victories and the remaining two matches resulting draws. In 1999 they met in the playoffs with Slovenia advancing after winning the first leg on home turf 2–1 and playing a 1–1 draw in the reverse fixture in Ukraine.
Ukraine drew two out of their last five home games and those stalemates came in friendlies against Lithuania and Latvia. Slovenia haven’t drawn an away game since more than three years, and since successful sports betting strategies also have to consider probability distribution, you should expect an away draw from them sooner or later. BetVictor has tempting odds for a tie…

Find your safe bet in Ukraine vs Slovenia odds!
Though Slovenia have played six and five-goal matches this year, their upcoming encounter will hardly be a goal festival. This will be a tight game, maybe even boring for certain periods, and in the end a one or two-goal encounter is expected. This will get you your safe bet.
Quick betting line 2: under 2.5 goals for 1.53 (8/15) at BetVictor
Ukraine to advance?
Slovenia’s golden generation is long gone and though Ukraine are also well over the times when Andriy Shevchenko and Serhiy Rebrov led the attack, they are the stronger side currently and they have some demons to exorcise. Well, a Ukraine side at a major tournament is anything but a warranty for exciting football, but the Yellow-blue should eventually advance against the team that oddly doesn’t have a nickname.
