Ukraine travel to Scotland to play in the Nations League on Wednesday night but will be without an injured Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Zinchenko, who plays at his football club for Arsenal, is one of the national team’s talismans and it’s a big blow for them not to have him on the scoresheet.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta had been coy about Zinchenko’s injury ahead of their game against Brentford last Saturday, saying he could play despite being ruled out of international injury duty. But Zinchenko sat out the 3-0 Premier League win and Arteta continued to be elusive around his injuries and those of Martin Odegaard.
He told Sky Sports: “They are both injured and not available for the game. I don’t know, we have the international break at the moment so it will give us a break [on that]. These are two different things but we don’t know yet.
But who will line up for Ukraine and how will fans be able to watch? Here’s everything you need to know.
When is it?
The match kicks off at 7:45 p.m. BST on Wednesday, September 21.
How can I watch?
The game will be available to watch on ITV4 and ITV Hub. The Premier Sports streaming service will also show the game.
For Scotland, Andy Robertson will not be available due to a knee injury and Ross Stewart and Lewis Ferguson will not be in the squad.
Ukraine, meanwhile, will be without injured Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Scotland XI: Gordon; McTominay, Tierney, Hanley; Hickey, McGregor, Gilmour, Jack; McGinn, Christie; Adam
Ukraine XI: Pyatov; Karavaev, Zabarnyi, Matvienko, Mykolenko; Malinovskyi, Stepanenko, Sobol; Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Tsygankov
Scotland – 29/20
Draw – 2/1
Ukraine – 2/1
It will be a revenge mission for Scotland after losing the World Cup play-offs earlier this year, but Ukraine should have enough to rise to the challenge. Scotland 1-2 Ukraine.
