Ukraine close out their group stage by playing Austria in Buchareast at Arena Nationala with an exciting encounter shaping up. 12 matches are to be played in round 3 of the Euro 2020 and this one takes place on Monday. Ukraine bring a ranking of number 24 in the FIFA world charts to the table, sitting fairly close to Austria who come here with a ranking of number 23.
While winning is no longer a possibility a win would definitely see Ukraine reaching the next stage for the first time at a European Championship. A welcome revenge after the dismal tournament in 2016. A draw will probably also do a world of good for the Ukraine, who took first place in their qualifying group through a great campaign.
Austria head into their first match knowing they have real quality in their ranks, and they face exactly the same scenario as Ukraine. Top spot is not an option. A win takes them through as second while a draw most likely lets them through in 3rd place.
