It may be a surprise to some but after one match Ukraine is on top of the group. They defeated Sweden 2-1in their first match and were led by Shevchenko who scored both goals in what is likely his last tournament for the national team. Today Ukraine will need a big performance from their goal keeper because of the added pressure that France will put on goal as opposed to a much more conservative Sweden squad.
France is coming off a very hard-fought tie against rival England. France actually played pretty well from an offensive perspective taking every chance to attack the English defense. If there is one concern for the French it is how will their defensive pairing hold up against what is a pretty potent Ukraine offensive attack?
We like that France is going up against a team that does not nearly have the defense that the English team features. We think the Ukraine has had its one moment in this tournament with their win in the first game and they will come back to earth and lose to the French. We like France as a strong money line play in this one so prior to wagering check the sports odds.
