UKR vs FRA Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Ukraine vs France World Cup Qualifiers Live Score September 5


UKR vs FRA Dream11: It’s a clash between first and second in group D as Ukraine welcome France to Kyiv on Saturday for the match-day 5 game of the 2022 World Cup qualifying group. Ukraine have remarkably drawn all four of their opening matches of World Cup qualifying and they would likely settle for the same outcome as they host world champions France in their latest contest. The Ukrainians were held by Kazakhstan on Thursday in their first game back in action since the European Championship while the French could not overcome Bosnia-Herzegovina. Their efforts were not helped by a red card early in the second half but it was a disappointing result nonetheless and while they will be eager to respond.

Date: September 5, Sunday
Kick-Off: 12:15 AM (IST)

UKR vs FRA Dream 11 Teams

GK: Lloris
DEF: Varane, Dubois, Zabarnyi, Mykolenko
MID: Sobol, Griezmann, Rabiot
FOR: Lemar, Benzema, Yaremchuk

Likely Winner:

  • Ukraine were surprising held to a 2-2 draw with Kazakhstan on Wednesday, while France were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with Bosnia down to 10 men. France are top of Group D and four points clear of Ukraine, so victory here would most likely seal top spot.
  • Ukraine have remarkably drawn all four of their group matches to date. On their day they can spring an upset on any side but they have struggled for consistency. They were thrashed 7-1 by France in a friendly last year but did at least hold them to a draw in the reverse meeting in World Cup qualification.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a win for France in this clash is 1.13.
