Forecast for the match Ukraine – France September 4, 2021
At the official level, the teams have played four matches since 2012. At Euro 2012, France took the upper hand 2: 0.

There were two more friendly matches, France’s victories 4: 1 and 7: 1.
The game against France is the last attempt for Ukraine to fight for the first place in the group. In case of defeat, it is impossible to win back a seven-point handicap in the remaining three games. Ukraine plays at home, is motivated to win, so there is a chance that a strong attacking line will be able to score one goal. Forecast: “both will score – yes” with a coefficient of 2.10 on the line of 1xbet. Ukraine has scored in all four matches of the tournament and France has scored in 10 away games in a row.
