95%: the opponent of the national team of Ukraine in the playoffs of Euro-2024 qualifying is named
Ukraine's national football team is likely to play in the same pool as Israel, Finland, and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the playoffs for the 2024 European Championships if it fails to qualify for the tournament directly. "In the match on November 20, the Blue and Yellows will have to beat the Italians if they defeat North Macedonia two days earlier.
Famous journalist Artem Frankov wrote about this on his Telegram channel. If the Ukrainians take third place in the group, they will almost certainly be in the playoffs. Only the Serbs can prevent this if they manage to lose their five-point lead over Montenegro in the remaining two rounds.
If Serhiy Rebrov's team makes it to the playoffs, they will have to play two matches in March next year: a semifinal and a final to determine the Euro participant. Ukraine's opponent in the first match will be the Israelis (they may be ahead of Romania or Switzerland, but the chances of this happening are minimal). Moreover, our players will play away from home.
If successful, Ukraine's national team will compete with the strongest in the Bosnia and Herzegovina-Finland pairing in the battle for the European Championship (both teams will play in the playoffs).
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, on October 14, the Ukrainian national team beat North Macedonia in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, scoring a goal from forty meters. Two days later, the Blue and Yellows defeated Malta with Mykhailo Mudryk's debut goal and came in second in group standings.
