Sky Bet Preview

Group H leaders England are favourites to take a giant step towards automatic qualification for next year’s World Cup with a win in Ukraine.

The visitors will no doubt be set up to avoid defeat, which would see them maintain control of the group and their odds to top the table come in from 4/11 with Sky Bet.

Ukraine are 11/5 to come out on top, while Montenegro are not out of the equation, though they’re 14/1 to gain the automatic spot having played a game more than their rivals.

England to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 have been popular in the Correct Score Group Betting, but Ukraine have kept four clean sheets on the trot and are 7/2 to win to nil.

Indeed, four of the last six meetings between these sides have been won to nil, three of which have been in England’s favour and they’re 3/1 to manage that feat again with the Football League’s title partner, Sky Bet.

England boss Roy Hodgson has injury and suspension worries up front, though, meaning Rickie Lambert looks set to lead the line after netting in both of his international appearances. 

The Southampton striker heads the goalscorer betting and is available at 7/1 to score first in our Price Boots, while Frank Lampard is 4/1 to score anytime on his 100th appearance for his country.
