The final group stage match is here as Ukraine battles Belgium on Wednesday in Germany. We're here to share our Euro odds series, make a Ukraine-Belgium prediction, and pick while showing you how to watch.

The Ukraine defeated Slovakia 2-1 in the second match of the group stage. Initially, they trailed 1-0 after allowing a goal to Ivan Schranz in the 17th minute. It was 1-0 at halftime, and Slovakia held a tight lead going into the second half. Then, Mykola Shaparenko came off a pass from Oleksandr Zinchenko and found the back of the net in the 54th minute to make it 1-1.

The pivotal play came when Roman Yaremchuk came off a pass from Shaparenko to blast it past the goalkeeper and give Ukraine the lead. Consequently, it was enough to finish things off as they held on for the win.

Belgium defeated Romania 2-0 in the second match of the group stage. Now, they are closer to advancing to the Round of 16. Things started ridiculously fast, as Youri Tielemans found the back of the net on a brilliant Romelu Lukaku setup to give Belgium the lead in the second minute. Later, the Belgians scored in the 80th minute when Kevin Du Bruyne kicked one in on a spectacular setup from goalkeeper Koen Casteels. Belgium would not need any more scoring en route to a victory.

Ukraine and Belgium have played each other just five times in their collective history. Significantly, they have each won two matches, with the other being a draw, which also happened to be the result of their last meeting in 2020.

Why Ukraine Will Win

The Breadbasket of Europe certainly made a case for themselves in this one. After stumbling out of the gate early on, Ukraine ensured they could not falter. The Ukrainians fired off 11 shots, including four that hit the net. Additionally, the 86 percent pass accuracy was a thing of beauty. The only main issue Ukraine endured was its low possession rate, which was just 45 percent. Also, Ukraine had just four offsides and even committed one yellow card.

After stumbling in the Euro opener against Romania and not scoring a single goal, Ukraine did its work. Overall, it ended up being a total of 99 minutes without a goal to open the Euro 2024. But Ukraine scored when it needed to.

Yaremchuk did his past and now has one goal in two matches to go with four shots. Meanwhile, Shaparenko had a brilliant performance, generating one goal and one assist. The tag team of Yaremchuk and Shaparenko was magical, and the two showed the world what they were capable of when they played in a fluid motion.

But Mykhailo Mudryk still has not scored. Unfortunately, he has not found his way around the net and has not been able to generate any scoring opportunities. Artem Dovbyk has two shots, but he still has not found the back of the net nor gained a point.

Zinchenko was effective in more ways than one. Significantly, he generated an assist on offense and then delivered five clears on defense. Zinchenko currently has eight clears and will be more important than ever as he faces off against Lukaku and the Belgians.

Ukraine will cover the spread if Yaremchuk and Shaparenko can replicate their magic and find ways to create multiple goals. Then, they need to stop Lukaku and not allow him to spring past the defense.

Why Belgium Will Win

Belgium finally found its footing (pun intended). Amazingly, Lukaku and the Belgians looked exactly like the squad we expected to see when the Euros began. Belgium fired 20 shots, including 10 that hit the target. Furthermore, the passes were crisp, as the players connected on 89 percent of their pass attempts. Belgium also had a 55 percent possession rate.

Lukaku was efficient, with an assist and five shots, including three shots that hit the target. Yet, he is still searching for his first goal in the Euros and may do it here. Jeremy Doku was quiet for over 72 minutes, managing just one shot but 28 passes.

De Bruyne helped seal the deal, and finished with one goal on six shots, including three on target. However, Amadou Onana was silent, not generating a single shot. But Tielemans helped make up for it over 72 minutes with his goal. His 50 passes also helped keep the ball away from Romania.

Belgium was stout on defense, generating a 56 percent tackle success rate. Amazingly, Timothy Castagne was superb again, with nine tackles, six clears, and four interceptions. Jan Vertonghen added some help with six tackles, six clears, and two interceptions. Likewise, Wout Faes had 10 tackles, three clears, and an interception. They all helped Casteels, who finished with three saves while pitching a shutout.

Belgium will win this match if Lukaku can continue to power the offense. Then, Castagne needs to continue his elite play on defense.

Final Ukraine-Belgium Prediction & Pick

Belgium started the Euros with a misstep, falling to Slovakia. However, they bounced back in a significant way and found a way to stay alive in the Euros. Belgium is miles better than Ukraine in talent. Therefore, Lukaku and the forwards should do everything they can to capitalize on crisp passes from the midfielders. The defense will shut down the Ukrainian attack and ensure a victory. Give Belgium the nod here, and watch them advance to the Round of 16.
