A victory will see any of these teams progress to the last 16.

Ukraine’s campaign started poorly after they lost the opening match against Romania to begin their Euro 2024 tenure. However, they bounced back in the last match to register an impressive win over Slovakia to keep their chances alive in the competition.

Goals from Mykola Shaparenko and Roman Yaremchuk secured the victory for them. However, their chances hinge on this match as all the teams are tied on the same points in the group. They cannot afford to slip up in this match as there are no more games left. 

Belgium have endured a mixed start in the tournament after gathering one win and a loss in the opening two matches. The Red Devils put on a lacklustre display in the opening match, missing various chances to win the match, ultimately losing 1-0 to Slovakia on matchday 1.

However, they did bounce back in the last match to register an important win over Romania to keep their hopes alive in the competition. This match remains crucial for them as things are getting interesting in the group with all four teams with equal points, three each. A win here will seal the deal for them, to reach the last 16.

Kick-Off:

Wednesday, 26 June at 9:30 PM IST

Location – MHP Arena

Form:

Ukraine (in all competitions): D-L-W-L-W

Belgium (in all competitions): D-W-W-L-W

Player to Watch

Mykola Shaparenko (Ukraine) 

Mykola Shaparenko has been the best player for Ukraine in these opening matches after playing a crucial role for the team in the last match. He scored a crucial goal to level up the score against Slovakia while providing the assist for the match-winner to keep Ukraine in the competition. Shaparenko is excellent at carrying the ball forward but is equally adept at doing the defensive duties brilliantly. 

Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium) 

Kevin De Bruyne has continued his excellent form in Euros so far after helping them register an important win over Romania in the last match to keep their hopes alive. He has created the most chances in the opening matches (7) while also making eight recoveries and winning 16 duels. After an impressive campaign where he netted six goals and provided 17 assists for Manchester City, he will be aiming to lead Belgium to victory here.
