Ukraine will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing late defeat to Holland as they prepare for their second clash of Euro 2020 against minnows North Macedonia.

Andriy Shevchenko's side battled back from two down against the Dutch to draw level, only to concede a late deciding goal.

North Macedonia were also on their way to a point in their meeting with Austria until two late goals sealed their 3-1 defeat.

Both will be looking to win this game to have a chance of qualifying from the group.

Fans in Bucharest are still able to pick up tickets for the match, with a number still on sale and available on the UEFA website.

Expected lineups

Andriy Shevchenko's side will likely use the same 4-3-3 shape that they utilised in the opener.

Ukraine are likely to start with an almost identical side to the team which lost against Holland.

However, right-winger Oleksandr Zubkov is likely to be replaced by either Marlos or Viktor Tsygankov, after the 24-year-old was substituted early on against the Netherlands, after sustaining a foot injury.

Ukraine: Heorhiy Bushchan; Karavayev, Zabarnyi, Matvyenko, Mykolenko; Malinovsky, Sydorchuk, Zinchenko; Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Marlos.

North Macedonia are also expected to start with the same lineup and system. Igor Angelovski's side use a 3-5-2 formation.

North Macedonia: Dimitrievski; S.Ristevski, Velkovski, Musliu; Nikolov, Bardhi, Ademi, Elmas, Alioski; Pandev, Trajkovski.

Both Trajkovski and Alioski recieved booking in their first game, and are consequently one booking away from a suspension.

Captain Goran Pandev will lead the team from the front, after he became his country's oldest ever goalscorer, after his goal against Austria.

Austria are currently top of Group C, with 3 points and a goal difference of +3, whilst the Netherlands are in second place, on 3 points, but with a goal difference of +1.

The final round of Group C matches will be played on Friday 21 June, with Ukraine playing Austria, and North Macedonia playing the Netherlands.
