Group C saw North Macedonia become the first nation to be eliminated from Euro 2020, while Netherlands have already booked their place in the round of 16.

But sandwiched between the winners and losers are Ukraine and Austria, level on three points and going head to head in the final match of the group stages. Ukraine need only a draw to finish second in Group C, while Austria's inferior goal difference means they will have to beat their rivals to guarantee a place in the knockout rounds.

The two sides are very evenly matched, having both lost to Netherlands and won against North Macedonia. This clash is about as balanced as European Championship clashes come, and it promises to be a pulsating evening of football.

Here's everything you need to know about the big decider.

Ukraine boss Andriy Shevchenko may still be without Oleksandr Zubkov, with the midfielder a doubt having missed the win over North Macedonia last week.

Aside from that, Shevchenko is likely to name a similar team.

Marko Arnautovic is available again having served a suspension for 'insulting another player' during the win against North Macedonia.

They have no injury worries, but the performance in defeat to the Netherlands was poor and changes may be made.


Our 21's One to Watch

Christoph Baumgartner has started the previous two matches for Austria in the Euro 2020 tournament, but the return of talisman Arnautovic could see him drop to the bench.

Let's hope the starlet is given his chance to prove his worth.

Ukraine and Austria have rarely met, only facing off twice in the past ten years. As you'd expect from these two, the outcomes have been incredibly even. Ukraine edged the first meeting with a 2-1 victory, while Austria got their revenge in 2012, winning 3-2 in an exciting affair.

Arnautovic grabbed a brace on that day...same again this time round?


Ukraine vs Austria predicted lineups

Ukraine: Bushchan; Karavayev, Zabarnyi, Matviyenko, Mykolenko; Shaparenko, Stepanenko, Zinchenko; Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Malinovskiy.

Austria: Bachmann; Dragovic, Alaba, Hinteregger; Lainer, Laimer, Schlager, Sabitzer, Ulmer; Kalajdzic, Arnautovic.

Austria need the win in this game, but for us, we just can't see it happening. Ukraine look a much more organised and dangerous outfit, and there is something a bit off about Austria's team spirit this year.

Both sides have got goals in them, and the returning Arnautovic certainly adds an extra edge to Das Team's forward line. Yarmolenko is in electric form though, and we can see him making the difference in this winner-takes-all battle.

Prediction: Ukraine 2-1 Austria
