Ukraine and Scotland meet in Krakow on Tuesday night as both sides seek promotion to the top tier of the Nations League.

Three wins on the bounce have Steve Clarke's Scots on the brink of promotion to League A, most recently coming from behind to beat the Republic of Ireland 2-1 thanks to goals from Jack Hendry and Ryan Christie.

Ukraine vs Scotland prediction

Scotland have had two rather draining games against Ukraine and the Republic of Ireland - though they came through both with victories - and head to Poland with a number of key players missing.

Ukraine will be fired up themselves, having coasted past Armenia, and only a win here will do if they want to top the group.

It'll be an evening filled with anxiety for Tartan Army fans, but they may well scrape the result they need to go up.

Prediction: Ukraine 1-1 Scotland
