UKR Vs SPA Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Group D leaders Spain fast affirming their stature in the pinnacles of the points tally.
They might not have been at their sparkling and charismatic best against Switzerland but what matters is that the side managed to register its second win on the bounce on the day. They were made to huff and puff on the day but Spain’s 1-0 win on the day showed that this side can dig deep when asked to, traits which will serve them well in the 2020-21 edition of the UEFA Nations League.
The result not only extended the side’s winning spree but also saw the team further nail down top spot in Group D in its favour. And with Germany slowly settling into their stride to breathe down the Spanish outfit’s neck, Spain know every win at the moment counts towards assuring themselves of first place.
Its this narrative which will see them come hot out of the blocks when they take on a crumbling Ukraine outfit today. After their opening win against Switzerland, Ukraine have gone onto lose two in succession, a side fast losing relevance in the ongoing edition of the marquee tournament.
UKR Vs SPA Fantasy Probable Winner
Ukraine’s defensive setup has been a massive plight for the side. And with a string of injuries rocking their squad, this Ukraine outfit makes for a timid unit, a meek outfit which will end up getting clobbered by Spain today.

Georgi Bushchan from Ukraine will be instilled in our side as the goal-keeper for the imminent encounter. He was the only reason Ukraine managed to dish out a solid challenge to the Germans the last time around as he accrued save after save to keep his team in the tie.
Their cleansheet in the 1-0 win against Switzerland now sees Spain having kept two on the bounce. This is the most efficient defensive setup in the competition, a side which has let in a measly one goal past it.
No one has been able to perturb Spain defensively and neither will Ukraine. Akin to the last meeting between the two, this has all the makings of a cleansheet for Spain as well to see us opt for their entire backline.
We begin with captain Sergio Ramos who has continued in his free scoring ways here as well to accumulate two goals for the side. Jesus Navas who has the one assist, Jose Gaya with the one goal and Pau Torres all complete the quartet from the side.
The opposition meanwhile see Eduard Sobol make his way into our setup given his tackles and blocks against Germany.
He’s being made to wait for his chance but Dani Ceballos is all set to come out today The Arsenal midfielder has been in impressive form in the Premier League, a player defence to attack to with ease.
Ukraine on the other hand will find representation in a duo. Its one made up of the tenacious Viktor Tsyhankov and Viktor Kovalenko, two players who can instil in play a string of recoveries and aerial duels.
Rodrigo Moreno hasn’t played two now for Spain after his goal against Germany. Given the testing and gruelling schedule, he should be deployed by his side in attack today to see him become our first pick from the side.
Ansu Fati can easily score for his side today given Ukraine’s leaky defence and his electric form to see him complete the duo.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ramos’ two goals see him be our captain for the day while Moreno is the vice-captain.
Bushchan, Ramos, Navas, Torres, Gaya, Sobol, Viktor, Kovalenko, Dani, Fati, Moreno
