Possible tactic

Shevchenko is likely to deploy more pragmatic or defensive formation to face off Der Panzer. 5-3-2 seems to be a proper one to avoid another big loss against the high-profile team such as Germany. Since a number of well-known names such as Olexander Zichenko, Marlos, Junior Moraes and Yevhen Konoplyanka did not get the pick here, Ruslan Malinovsky and Andrey Yarmolenko will be given more attacking role upfront as well as the midfielder to help win the ball and shoot from long range strike when necessary to stun their contender.

Joachim Loew still tends to opt for 4-3-3 formation with Leroy Sane, Timo Werner and Serge Gnarby on the attack. Meanwhile, Chelsea man, Kai Havertz can operate behind them as the number ten role supported by Ilkay Gundogan and Toni Kroos or Joshua Kimmich.

Players to watch

In Ukraine’s current squad, only two famous key men who are likely to lead the team in these upcoming two games. They are Atalanta’s versatile midfielder Ruslan Malinovsky is capable of playing as box-to-box midfielder, attacking midfielder and occasionally as the striker and West Ham winger Andrey Yarmolenko.
