The match was originally scheduled to take place in March but was postponed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. With football halted in the war-torn country, Ukraine have played charity friendlies in recent weeks against the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach, Empoli and Rijeka.
Whoever wins tonight’s emotional semi-final will go through to face Wales in Cardiff on Sunday, in what will be a winner-takes-all affair for a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The group-stage draw for Qatar has already taken place, meaning that the three countries know whoever comes out on top over the next week will go into Group B alongside England, Iran and the USA.

Scotland vs Ukraine prediction
With so much on the line, it’s unlikely to be a gung-ho appraoch from either side in the early stages at Hampden Park.
Scotland have not lost a World Cup qualifier on home soil since 2013 so go into the play-off as slight favourites, against a side dealing with so much off the pitch.
There’s very little to separate the two sides and home advantage could well edge the encounter in Scotland’s favour.
Scotland to win, 2-1.
