ITALY WAS AFRAID, BUT ITALY QUALIFIED FOR THE EURO!
It’s over, 0-0 between Ukraine and Italy in Leverkusen. This means that the Nazionale will qualify for Euro 2024 and can defend its title. Ukraine will have to go through roadblocks.
Mudryk collapses in the Italian area! But no punishment
All Ukrainians claim a penalty after contact in the Italian area. But the referee doesn’t whistle anything, and the VAR doesn’t judge him. This is an action that should get people talking.
An attack-defense for the final minutes?
The Italian players are all in their last 30 meters as the Ukrainians turn the ball handball style.
Ukraine is still pushing
At this meeting, the dynamic was truly reversed. There are about ten minutes left and everything could still change.
Will the match change?
After an initial one-way ticket (or almost), Ukraine has suddenly woken up, while Italy is leaving more and more room… The Nazionale is not yet at the Euro, far from the !
Mudryk warns Donnarumma! Cold sweat for the Nazionale
And here is the Ukrainian opportunity! After a bad clearance, Gianluigi Donnarumma had to step in for Mudryk to avoid a big, big disappointment. Still 0-0, but it’s hot.
The Ukrainians are not giving up
Still under pressure from the Italians since the restart, the Ukrainians are not cracking for the time being. Do you see the beautiful robbery coming?

It’s half time, 0-0 between Ukraine and Italy!
It’s the break in Leverkusen. Despite its clear dominance, Italy failed to find fault against Ukraine in the first period. 0-0 in this decisive match for Euro 2024 qualification. La Nazionale are provisionally qualified. The second half promises to be hot!
Chiesa damages the Ukrainian defense
The Juventus striker puts a lot of desire into his initiatives. His percussion often makes the difference in the Ukrainian defense. It’s a bit fishy in the aftertaste. Ukraine suffers in this first period. Without breaking up so far.
Buffon tense in the stands
Gianluigi Buffon, Italy’s legendary former goalkeeper, seems very stressed in the stands. Still 0-0 between Ukraine and Italy in the 41st minute. The Nazionale is provisionally qualified, but with one goal everything can change…
The Italians monopolize the ball
The Nazionale masters its subject in the lair of Bayer Leverkusen. The Italians had a lot of ball possession (67%) after 34 minutes of play. 0-0 on the scoreboard. A score that currently qualifies Spalletti’s players.
Dimarco doesn’t fit
Inter’s full-back failed to find the target even though he was in a good position in the area. It is getting closer for the Italians. Still 0-0 against the Ukrainians in this match moved to Leverkusen (Germany).
The big opportunity for Frattesi
The Sassuolo midfielder, on loan from Inter this season, is perfectly launched into the depths by Chiesa, but he collides with the Ukrainian goalkeeper. Italy increased the pressure after half an hour of play, but were unable to score for the time being.
Di Lorenzo’s head next to it
The Napoli player places a header in the area, but the ball goes close to the post. Big blow for Ukraine. Still 0-0 in the 27th.
Italy qualified with a draw
The Nazionale can be satisfied with a draw to gain direct qualification for the 2024 European Championship. For the time being, this 0-0 score is a done deal. But a goal from Ukraine can change everything…
Things are tense between Ukraine and Italy
The tension is palpable in the BayArena in Leverkusen. Ukraine and Italy are still level in this decisive match for Euro 2024 qualification (0-0). The game has already been going on for 25 minutes.
Still no goal
The Italians demanded a penalty for a Ukrainian handball from a cross, but were not listened to. Well mentioned.
Chiesa misses at point blank range!
6 meters from the Ukrainian goal, after a return header, Chiesa does not find the goal and sees the ball go over.
Donnarumma is already involved
Long shot from Tsygankov, but the PSG goalkeeper is far to his left. We feel the players tense at the start of the match.
Let’s go to Leverkusen!
We remind you: the winner of the match will win his ticket to Euro 2024. And in the event of a draw, it will be Italy that will pass.
Place for hymns
The competition will start soon in Leverkusen.
