Mudryk alert Donnarumma!
And here is the Ukrainian opportunity! After a bad clearance, Gianluigi Donnarumma was forced to step in front of Mudryk to avoid a big, big disappointment. Still 0-0, but it’s hot.
The Ukrainians don’t give up
Still under pressure from the Italians since the restart, the Ukrainians are not cracking for the moment. Do you see the magnificent heist coming?

It’s halftime, 0-0 between Ukraine and Italy!
It’s the break in Leverkusen. Despite its clear domination, Italy failed to find the fault against Ukraine in the first period. 0-0 in this decisive match for qualification for Euro 2024. La Nazionale is qualified for the moment. The second half promises to be hot!
Chiesa hurts 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 little fishy in the finish. Ukraine suffers in this first period. Without breaking up until now.
Buffon tense in the stands
Gianluigi Buffon, the legendary former goalkeeper of Italy, seems very stressed in the stands. Still 0-0 between Ukraine and Italy in the 41st minute. The Nazionale is provisionally qualified, but everything could change on a goal…
The Italians monopolize the ball
The Nazionale masters its subject in the lair of Bayer Leverkusen. The Italians had a lot of possession after 34 minutes of play (67%). 0-0 on the scoreboard. A score which qualifies Spalletti’s players for the moment.
Dimarco does not fit
The Inter full-back did not find the target even though he was in a good position in the area. It’s getting closer for the Italians. Still 0-0 against the Ukrainians in this match relocated to Leverkusen (Germany).
The big opportunity for Frattesi
The Sassuolo midfielder, on loan this season from Inter, is perfectly launched in depth by Chiesa, but he comes up against the Ukrainian goalkeeper. Italy put the pressure on after half an hour of play, without managing to score for the moment.
Di Lorenzo’s head right 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 obtain direct qualification for Euro 2024. For the moment, with this 0-0, it is a done deal. But a goal from Ukraine can change everything…
It’s tense between Ukraine and Italy
The tension is palpable at the BayArena in Leverkusen. Ukraine and Italy are still tied in this decisive match for qualification for Euro 2024 (0-0). It’s been playing for 25 minutes.
Still no goal
The Italians demanded a penalty for a Ukrainian handball on a cross, but were not heard. Well Named.
Chiesa misses at point blank range!
6m from the Ukrainian goal, on a back header, Chiesa does not find the target and sees the ball go over.
Donnarumma already involved
Long shot from Tsygankov, but the PSG goalkeeper lies well 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 wins their ticket to Euro 2024. And in the event of a draw, it is Italy that passes.
Place for hymns
The match will start soon in Leverkusen.
