Hmm, Ukraine have got to win this game and pray other results give them a chance at finishing in one of the 4 3rd placed spots. Do they have any hope against a Poland side that have looked rock solid at the back and a handful going forward? Poland have a top 2 spot all wrapped up in all likelihood, but they'll be playing for the possibility of finishing top surely?

Hard to look past a Poland win.

I think Ukraine are out aren't they? If the points are tied it goes to h2h result so there's no way they can overtake NI.

Must say, for all of Poland's attacking talent (Lewandowski, Milik), they do seem quite reluctant to attack when they are a goal up. Kuba opened the score but since then it's been all Ukraine. Now Ukraine already know they're going home while Poland could actually finish top with a couple more. Baffling.

Impressive points haul for Poland out of 3 games, and are quite unlucky not to win the group with 7 points. Surprised they didn't try sticking a few more past Ukraine as Germany's lack of goal power meant it was a real possibility for them to win the group on goal difference. Poland look like they could have the potential to surprise a few and progress quite far with the attacking talent at their disposal, 3 clean sheets as well shows they have a decent back line. As for Ukraine they've been surprisingly poor after a decent opening display against Germany, they'll be disappointed they couldn't take at least 3rd spot in this group.
