Romania vs Ukraine preview: ticket info, tv channel and team news

Posted by

Romania and Ukraine begin their Euro 2024 campaigns on Monday at the Allianz Arena in Munich with both teams looking to get off to the perfect start in a group where every point may be valuable.


Belgium are heavy favourites to progress from Group E but the other three teams will be fighting closely over the second and third spots.

Romania topped their qualifying group ahead of Switzerland and will be a tricky opponent for Ukraine, who needed to come through the play-offs after finishing third in Euro 2024 qualifying as England and Italy took the automatic spots.

The two teams have locked horns six times in all competitions, with four meetings being friendlies. The head-to-head record is even, with three wins each for either side.
