MOTD Live: UEFA Euro 2024 – Slovakia vs. Ukraine (BBC One, 2024)

Match of the Day

On 21 June 2024, BBC One presents coverage of the UEFA Euro 2024 Group E match between Slovakia and Ukraine. The game, which marks the second group fixture for both sides, takes place at the Dusseldorf Arena.

Gabby Logan hosts, with commentary by Steve Bower and Martin Keown, as the two teams face off in a highly competitive group. Both Slovakia and Ukraine have recent experience finishing third in their respective groups during the Euro finals. However, only Ukraine progressed to the knockout stages three years ago, edging out their opponents due to a superior goal difference.

Ukraine’s narrow advancement, coupled with Slovakia’s decisive loss to Spain, sets an intriguing backdrop for this encounter. Adding to the narrative is the teams’ previous meeting in the UEFA Nations League in 2018, where Ukraine emerged victorious with a comprehensive 4-1 scoreline.

Now, as they clash once more, the question of who will prevail in this group remains open. With Slovakia aiming to rebound from their previous tournament exit and Ukraine seeking to replicate their knockout stage success, the stage is set for a tense contest.
