Austria's talisman Marko Arnautovic is back after serving a one-match ban for his controversial goal celebration against North Macedonia.
Foda is expected to go with a full strength side, although David Alaba, Daniel Bachmann and Stefan Lainer are all a yellow card away from a ban.
Ukraine stars Mykola Shaparenko and Serhiy Sydorchuk are also at risk of suspension, but Shevchenko must treat the game as a knock-out and pick his strongest team.

Ukraine are missing Oleksandr Zubkov after he went off injured against the Netherlands.
They could also be without injured defender Denys Popov, who has a calf problem.
The Dynamo Kiev player was on the bench for his side's loss to the Netherlands and missed the second match against North Macedonia.
Ukraine coach Andriy Shevchenko said: "There's a high chance he [Popov] won't be playing."
Austria welcome back Marko Arnautovic from a one-game ban after his controversial celebration against North Macedonia.
Austria coach Franco Foda has already confirmed that the forward will start against Ukraine.
“We decided that Marko will play from the start,” he said.
“That means our opponents know that now and can prepare for it, but we are happy that he can play again.
“But we are not dependent only on Marko. He has his ability and quality, but many players have to take on responsibility.”

Austria must win to finish second, or they’ll have to rely on being one of the best four third-place finishers.
The Netherlands have already sealed top spot in the group, while North Macedonia are certain to finish bottom.
Both sides have one win and one defeat from their opening two games after beating North Macedonia and losing to the Netherlands.
