Scotland v Belgium betting preview
Scotland have failed to score against Belgium in the last 5 direct encountersScotland’s chances of making Euro 2020 via qualifiers have drastically reduced following Friday’s 2-1 home defeat by Russia,leaving them fourth in the group and six points off the qualifying positions. John McGinn took advantage of a goalkeeping error to put the Tartan Army ahead, but Artem Dzyuba’s equaliser and a Stephen O’Donnell own goal saw the visitors eventually claim a deserved success. The Scots have lost their last two qualifying games but are assured of a play-off spot thanks to their Nations League success. Steve Clarke’s men are a tough nut to crack - they have not conceded more than twice in any of their last 10 competitive home matches.
Grant Hanley and Scott McKenna remain injured, meaning that Leeds captain Liam Cooper is expected to retain his starting berth over Aberdeen's Michael Devlin and David Bates. Sheffield United's Ollie McBurnie remains up top despite his recent controversy and is likely to lead the line. A five-man midfield will see a recall for experienced player such as Robert Snodgrass and Stuart Armstrong. The likes of Scott McTominay, Ryan Fraser and John McGinn will complete the midfield, with James Forrest providing a viable alternative.
Belgium have won nine of their 11 matches since last summer’s World CupBelgium have rattled off five straight wins in Group I, with 15 goals scored and only one conceded. They cruised to a comfortable 4-0 triumph in San Marino, with Michy Batshuayi (2), Dries Mertens and Nacer Chadli on the scorecards. Roberto Martinez's men have recorded 9 win in the last 11 outings, although a 5-2 defeat to Switzerland saw them miss out on the UEFA Nations League Finals on goal difference. Belgium and Scotland last met in June for a Euro Qualification match. The The Red Devils won the match with a 3-0 scoreline. Lukaku bagged a brace for Belgium.
Eden and Thorgan Hazard both withdrew from the squad, joining Leandro Trossard and goalkeeper Koen Casteels on the sidelines. Romelu Lukaku has been rested last time out and is likely to replace Michy Batshuayi upfront, flanked by Fernando Carrasco and Dries Mertens. The likes of Thomas Meunier and Nacer Chadli should start as wing backs, with Youri Tielemans and Kevin De Bruyne playing in the engine room. Jason Denayer will join Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld at the back, giving that Vincent Kompany has retired from international football.
