World Cup – Qualification: Scotland vs England Betting Tip and Prediction. In the Round 6 of the qualification for the World Cup 2018, in Group F, Scotland host England at Hampden Park on Saturday night. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Scotland vs England.
Scotland stand at the 4th position in the Group F in the qualification for the World Cup 2018 and they still have a chance to reach the global football championship. It’s hard to believe that they can finish at the first position, but they will try to reach the second position and try to qualify through play-off. The match against England is crucial for home national team and if they lose this game, the second position could be out of their reach. It won’t be an easy job because visitors have very strong squad, but they believe that can make good result upfront their supporters. In the first game between Scotland vs England, English side beat them 3-0, so it will be interesting to see is the home team ready for revenge. In the last game, Scotland have managed to beat Slovenia and stayed in the race for the second position, but they have to take at least one point against England in order to keep the chance to qualify on World Cup next year.
England stand at the top of the table and they are on a good way to qualify directly on World Cup 2018. They are the only football national team in Group F without defeat and the only one who hasn’t conceded a single goal yet. The match against Scotland is very important for visitors and with their win on Saturday night they could make the big step forward to play on the World Cup in Russia next year. In the first match between these two teams, England didn’t have many problems and beat Scotland 3-0, so they expect another good performance and another three points. Visitors have amazing defence and in the all five games they have clean sheets, so they want to secure their net in this game and try to make something in the attack. Harry Kane had amazing season in Premier League and became the top scorer, so he could be the most dangerous player for home defence.
Home side has almost full squad available, except Steven Fletcher who is doubtful for this game. On the other side, visitors will be without Nathaniel Clyne, while Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott stayed at home.
