World Cup – Qualification: England vs Scotland

England vs Scotland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the the qualifying round for the World Cup 2018, in Group F, England host Scotland at Wembley. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between England vs Scotland.


England started the qualifications for the World Cup 2018 very good and after three rounds they are standing at the top of the table, in Group F. They are the main favorites to qualify directly on the World Football Championship, but they want to secure the first position as soon as possible. The first match in group against Slovakia was finished with the minimal victory of England national team. After that they beat Malta 2-0, while the last match against Slovenia was finished without goals. The match against Scotland is very important for home national team and they will try to do their best in order to win this game. They are the only team in this group that didn’t conceded a single goal and their defence is the best weapon. But, in order to secure three points home side have to improve their performance in the attack. Good news for their manager Gareth Southgate is that Harry Kane has recovered from an injury after seven weeks out and he will probably lead the attack. Home side are better and they are big favorites to win this game, but they will have to show that on the pitch.

Scotland didn’t make the best start in the qualifications for the World Cup 2018, but despite that fact they still have a chance to reach the World Cup 2018. After three rounds, visitors have four points, three points less than England. They know that will be very hard to finish at the first position, but they hope that can the second place and try to reach the World Championship through play-off. In the first round they smashed Malta 1-5, after that the match between Scotland vs Lithuania was finished without winner, while in the last round Slovakia beat them 3-0. One point against England would worth like victory, but it will be hard for them to secure their net. However, Scotland have nothing to lose and they will try to do their best in order to make good result. Visitors have some problems with injuries, especially in the defence, because Andrew Robertson, Kieran Tierney and Alan Hutton are all injured.

Team News

Home side miss goalkeeper Forster, Smalling, Alli and Drinkwatter, while Walker is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Hutton, Robertson and striker McCormack, while important midfielder Snodgrass is doubtful.

England: Hart, Clyne, Stones, Cahill, Rose, Henderson, Dier, Lallana, Walcott, Kane, Sterling.
