Scotland News and Form

Scotland have taken a W2 D2 record from their four games so far in the qualifiers. Things got off to a poor start for them with a disappointing 3-0 away defeat at Kazakhstan, before the Scots produced less than convincing back to back wins over San Marino and Cyprus. But then in another big away game, Scotland lost 3-0 in Belgium. So they haven’t lived up to the tougher challenges in the group and need a special night on Friday.

A win pulls them level with Russia and keeps their qualification hopes alive. Scotland did win their Nations League Group which gives them a guaranteed berth in the play-offs should they fail to get an automatic qualification spot from this group. That may well come into play. Scotland are W4 D1 L1 in their last six European Championship home qualifiers and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four on home soil.

Russia News and Form

Russia started their qualification campaign with a loss against Belgium. But have responded with three straight wins to put themselves in a strong position. The Russians have scored fourteen goals in their last three qualifiers. They are rock solid favourites to join Belgium as the automatic qualifiers from Group I. Three points out of this one would see them take a huge step towards the Finals.

The loss against Belgium at the start of this qualification campaign is the only game that Russia have failed to win in their last eight European Championship qualifiers. In their last seven match wins in European Championship qualifiers, Russia have conceded just one goal in total. Away from home in qualifiers Russia are W4 L1 in their last five, scoring at least two goals in each of those victories. They are carrying the form with them and even in their loss in Belgium they still got themselves on the scoresheet. Russia will carry a sizeable threat to Scotland in this game.

Who will win – Scotland v Russia Predictions

Russia look strong enough to go and raid Hampden Park. If that happens that would all but settle the qualification issues realistically (not mathematically), in Group I. Russia to win and both teams to score looks a reasonable proposition for the game.
