UEFA Euro 2020 qualifications/Scotland vs Belgium – There is no uncertainty in the Group I because Scotland underperformed and Belgium justifies expectations of being a great favourite to win the first place. The Belgians won all five matches played so far, while the Scots won only six points which is two times fewer than the second-placed Russia to which they lost on Friday when Belgium routinely defeated San Marino. Belgium defeated Scotland by 3-0 in the first part of the qualification.
Game Scotland vs Belgium begins 09.09.2019 at 20:45 CET
The opening defeat by Kazakhstan was an indication that the qualifications could turn badly for Scotland. Later on the Scots won San Marino and Cyprus but when they faced stronger teams they lost twice. Defeat by Belgium of 3-0 was pretty much expected but they hoped to make a good result against Russia on Friday. It was probably the decisive match for the Scots and they started well, as they took a lead after McGinn scored. In the second half they lost steam and received two goals and lost, so the only thing that can return them into the race is to win Belgium. The team will certainly undergo some changes compared the previous match.
Probable lineups Scotland: Marshall – O'Donnell, Mulgrew, Cooper, Robertson – McGinn, McTominay – Snodgrass, McLean, Christie – McBurnie
Belgians are routinely going through these qualifications, and that was expected from this team. Tthey are the first in the FIFA rank list and winning all five matches played so far is not surprise. They received only one goal by Russia in the first round. Belgium didn’t win by sound results and it can be seen that they play as it is necessary. They won San Marino 4-0 on Friday, and it can be said that we expected a higher triumph against the weakest team in the group, but the Beligans scored the first goal only in the finish of the first half. E. Hazard couldn’t join the team because of injury and perhaps we will see some refreshments in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Belgium: Courtois – Alderweireld, Denayer, Vertonghen – Meunier, de Bruyne, Tielemans, Carrasco – Mertens, Batshuayi, R. Lukaku
Betting Pick: Scotland vs Belgium
Scotland must win or they are practically eliminated from the race for the European Championship. The Belgians can play relaxedly and they will play to score a goal more than their opponents, so the match could be an efficient one.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals
