Scotland vs Russia for the UEFA Euro qualifiers match on Friday at Hampden Park Stadium.
For this Friday we present the prediction of Scotland vs Russia. We will probably have a balanced game with a small advantage for the visiting team.
With this, we can imagine a range of betting possibilities that reflect the balance of the game. But, nothing that creates significant favouritism for any team.
In this case, the Scottish team won two matches this year and lost two more. However, it is worth mentioning the defeat to Kazakhstan by 3 × 0, a loss to an uncompetitive national team.
Besides, the team was totally dominated by the Belgian team in their last confrontation, thus suffered a defeat by 3 × 0.
At the same time, the game against Belgium showed the limitations of the attack and midfield of the team. In fact, there were only two shots on goal in the match against 11 from Belgium.
The team then won only two matches in their group. One against Cyprus and another against San Marino that are two very weak squads.
The Russian team already left behind the excitement of their excellent result in the World Cup in which they hosted. In this sense, failed to maintain this year the level of football presented in the competition.
Thus, their last important match was against the Belgian team where they lost by 3 × 1. However, in this match, the Russian side allowed only 5 shots on goal from Belgium; unfortunately, 3 of them turned into goals.
Thus, we can consider Russia, a defensive team with consistent ball possession. But not enough for big presentations.
As said, we will have a balanced match. Thus, the Russian defence can be a significant differential.
Scotland’s weak attack will scarcely succeed in overcoming this block. However, Russia hardly gets good counterattacks, meaning it is a rather slow team.
Indeed, after a goal from either team, the other must close to try to secure the score.
