Scotland are coming off a comfortable 3:0 win against Ukraine; in a match where they dominated every aspect, registering 24 total shots.
Steve Clarke’s men have fared well in this tournament so far; they have won back-to-back games, with three wins in four group games.
It’s worth noting that Scotland are leading the standings ahead of this match-up, as they beat Ukraine for the top spot in their previous match.
With that in mind, Steve Clarke’s men will hope to keep their top spot after this match.
Unlike Scotland, the Republic of Ireland have not enjoyed their best run of form in recent months; they’ve won just one of their last four games, with a draw and two losses.
To be fair, Stephen Kenny’s men have a win and a draw in their last two matches.
As it stands, the Republic of Ireland are third on the four-team group table; they are five points behind tonight’s opponents, with four points from four group games.
As Stephen Kenny’s men make the trip to Hampden Park, it’ll be interesting to see if they can get anything against an in-form Scotland side.
Looking at both teams’ recent form, Scotland should be the ideal choice here; however, it gets a bit tricky.
Scotland have three wins and a loss in four group games; while that in itself is a good record, their only loss in this tournament came at the hands of Ireland.
In the same vein, the Republic of Ireland have just one win in four group games, but that win came against Scotland.
On that note, it’s best to tread carefully when backing a winner in this match.
It’s important to note that Scotland have been by far the highest-scoring team in the group.
To put it into perspective, there have been 20 goals scored in this group, and nine of those were from Scotland.
As a result of their high-scoring nature, Scotland’s matches tend to be on the high-scoring side; as five of their last six games went over the 2.5 goal line, including their last three.
Considering the reverse fixture of this clash saw at least three goals scored, we are going with the over 2.5 goals option, which is priced at 6/4 odds.
