Scotland hosts Belgium
Scotland hosts Belgium in a very interesting fixture from Group I of the European qualifiers at the Hampden Park in Glasgow. Allow us to take a look at this game in our sure win prediction today.
Scotland are in a very difficult situation now, regarding their chances of reaching the next European Championship. Right now the Brits are fourth in the group with 6 points won, being on 6 points behind the second team in the standings Russia.
What really complicated Scotland’s situation is their home defeat against Russia few days ago. Steve Clarke’s team hosted Sbornaya in Glasgow with the idea that a win would increase their chances of qualification big time.
Everything started very well for Scotland, because Aston Villa’s John McGinn opened the score for the hosts after just ten minutes of playing. Five minutes before the halftime break Artem Dzyuba equalised for Russia, while after an hour of playing Sbornaya secured the win with an own goal from Stephen O’Donnell.
Meanwhile Belgum continue to dominate in this group, just as it was expected. Few days ago the Red Devils secured their fifth win from five games played so far in the group. They have three points advantage in front of the second Russia at the top.
Few days ago Belgium visited the underdog San Marino and it was pretty clear that they are going to win. Roberto Martinez’ boys did their job and won the game with 4-0. Michy Batshuayi opened the score for the visitors from a penalty kick, while after the halftime break Dries Mertens, Nacer Chadli and Batshuayi again scored for the Belgian side.
In our sure win prediction today we believe that it’s going to be a pretty great game between Scotland and Belgium on Monday. Against San Marino Roberto Martinez gave a break to some of his key players, so let’s see how the Red Devils will approach this game on Brittish soil.
