Scotland News and Form – Can Scotland keep qualification hopes alive?

It’s pretty much win or bust here for Scotland. Despite taking an early lead at home against Russia on Friday, Scotland ended up losing 2-1. They just didn’t build on their positive start and indeed the longer the game went on the worse they got. Scotland gifted Russia their two goals and the home side were completely overrun in the second half.

So that is a six-point tally that Scotland are stuck on in the group. That leaves them six points behind second-placed Russia, so the task ahead is very difficult. It will probably be too much ground for Scotland to make up. Can they at least get competitive and pull off a shock win against Belgium at Hampden Park? Scotland have lost their last two qualification games, the first of those being a 3-0 defeat in Belgium.

From their five qualification games played Scotland have managed just the one clean sheet. This campaign started on a sour note, a 3-0 loss in Kazatkathan. Scotland are W3 L4 in their last seven home games (both competitive and friendly). In five of those seven games, the Scots gave up at least two goals. In their last four European Championship home games, Scotland are W1 D1 L2. Both teams have scored each of Scotland’s last five home qualifiers.

Belgium News and Form – Will Belgium coast to a win in Scotland?

It has been pretty easy going for Belgium in this qualification group. It has been five wins from five for the Red Devils so far. The Belgians have produced at least two goals in each of those games as well. The goal-scoring power that they have is likely to cause some problems for Scotland. Belgium average exactly three goals per game in Group I. They have conceded only one goal so far. It was a 4-0 win over San Marino that they got on Friday.

Away from home in European Championship qualifiers, Belgium have won their last four on the bounce. It has been just the one defeat in their last seven away qualifiers, which was at Wales back in 2015. Belgium made a trip to Hampden Park just back in September and picked up a 4-0 win in an international friendly. They have three players, Michy Batshuayi, Romelu Lukakua and Eden Hazard as joint top scorers in this group with three each.

Scotland v Belgium Predictions

Belgium to win: The Red Devils can go and raid Hampden Park. They have scored seven unanswered goals against Scotland in their last two meetings. Because of that and how little composure and quality the Scots showed against Russia, we are going to predict a Belgium to win to nil outcome.
