Scotland v San Marino Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th October 2019

Huge win for the Scots in Glasgow

Scotland v San Marino Betting Tips – UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier, 13th October 17.00pm

Even though Scotland’s chances of direct qualification to UEFA Euro 2020 are over, Steve Clarke’s men will be looking for a big victory when minnows San Marino visit Hampden Park on Sunday. Belgium are already through, with Russia looking likely to join them in the European Championship finals. The Scots are currently in fifth place in Group I, while San Marino are rock bottom with zero points to their name. This should be a routine win for Scotland in Glasgow.

Scotland News and Form – Big margin of victory for the Scots?

Scotland have had another miserable qualifying campaign. After seven Group I matches, the Scots have won two and lost five. They have scored just five times and shipped a staggering 17 along the way.

On Thursday night, Scotland crashed to a 4-0 defeat to Russia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, with Artem Dzyuba helping himself to a brace. That was Scotland’s second successive 4-0 loss, having been beaten by Belgium by the same scoreline in Glasgow last month. Clarke’s side have now lost four in a row.

Still, it’s not all doom and gloom, as Scotland can still qualify for Euro 2020 through the play-off route. Before thinking about the play-offs, though, Clarke’s boys have three more qualifiers to get out of the way, starting with Sunday’s clash with San Marino at Hampden Park.

San Marino News and Form – Minnows to crash to another heavy defeat?

San Marino are the currently ranked 210th in the FIFA World Rankings, and their performances and results in qualifying tell you exactly why. La Serenissima have lost all seven of their European Championship qualifiers so far, scoring none and conceding 37 in the process.

In Brussels on Thursday, Franco Varrella’s men were thumped by Belgium. Roberto Martinez’s troops ran riot at the King Baudouin Stadium, with eight different scorers getting on the scoresheet in an emphatic 9-0 win for the Belgians. San Marino also lost 9-0 to Russia in Saransk back in June.

San Marino were always just making up the numbers in Group I, but they would love to get a goal at the very least from their last three games. After playing Scotland in Glasgow this weekend, Varrella’s side end their campaign with a home matches against Kazakhstan and Russia.

Scotland v San Marino Predictions

Scotland win: San Marino’s last European qualifying goal came way back in September 2015, when they lost 2-1 in Lithuania. The Scots only managed to score two goals when the pair met in Serravalle in the reverse matchup, but Scotland will be looking for a much bigger margin of victory in Glasgow. The home team are priced at 10/11 to win -5 on Sunday.

James Forrest has scored seven times for Celtic in all competitions this season. Meanwhile, the winger netted five goals for his country in two UEFA Nations League fixtures back in November last year. You can get the Celtic man at the decent price of 3/1 to open the scoring against San Marino.
