Scotland’s opening loss to Kazakhstan was one of the worst in their history and one that will certainly be topped if they don’t get the result against San Marino. Form Labs cast their eye over the stand-out game of the weekend and don’t forget to head over to our FanBoosts section and check out our enhanced odds for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
McLeish Under Pressure
Scotland have now lost seven of 11 games under Alex McLeish as his tenure is already being questioned just 12 months in, with any feel-good factor from their successful UEFA Nations League campaign shattered in Kazakhstan on Thursday.
The 3-0 defeat saw some diabolical defending and little creative inspiration, with the hosts thoroughly deserving their victory.
Scotland must beat San Marino if they’re to avoid blowing their chances at qualification via the usual method (they have a shot through the play-offs courtesy of their Nations League success) but should have no difficulty with San Marino losing all 28 games since the start of 2015.
San Marino v Scotland Betting Tips
Even excluding the best sides they’ve faced over this period – England, Switzerland, Croatia, Germany and Italy – San Marino have still been battered and bruised and especially on the road with defeats by four goals or more away in Slovenia, N. Ireland, Azerbaijan, the Czech Republic, Belarus and most recently in Cyprus on Thursday. However, excluding those aforementioned top sides, the hosts have only lost by three goals or more in four of 10 fixtures in front of their own fans over this period, as only the Czech Republic and Norway were able to produce a win by a minimum of four goals. Up against a shaky Scottish side, we fancy their chances of at least keeping it to within three strikes.
