BRAZIL have never lost to Scotland in nine meetings – and bookies are pretty sure that record won't be broken on Sunday.

The Tartan Army are heading in their masses to London more in hope than expectation.

However, this Brazil side are nothing like the samba stars of old and will be without main men Robinho, Maicon, Pato, Nilmar and Kaka.

And boss Mano Menezes is under a little pressure after back-to-back defeats to Argentina and France. Menezes has named a solid side that includes Lucio, Lucas, Ramires and Elano with new sensation Neymar partnered up front by debut boy Leandro Damiao of Internacional.

It's still a talented side but one Scotland shouldn't fear especially as they've followed up a battling 3-2 defeat to world champions Spain with 3-0 wins against the Faroes and Northern Ireland.

Scotland are as big as 17-2 with while the South Americans are a best 2-5 with firms including Paddy Power and Ladbrokes.

There is no doubt Craig Levein's men can compete on their day and I reckon it will be a close call at the Emirates.

So Scotland on the double chance (not to lose) could be the call. That pays 12-5 at Coral.

The draw is 15-4 with boylesports and plus one goal Scotland are 15-8 with Ladbrokes and 3-4 plus two at boylesports.

Charlie Adam, who scored a brilliant free-kick for Blackpool last week, is 20-1 with Paddy Power to show the samba stars how to do it tomorrow.

To hit the target at any time in a Scotland win Adam is 16-1 with Hills while he is 11-2 with the same firm to net at any time. Adam is a best 18-1 at bet365 to bag the opener.

Hills are asking who will score the most free-kicks and go 1-3 Brazil, 7-1 Scotland and 3-1 tie. It’s a void bet if none are netted.

Surprisingly Scotland have only once trailed Brazil at half-time and five of the South Americans’ last seven matches have been level at the break.  Scotland are 3-1 with Hills to score first and a half-time draw pays 11-8.

Four times Brazil have beaten us by one goal and are 5-2 with Hills to do so again.

Muller scored the only goal when the sides met at Italia 90 – could it be Miller this time?

Kenny Miller is 90-1 with Hills to net in a 1-0 win and 10-3 to score at any time. The Bursaspor star is Scotland's best hope at 11-1 at bet365 to break the deadlock.

Neymar is Brazil’s most likely scorer and a biggest 5-1 at bet365.


Scotland plus two

(3-4, boylesports)
