IT'S now or never for Scotland in Vienna tonight with their World Cup 2022 hopes hanging in the balance.
Steve Clarke's side huffed and puffed to a 1-0 win over Moldova which kept things ticking along and a 5-2 thrashing of Austria by Israel on Saturday gives the Scots the chance to put some daylight between themselves and tonight's opponents if they can secure a win.
The sides drew 2-2 at Hampden back in March when the Scots came from behind twice to take a point but a win tonight could put them into second place in the group if top-of-the-group Denmark beat Israel in Copenhagen. A draw wouldn't be disasterous for Clarke's men and that's priced up at 5/2. A Scotland win is as big as 41/10 (SBK) while three points for Austria is 5/6.
Patriotic members of the Tartan might be best to take Scotland on the Double Chance market where you can get even money of a draw or Scotland at Bet365.
SlipsTips has rooted out a cards bet for the match as he expects a closely-fought match to unfold.
Norway are massive favourites at home to Gibraltar who'll need to contend with powerhouse Erling Braut Haaland. he Dortmund striker is 8/5 to open the scoring or 15/8 to bag a hat-trick. Haaland has scored nine in 14 for the national team and is on penalties so either of these appeal, although the first-scorer bet probably edges it.
Ronaldo is suspended for Portugal‘s trip to Azerbaijan which means they're slightly less appealing at 1/7 and best not to get drawn in to the handicap markets in this one.
Rumours abound that Stephen Kenny's number will be up if Ireland fail to get a result against Serbia in Dublin. The Irish scraped a 1-1 draw with Azerbaijan on Saturday and are well out of contention, five points behind Luxembourg in fourth place. Kenny doesn't have the same quality available to him that previous managers have had and it shows. Morale looks low and it could be good time to get on 21/20 (SBK) that Dragan Stojković's side will take all three points.
Fresh from a 13/2 winning acca on Sunday's qualifiers, Jamie Kennedy is back with a near 6/1 four-fold accumulator for Tuesday night, while Greg McLean is focusing on Group F's two matches for his Bet of the Day.
