A full Hampden Park will be expecting a cracker tonight as the Tartan Army hope to channel the spirit of 1984 and a repeat of Scotland's 3-1 win over Spain back then.

That victory helped Scotland on their way to the 1986 World Cup in Mexico and a win tonight would be a massive boost to Steve Clarke's chances of guiding the nation to another major tournament.

There's no doubt that Clarke has Scotland heading in the right direction and he'd love to take a big scalp. He's not had too many opportunities in his near 4-year spell in charge and arguably his best result against one of the big guns was the 0-0 draw at Wembley at Euro 2020.

Other than that his record against teams currently in the Top 20 Rankings is unspectacular. A 2-0 win over Denmark is the only win in seven, and by then the Danes had comfortably qualified. They also went toe-to-toe in a friendly with the Dutch, conceding a late goal in a 2-2 draw.

But defeat to Croatia at Hampden in Euro 2020, two losses to Belgium by an aggregate of 7-0 and a 2-0 defeat in Copenhagen suggests there's still gap to be closed by Clarke's squad.

But Clarke relishes the kind of challenge tonight's game presents. His Kilmarnock side often stifled Celtic and Rangers during his tenure at Rugby Park. Is it too late too install an artificial pitch at Hampden?

Stopping Spain will be Clarke's primary objective and if he can get to the half hour mark without conceding his side will have something to build on. That pays 5/6 at Bet365.

The Spanish don't tend to score too many, especially away from home. You have to go back to a 4-1 win in the Faroe Islands in 2019 for the last time they scored more than two in a competitive away (not neutral) match. Scotland don't have too many goalscorers in their ranks either, especially since they'll be minus Che Adams. With all that in mind Under 2.5 goals appeals at 4/5.

In the same group, Norway face what could be a tricky trip to Georgia. Former Bayern Munich full-back Willy Sagnol was appointed Georgian head coach in 2021 and after a slow start appears to have turned things around. They lost just once in 2022, a 3-0 friendly defeat to Morocco, their only loss in 13.

Admittedly they've been playing teams of a lower standard than Norway but the stand-out result in Sagnol's time is a 2-0 win at home to Sweden. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia was the double-scorer that night and the Napoli winger has lit-up Serie A this season, averaging almost a goal every two games.

The absence of Erling Haaland further dents Norway's chances. The Manchester City striker has scored six of Norway's last seven competitive goals so they'll need to find goals from somewhere else if they're to pick up their first three points of the group.

At 13/5 Gerogia could be worth an interest and the 6/4 in the Draw No Bet market is a good option.

For a straightforward treble tonight look to Kosovo, Romania and Switzerland all to win at 11/10.

    Grant Hanley to pick up a card tonight, I’ve seen milk turn quicker than the big man and he won’t like the faster Spanish players who should be spending most of the game in the Scotland half

    Hanley to be carded 14/5

    • SmokeyJoe 8 months ago

      Pedro Porro could be a card nomination from the Spanish side,the Spurs right back will be up against arguably Scotland’s best attacking outlet in Tierney and Robertson which could bring about a booking. He collected 4 yellows in 12 for Sporting Lisbon before moving to England

      Porro to be carded 3/1

    • Deano86 8 months ago

      Porro 11/2 for a booking with betfair 👍

    Scotland v Spain Btts

    Betfair. 13/10

  14. RFC-JazzaJN 8 months ago

    Mauritania tonight in the late African Cup of Nations qualifier. On a nice unbeaten run at home and playing against a DR Congo team who travel like a dodgy curry. DR Congo turned them over 3-1 in Kinshasa last week but Mauritania were down to 10 men and still played quite well.

    8/5 with Ladbrokes and Boylesports for a home win.

    Haiti v Bermuda
    CONCACAF Nations League
    Bermuda to score 5-4 SKYBET ⚽

    Haiti already promoted to league 1 and priced to hammer Bermuda who themselves could need a positive result here or they would be hoping monserratt don’t beat Guyana later or Bermuda will be relegated if they lose to Haiti and monserratt beat guyana

    4 previous head to heads to in Haiti been
    2-1 3-1 2-1 4-1 though 2 of them were so long ago I had hair then.
    Hopefully Bermuda can get a consolation today.
    Prediction 4-1

    Scotts shocked Spain!
    International break is good to have a break in betting!
    Shocks are just too many!

  19. maccathered 8 months ago

    Romania v Belarus
    Over 2.5 goals at 1/1 WON
    Over 3.5 goals lost
    Had a nice touch on Mactominay to score 2+ at 20/1 boosted after his first goal.

    Andy Robertson played a blinder, big game experience counted for a lot tonight, although Mactominay scored twice Robertson man of the match.
    well done all winners and Scotland of course.

    • foxwalker 8 months ago

      Had Scotland to win
      Massive at 5/1 n that was before I seen the Spanish lineup 😳
      I saw someone backed McTominay for 2 goals, £20 on at 300/1 👏👏👏
      Kosovo done me hard style by not winning so a loss but I’ll take that everytime if Scotland keep playing like that 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
