Moldova vs Scotland Betting Tips

Scotland faces a crunch WC qualifying fixture as they take on Moldova at the Stadionul Zimbru knowing a win will secure a playoff spot for next year's finals in Qatar. 

Steve Clarke´s side comes into this match also knowing a draw could be good enough should Israel fail to win later on Friday evening however the Scots will be desperate to get the job done on their own terms against the groups bottom-ranked nation.

Indeed, with just 1 point taken from 9 matches, it would be a disaster for Scotland to fail to take all 3 points against minnows Moldova but members of the Tartan Army will be all too aware of past history which tells us to take nothing for granted as far as the Scottish national team is concerned.

Still, this is a much-improved Scottish side under Steve Clarke with the boys in blue winning each of their last four qualifying matches with clean sheets in three of those wins, including away in Austria. The Scots have now lost just 1 of their last 13 WC and EC qualifying fixtures since a heavy 4:0 defeat in Russia back in 2019.

However, while the Scots have improved, Moldova also seems to be picking up their form and while the results have not been forthcoming, the home side is a far more organised side under Italian Roberto Bordin. Yet, with 8 defeats in their last 9, it's still hard to see Moldova taking anything here, even if the Scots do have past when it comes to failing against the continent´s so-called lesser lights.

Scotland edged to a nervy 1:0 win when these sides met at Hampden earlier this year and ultimately, given what's at stake for the away side, a similar outcome has to be likely with the Scots rarely doing things the easy way while the absence of the talismanic Lyndon Dykes could see goals in short supply for the visitors. 

Of course, should the Scots fail to win, Israel would still need a win in Austria to give themselves a chance of stealing into second place but Clarke´s side will be fully determined to avoid the danger of needing something from their last fixture against the runaway group leaders Denmark. 

As such, we expect a really tense night for Scotland and a low-scoring contest is anticipated. Under 2.5 goals pays at a generous 2.1 odds at the time of writing while under 0.5 first-half goals also looks a good option at even tastier 3.25 odds.

Ultimately, an away win is still likely but at odds of 1.18, there's little value on offer in backing the Scots victory alone although Scotland to win to nil also offers a decent alternative at 2.1 odds.

Final score 0:1

Moldova Team News

Moldova have won just 3 of their previous 33 home WC qualifying matches and just 1 of their last 20. In this campaign, they have lost 3 and drawn 1 of their 4 home matches with Denmark, Israel and Austria all leaving with 3 points. 

Goals have been in short supply but 22-year-old forward Ion Nicolăescu has scored twice in his last eight appearances and the DAC forward will likely get the nod to start on the home side's attack.

Scotland Team News

Grant Hanley has been ruled out through injury and he joins suspended pair Christie and Dykes on the sidelines for the Scots. However, both Christie and Dykes will return for Scotland's final match against Denmark.

Liam Cooper could come in to replace Hanley at the heart of the defence while Kevin Nisbet and Ryan Fraser could be deployed in attacking positions alongside Southampton striker Adams.

Stoke striker Jacob Brown has been given his first call up to provide cover for the absent Dykes but he will likely have to make do with a place on the Scots bench.
