Scotland vs Russia prediction comes ahead of the 5th round of European Championship Qualifications for group I. The match will take place at Hampden Park in Glasgow. An interesting game is upon us because both teams are looking to secure their place in the Euro 2020 Championship. Since we are in for a match that is without a clear favourite, be sure to read my match preview to get the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this fixture.

Scotland vs Russia Betting Tips

Scotland had a sloppy start to their qualifying campaign for the next year's Championship, as they were beaten by Kazahstan with 3-0. In the next two matches, they exhilarated their fans, commonly known as The Tartan Army, with the wins over San Marino (0-2) and Cyprus (2-1). However, after the winning streak, they recorded a 3-0 loss against Belgium as visitors. So all this puts Scotland in a very tough position, they are known to record good results when they play at home, but they are clashing with the currently second-placed Russia who has proved to be a tough opponent, and they will give all they can to score at least one goal to please the cheering crowd.

On the other hand, Russia has had quite impressive results in this competition so far. They seem to be on fire, as they won to nil 3 games in a row. In all those amazing victories we saw them score 14 goals, and the most notable was the win over San Marino, where Russia as the host netted 9 goals. The only defeat they suffered was from the currently first placed Belgium with 3-1. Since Russia managed to score in all of those matches, I'm expecting to see goals on both sides. Even though they will try their best to add another victory to their winning streak, fighting against Scotland at their home ground is never an easy task.

Scotland Latest Team News

Scotland's players certainly can't wait to show off their skills in front of their fans, but two of their teammates, Grant Hanley and Liam Palmer will have to support them from their living rooms, as they are out with injuries. Palmer might even be ready for the return, but their coach Steve Clarke has already prepared the substitutes, David Bates and Mikey Devlin. On their side, James Forrest is the player to watch.

Russia Latest Team News

All of Stanislav Cherchesov's men are fit and ready for Friday's match. The coach can surely count on their eagerness to continue the steak of great results. I'm excited to see both of their top scorers, Artem Dzyuba and Denis Cheryshev. Their captain Dzyuba has scored five goals in his last 3 matches, so I'm expecting him to net again.

Scotland vs Russia Correct Score Prediction

These two teams clashed just twice before, back in the mid 90ies, and both of those matches ended in a draw. One was with the result 1-1 and the other 0-0. And now even though Scotland will have the home ground advantage working for them, and they will bring their A-game in order to get back to playing a major tournament after a 22-year absence, it will be very hard for them to outscore their opponents, since Russia has proved to be quite a tough nut to crack. All the facts, statistics and current form and results point out that a drawn game is the most likely scenario here.
