Scotland vs England - World Cup Qualification Europe Preview and Odds

June 10, 2017 17:00pm - Hempden Park

World Cup Qualification - Group F

Scotland will try to keep their World Cup hopes alive by getting one over on their old rivals from south of the border on Sunday. Gordon Strachan`s men grabbed an important win at home to Slovenia in their last Group F game and are currently sat in fourth place just two points behind second-ranked Slovakia.

That win came courtesy of a late Chris Martin goal and moved them to within a point of the team they defeated. They will hoping that their decent home form continues this weekend. The Scots have lost just two of their last 13 matches on home soil, although one of those defeats did come against England.

Meanwhile, England are unsurprisingly the dominant force in Group F having won four and drawn one of their five games without conceding a goal. However, their total goal tally of eight from five matches is poor by their usual qualifying standards.

The last time they travelled to Scotland they ran out 3-1 winners thanks to two goals from Wayne Rooney and another from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Betting odds and tips

Scotland will try to keep things tight and could at least hang on to the break without falling behind. In fact, four of England`s last five away games have remained goalless in the first half.

As a result, the 0-0 half time score looks like a decent proposition at 6/4. While the Draw/England HT/FT wager also looks good value at 3/1.

Back the 0-0 Half Time Score at 6/4 and the Draw/England Half Time/Full Time at 3/1 with Bet365.
