Preview
Belgium and Scotland meet at Stade Roi Baudouin, in a match for this stage of the EC Qualification (Qualifying Round). The only recent head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 07‑09‑2018, and ended in a (0‑4) win by Belgium.

Analysis of Belgium

The home team is currently in the 1st position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against Cyprus by (0‑2). In the last round, they have won a home match against Kazakhstan by (3‑0). In the last 10 home matches Belgium has won 9 and tied 1. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 15 of the last 17 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 12 out of 17 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 13 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 8 of those 13 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 11 of them. there are 2 periods that stand out in the last 17 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 4 of their 11 goals between minutes (16'‑30') and 4 of their 11 goals between (46'‑60').

The Belgian national team arrive for this match with a 3-0 home victory against Kazakhstan, registering the third successive triumph in this qualifying round: the team's goals were signed by Dries Mertens, Castagne and Lukaku. For playing against an opponent of poor technical and tactical quality, coach Roberto Martínez should opt for a very bold strategy, looking for Scotland's defensive flaws to apply their attacks. At the individual level we highlight the winger Eden Hazard, recently hired by Real Madrid, player who scored 3 goals in this competition. The whole squad is available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Courtois, T. Alderweireld, T. Meunier, J. Vertonghen, V. Kompany, Y. Tielemans, K. De Bruyne, A. Witsel, R. Lukaku, E. Hazard, T. Hazard.

Analysis of Scotland

The away team is currently in the 3rd position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against San Marino by (0‑2). In the last round, they have won a home match against Cyprus by (2‑1). In the last 9 away matches Scotland has won 4, tied 1 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

The Scottish national team arrive for this match with a 2-1 victory against Cyprus, registering the second triumph in this competition: Olivier Burke and Robertson scored the team's goals. In this away game, coach Steve Clarke should maintain his usual 4-2-3-1, with Eamonn Brophy being the team's most offensive reference. On the other hand, left-winger Ryan Fraser is one of the great highlights of this team, being a very fast and strong player in the defense-attack transition. For this game the manager can count on all his players.

Confirmed Lineup: D. Marshall, S. O'Donnell, S. McKenna, C. Mulgrew, G. Taylor, S. McTominay, C. McGregor, S. Armstrong, O. Burke, K. Mclean, J. Russell.

Betting suggestion:

This game puts in the field two national teams which go through different moments of their history, that is to say, it is visible that the hosts present superior quality. In this way, Belgium will be expected to dominate part of the game, creating the best chances to score goals. Taking into account these factors, risking in favor of the Belgians' triumph at the end of the first 45' is a good option.
