Scotland vs Belgium − Match preview
Scotland currently occupy fourth place in Group I, having won two and lost three of their five qualifiers so far. Belgium top the group with 15 points from a possible 15, and Russia, with 12 points, are in second place.
With five games left to play, anything but a victory tonight would all-but kill off Scotland’s hopes for automatic qualification. However, they have the play-offs to fall back on, having won their Nations League group last year.
Steve Clarke’s side were a goal to the good in their last outing, but ended up losing 2-1 to Russia. Stephen O’Donnell’s second-half own goal proving to be the difference.
The last time Andy Robertson and co faced Belgium, they lost 3-0, with Romelu Lukaku grabbing a brace and Kevin De Bruyne adding the gloss in stoppage time. Scotland have a job on their hands doing any better this time around.
