Goodwillie For Good Debut

Live on Skysports 1: Tue 20.00: Scotland are just 1/8 (Ladbrokes) to beat the Faroe Islands in a friendly to take place at Pittodrie.

The fact that nine players have already withdrawn from the Scotland squad says everything about how much importance is being placed on the friendly clash with Faroe Islands at Pittodrie and given the hosts’ absentees, there’s little in Ladbrokes home win quote of 1/8 to get excited about, especially as the visitors’ drew with Northern Ireland last time out.

Craig Levein’s men have to be considered favourites of course and they’ll be keen to return to winning ways to build up some confidence following back-to-back Euro 2012 qualifying defeats, however, it’s difficult to predict just how comfortable a success it will be.

In a potentially uninspiring affair, it’s tempting to suggest the Scots will prevail by a solitary goal, a result 888Sport quote at 10/3, but it might be a shrewd move to focus on individual players and it’s a couple of newcomers that stand out.

Firstly, Dundee United marksman David Goodwillie has seven league goals to his name this season and is 11/10 (bet365) to open his international account on his debut for his country while Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan is starting to make a name for himself and can be backed at 23/10 with Paddy Power to mark his first cap with a goal.

Nevertheless, it’s a contest that could produce fewer than 2.5 goals (11/8, William Hill).

Recommended Bets:
David Goodwillie to score at any time – 11/10 (bet365)

    Scotland are dross, look at the injuries, nobody cares about this game, unders probably a good bet

  2. Hutcho says:

    I concur, can’t see Scotland scoring three, Faroes probably won’t score – 1-0 or 2-0 home win for me.

    Unless you just want to have a look at some newbies, these matches are pointless, all that happens is half the squad sack it off with ‘injuries’ and you know they’ll be fit for the weekend.
