Live on Skysports 2 & BBC2: Tues 19.05 & 19.45: Spain are just 2/11 with to beat Scotland in their Euro 2012 qualifier.
Scotland’s victory in Liechtenstein means that they are now in second place in Group I with just one match to play but as that match is away to World and European champions Spain and Craig Levein’s side have Czech Republic breathing down their necks in third, a play-off place is far from guaranteed for the Scots, who are now 6/1 with William Hill to qualify for Euro 2012.
Inevitably, Spain are strong favourites for the points at 2/11 with while Scotland are 16/1 (Stan James) to cause what would be a huge upset, despite the fact that the hosts have nothing to play for.
A point, priced by Skybet at 13/2, is unlikely to be enough for Levein’s charges given that the Czechs are odds-on at 8/13 with Ladbrokes to collect a maximum haul in Lithuania but sadly for the Tartan Army, even a draw seems beyond them in Alicante.
In reality, a relatively comfortable Spanish triumph is on the cards and Vicente del Bosque’s charges can be backed at 11/8 courtesy of Coral in the handicaps, where they start a couple of goals in arrears.
Totesport chalk 6/1 against a 3-0 Spain victory, Betfred make the home side 8/11 to prevail ‘to nil’ and with del Bosque set to shuffle his pack, powerful striker Fernando Llorente could be given a chance to shine; he’s 4/1 with Boylesports to break the deadlock.
In Sofia, a much-improved Wales look overpriced at 3/1 with bet365 to follow up their victory over Switzerland by beating a decidedly ordinary Bulgaria team. Gary Speed’s men also appeal at 2/1 in Ladbrokes’ ‘Draw No Bet’ market and Coral quote Craig Bellamy at at a tempting 8/1 to open the scoring.
