Billy Stark will be in charge of Scotland as they head to Luxembourg for their first match since the dismissal of Craig Levein and the Under-21s boss is odds-on at 4/6 via Betfred to preside over a victory in the Stade Josy Barthel, where the hosts are Skybet’s 5/1 outsiders.
Luxembourg had managed a few decent results, including a draw in Northern Ireland, before they were soundly beaten twice in a double-header against Israel but the Scots should nevertheless register a morale-boosting success despite their recent poor form.
Bet365 make them 15/2 to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline and it’s 11/4 courtesy of Ladbrokes for Stark’s troops to nick it by a one-goal margin, however it’s in attack for the visitors where punters can cash-in.
Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes looks set to start for his country and having scored a hat-trick at the same venue last season for the Under-21s, he’ll be confident of finding the net, just as he did in his only other full international start, against Australia earlier this year.
The prolific front man is 5/1 (Ladbrokes) to break the deadlock and 6/4 courtesy of 888Sport to get on the scoresheet at any time.
Jordan Rhodes to score first – 5/1 (Ladbrokes)
