Resurgent Scots to sneak it at 21/5

Live on Sky Sports 1: Tues 20.00: Scotland (13/5, bet365) can cause another upset in a potentially close World Cup qualifier with Croatia.

Scotland’s final game of the World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign, against Croatia at Hampden Park, is effectively a dead rubber following their opponents’ defeat to Belgium on Friday – a result that guarantees the visitors will finish in second spot in Group A – but the hosts’ boss Gordon Strachan will nevertheless be keen to pick up a victory as the Scots look to build momentum ahead of the battle to reach Euro 2016.

In the reverse fixture, Scotland did significant damage to Croatia’s hopes of topping the pool, registering a shock 1-0 win in Zagreb yet on home soil they’re bet365′s 13/5 outsiders to repeat the feat while Igor Stimac’s troops are a 5/4 chance at Betfred.

Those odds do Scotland something of a disservice in the circumstances, with morale perhaps a touch low in the visitors’ camp and as the hosts have shown plenty of signs of progress under Strachan, they’re worth an interest here, especially as clean sheets have been hard to come by for Croatia of late.

Ladbrokes post an enticing 21/5 against Scotland nicking it by a one-goal margin, another 1-0 triumph for Strachan’s charges is 21/2 via BetVictor and bwin price in-form Leigh Griffiths at 8/1 to break the deadlock.
