This bet won in 2 out of 4 most recent head-to-head matches
3 out of 4 most recent head-to-head matches ended as draws
In our opinion, we will see a match of even opponents and the outcome may be decided by one single mistake. Scottish team is playing defensively, while visitors are aggressive on the offense, but it affects their defensive performance. We are expecting a number of goal opportunities from both teams.
Our prediction - both teams to score
None of four most recent head-to-head matches ended with a peaceful result, but we are expecting a draw today. Both opponents are extremely motivated for the match, but they are even on class. We think that no one will be able to record a victory, but both teams will keep the chance to qualify for the World Cup.
Our second bet is on a draw
