The 2022 World Cup is now only a few months away and for Scotland, it all comes down to this as they prepare for the visit of Ukraine this evening. At stake is a place in the play-off final on Sunday against Wales and the enormity of the task won’t be lost on Scotland coach Steve Clarke. The intense atmosphere inside Hampden Park will also be pretty emotional given the current political circumstances and the visitors will be looking to silence the home crowd.
Our belief is that this will prove to be a closely-fought affair and neither side will be willing to give away any early chances as they attempt to suss each other out in the early stages of the match. Indeed the likelihood is that the first half will be somewhat cagey throughout and on that basis, the Evens on offer for the game to be all-square at half-time looks tempting. Both Scotland and Ukraine will be eager to avoid conceding early on and given what is at stake here, we believe that the pivotal moments of this clash will occur in the second half.
In all honesty, we don’t envisage either side edging this one and we like the odds on this heading into extra time. Many recent games with much at stake have been closely fought and needed extra-time or even penalties to determine the outcome and the odds of 11/2 for tonight’s match to last 120 minutes certainly holds plenty of appeal.
The home side haven’t lost in their last eight outings but on the other side of the coin the visitors are unbeaten in their last ten. The likelihood is that they will cancel each other out at Hampden Park this evening and as such, extra time looks very much on the cards here.
