Scotland desperately need to pick up maximum points when hosting Moldova to get back in the race for a top-two finish in World Cup qualifying Group F.
Steve Clarke’s side are fourth in the table with five points from four games but now face the basement dwellers at Hampden Park.
We’re happy to take 7/10 for a home win to nil as our first Scotland vs Moldova prediction.
A Look At Scotland’s Betting Odds
Scotland can be forgiven for Wednesday’s 2-0 loss to runaway pool leaders Denmark, who made it four straight wins so far in Copenhagen.
Back in March, the Scots had respectable draws with Austria and Israel before brushing aside Faroe Islands 4-0.
Clarke’s men are still well in the mix for second place alongside Israel and Austria but getting back to winning ways this weekend is essential.
Captain Andy Robertson commented: “I have been involved in squads that have not picked up points when we maybe should.
“We will have our crowd back at Hampden and I hope we have a really good turnout because the Danish were fantastic.
“The fans got right behind their team and the players reacted. Hopefully, we can replicate that on Saturday.
“We have to recover quickly, try to put in a good performance and get the three points and then we will turn to Austria.”
The hosts do have some injury and illness issues but 6/1 for a 3-0 scoreline appeals from the Scotland vs Moldova odds.
A Look At Moldova’s Betting Odds
Moldova are as low down as 175 in the FIFA rankings, nestled in between Indonesia and St Lucia.
They kicked off their Group F campaign with a 1-1 home draw versus fellow minnows Faroe Islands and have since suffered a trio of defeats.
Roberto Bordin’s side were crushed 8-0 by Denmark, lost 4-0 at home to Israel and went down 2-0 to Austria in Chisinau this week.
A 1-0 friendly win over Azerbaijan in June warrants some respect but the visitors have drawn a blank up front in nine of their last 12 fixtures.
Conceding late goals has been a big problem this year and 5/4 they are outscored between 75:01 minutes and full-time is added to our Scotland vs Moldova betting tips.
