San Marino vs Scotland Prediction & Betting tips
In group I of the European Championship qualification, Scotland hopes to be able to work on its self-confidence on Sunday evening when it visits the invalid San Marino. In the event of a point loss, the Scots should better choose another profession.
San Marino can rightly call itself the football dwarf of the football dwarfs. The Southern Europeans are at the very bottom of the FIFA world ranking and managed to get off the pitch only once in their entire history. That is now almost fifteen years ago, in a friendly international match against Liechtenstein (1-0). So if you are still looking for a new challenge on Football Manager, I challenge you to help the country as a national coach with a World Cup title. San Marino is certainly not without reason known as the worst football country in the world, so unless the new Lionel Messi is born in the dwarf state, we will not see La Serenissima at a major tournament for the time being.
Of course, it makes little sense to take a closer look at San Marino’s selection, as coach Franco Varrella only has firewood at his disposal. You can’t blame Varrella for not setting up any striker last week and having his team play in a 4-6-0 formation. Nevertheless, San Marino still had no chance of a visit to Cyprus with a 5-0 defeat.
Scotland also had a bad start to the European Championship qualification, as when visiting Kazakhstan the team coach Alex McLeish faced a 2-0 deficit after only ten minutes of play. After the tea, Kazakhstan striker Baktiyor Zainutdinov added some extra salt to the Scottish wounds by setting the final score to 3-0.
With that result, Scotland cut itself ugly, because with countries like Belgium and Russia in the pool, The Tartan Army could not afford a point loss. ‘This was really the only conceivable start, especially against a country that did not win a single match in the previous qualifying series. San Marino will now smell blood, “said goalie Craig Gordon, who has not been selected due to an injury. The last comment is of course a joke, but one with a serious undertone. The Scottish selection is very poor, with a lot of creativity and scoring ability. The entire selection together accounts for only nine international goals.
