Faroe Islands v Scotland betting tips: Scots in strong position
Preview and odds for Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier
Scotland’s quest to make it to next winter’s World Cup in Qatar continues when they face the Faroe Islands, so we look at the odds to find some Faroe Islands v Scotland betting tips.
Scott McTominay hit a stoppage-time winner against Israel on Saturday that kept Scotland on course for the World Cup qualifying play-offs.
Tuesday’s match, which takes place at Tórshavn, is live on Sky Sports and kicks off at 7.45pm.
Faroe Islands v Scotland match odds
While Denmark have all but sealed automatic passage to Qatar, Scotland are in prime position to reach the play-offs following their stunning win over Israel.
Twice behind to goals from Eran Zahavi and Munas Dabbur, Steve Clarke’s side battled back to win with goals from John McGinn, Lyndon Dykes and a dramatic winner from Manchester United midfielder McTominay.
Victory moves the Scots four points clear of Israel with three games to play in the battle to finish runners-up to Denmark.
Scotland, who are 3/10 to win, have only managed 12 goals from their seven games, but Clarke’s side have been stingy, conceding just seven and they have a two-goal superior goal difference to Israel.
The Faroe Islands have won one and drawn one of their seven games and are 11/1 to win.
They went down 2-0 at home to Austria on Saturday but Denmark struggled to a 1-0 win when they went to the Faroes, so it won’t be easy for Scotland.
The hosts have drawn twice at home in four previous meetings and the draw is available at odds of 4/1.
