Faroe Islands - Scotland

Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -1,5 Scotland
Odds: 1.79
Stake: 1

Match date: 12/10/2021

As part of the 8th round of group F of European qualifiers for 2022. World Cup in Qatar, Faroe Islands and Scotland will play today at 8.45 CET in Torshavn. The hosts are football dwarfs and have just four points, while Scotland lie second in group F, seven points behind leaders Denmark and four ahead of both Israel and Austria.

Not much should be said about Faroe Islands, although they have progress in recent years and managed to beat Moldova 2:1 in these qualifiers. Only Portugal have managed to put more than four goals against Faroe Islands since 2012. For a remote nation of just under 50,000 people Faroes have 5,000 registered players, 10% of the nation's population.

Minnows coming within a few minutes of drawing with Denmark last month, but lost only for a late red card and goal. The Faroes took the lead against Austria in March before losing 1:3 and have scored against Portugal and Spain. Draws with the Scots in 1999. and 2002. can provide a source of inspiration, but Tuesday's visitors have now scored 17 without reply against the Faroes, including a 4:0 win at Hampden in March.

Simun Edmundsson, now playing in Belgium's second tier, will be a threat in attack, and Helsingborgs midfielder Brandur Hendriksson Olsen as the heartbeat of home side.

Scotland was in the abyss against Israel three days ago, losing 1:2, but in the end of this match they managed to score two goals and win. Thrilling 3:2 victory at Hampden means the Scots are two more wins away from securing a place in World Cup play-offs. Wins in the Faroes and in November away to Moldova, who prop up the section without a win, will secure the runners-up spot.

Scottish national coach Steve Clarke, who will be without striker Che Adams through injury, says it was right for his side to celebrate in front of a packed Hampden on Saturday, as they had qualified for this summer's Euro finals in front of an empty stadium. But Clarke warns that the host should no means be underestimated, and many Scotland fans who remember the 2:2 draw in Toftir in 2002. would agree with him. But on the wings of euphoria after big win against Israel, the guests are just thinking how to get three points today.

There is a big difference in quality between these two rivals, and the Scots don't want to allow themselves to gamble everything they have gained so far with good results. This generation of theirs players is definitely one of the better ones in the last 20 years and should not allow any surprises tonight in Torshavn. That's why a victory with two differences it seems a good bet...
