Scotland’s quest to make it to next winter’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar continues when they face the Faroe Islands on Tuesday evening.

Scott McTominay hit a stoppage-time winner against Israel on Saturday that kept the Scots on course for the World Cup qualifying play-offs. 

While Denmark have all but sealed automatic passage to Qatar, Scotland are in prime position to reach the World Cup qualification playoffs phase 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 Steve Clarke’s men four points clear of Israel with three games to play in the battle to finish runners-up to Denmark.

Denmark look home and hosed, having won all seven games thus far and they have yet to concede a goal, whilst scoring 26 themselves.

Scotland have only managed 12 goals from their seven games, but Clarke’s side have been stingy, conceding just seven and have a two-goal superior goal difference to Israel.

The Faroe Islands have been eliminated after winning just one and drawn one of their seven games.

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.

Scotland were comfortable 4-0 winners when these sides last met in Glasgow in March and they have won eight of the 10 previous meetings. Seven of their 10 previous clashes saw three goals or more scored. Scotland have won to nil on five of their last 10 meetings and Clarke’s side have won the last five meetings by two goals or more.

Scotland have now won three consecutive home World Cup qualifiers for the first time since winning all five leading up to the 1998 finals – and wins against the Faroes Islands and Moldova will see them on the plane for Qatar.

Verdict

Scotland are expected to have a tougher time in their rematch in Faroe but we are still backing them to emerge victorious.
