Euro 2016 Qualification- Gibraltar vs Scotland Betting Preview

Gibraltar are the smallest nation in the competition and have performed as expected with nine straight defeats but they will want to give it their all in this match and try to end on a high even if that means just getting their first home goal of the campaign which is a realistic possibility as they got one of their two goals away to Scotland in the reverse fixture.

Scotland were devastated on Thursday as Poland scored a late-equaliser to end their hopes of qualification to the finals. Results elsewhere went against them as Ireland unexpectedly beat Germany which now leaves Scotland six points a drift of both Ireland and Poland with just one game remaining.

There is a lot of talk revolving around Gordon Strachan at the moment and whether he should be the man to lead them into the qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. He will want to give people something think about in this match and will want to repeat what they did back in March against Gibraltar.

Gibraltar vs Scotland Head to Head Statistics

29/03/15 EUR Scotland vs Gibraltar 6 : 1

These sides have met just once throughout their history as they faced each other in the reverse fixture of this match back in March. Scotland triumphed as expected on that day and came out in the end as 6-1 winners after Fletcher got himself a hat-trick, Maloney managed to grab himself two from the penalty spot and Naismith made it six with one goal.

Gibraltar Recent Form

08/10/15 EUR Georgia vs Gibraltar 4 : 0
07/09/15 EUR Poland vs Gibraltar 8 : 1
04/09/15 EUR Gibraltar vs Ireland 0 : 4
13/06/15 EUR Gibraltar vs Germany 0 : 7
07/06/15 FRI Croatia vs Gibraltar 4 : 0

Gibraltar are in terrible form after losing all of their last five matches by four or more goals and scoring just one in the process. Gibraltar lost 4-0 to Georgia on Thursday and now face a Scotland side that have gained more points than Georgia in the qualification stage.

Scotland Recent Form

08/10/15 EUR Scotland vs Poland 2 : 2
07/09/15 EUR Scotland vs Germany 2 : 3
04/09/15 EUR Georgia vs Scotland 1 : 0
13/06/15 EUR Ireland vs Scotland 1 : 1
05/06/15 FRI Scotland vs Qatar 1 : 0

Scotland’s form is terrible in their own respects as they have managed to win just one of their last five matches and that came in a friendly against Qatar. They have since drew two and lost two of their most recent four matches including a disastrous loss away to Georgia which could well have been the game that defined their qualification campaign.

Gibraltar Team News:

Gibraltar are currently free from any injury concerns and they are expected to line-up with a similar outfit in the last game of the qualifying stage.

Scotland Team News:

As Scotland can now not qualify for the Euro’s, Strachan is expected to make a number of changes giving some of the younger players and fringe players am opportunity to show their talent which should see the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Graham Dorrans and Christophe Berra in contention to start.

Gibraltar vs Scotland Average Goals Per Game Statistics

There has been just one game between these two sides which doesn’t give us much to go off in this match but that game finished 6-1 to Scotland and I would expect another very comfortable win for Scotland in this one.

Gibraltar vs Scotland Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I am predicting what most other people are and that is a very comfortable win for Scotland in this one. They beat them 6-1 in the reverse fixture and they will want to go and do something similar in this one to end the campaign on a high. Gibraltar have lost by four or more goals in all but one of their nine games in the qualification stage which means that for Scotland to win by four or more in this game at evens is value for money and that is why my banker is exactly that.

For my saver, I have tried to find some more value but it is very difficult in a match like this. I think that Gibraltar may get their first home goal in this match as they managed to score against Scotland away from home and in this game, Scotland will have a weaker team so I was looking at bets such as both teams to score. But I think it is better value to go for goals in this match because even if Gibraltar don’t score then you have still got the chance of Scotland getting more goals than expected to fulfill your bet.
