England v Scotland Betting Preview & Tips

England host Scotland at Wembley in a World Cup qualifier on Friday night, as the hosts attempt to retain their spot at the top of the group.

England currently sit top of the group, having picked up seven points from a possible nine so far in their qualification campaign. Victories over Slovakia and Malta were followed by a goalless against Slovenia last time out.

The Three Lions have a very impressive recent record in World Cup qualifying, having lost just one of their last 25 games. On home soil, England are unbeaten in 19 World Cup qualifiers, with their last home defeat in qualifying for the World Cup coming way back in 2000 against Germany.

The Three Lions have won their last five World Cup qualifiers on home soil, keeping clean sheets in four of those victories. England’s recent record against neighbours Scotland is pretty impressive too, as they have recorded wins in the last five meetings against the visitors. The last time these two teams met came in a friendly in 2014, with England winning 3-1 at Celtic Park.

Scotland head into this clash on the back of just one win in their last five international outings. The visitors are fourth in the group, having taken four points from their three games so far. A victory would move them level on points with England in the table.

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan is under immense pressure following a poor string of results, including a 3-0 defeat in Slovakia last time out in qualifying. Strachan’s team have suffered defeats in three of their last five international outings, but two of those defeats were inflicted by France and Italy.

The only bright spot of the qualifying campaign so far was the 6-1 win in Malta. Recent history suggests the Scots will be heading to London in more hope than expectation for this clash.
