Placed 42nd according to Fifa’s world rankings, Scotland comes into this match as the overwhelming favorite at odds of 1.25 to win their tournament opener. The draw result is currently returning 5.5 on most bookmakers’ odds, while a win for the 110th-ranked visitors occupies the outside betting option priced at a whopping 13.0 and better. With 10 goals in their last five matches in all competitions, Scotland will be looking to secure a healthy goal advantage in this match, making the handicap market look fairly attractive at odds of 1.75 on the -1 option for the hosts. For a chance to double your wager, the result/ total goals option could be the way to go for Scotland to win and over 2.5 goals, which will return 2.1 on your wager.

Scotland - Cyprus: Form Analysis

Neither of these sides qualified for the World Cup, meaning that their last competitive matches came in the UEFA Nations League group stages in September last year. Scotland impressed in that tournament, topping their group with 13 points in six matches, including four wins, one draw, and one loss. They are unbeaten in their last four competitive matches, though they did lose the one friendly match they played in November against Turkey 1-0. In contrast, Cyprus will be hoping to put their Nations League disappointment behind them, where they finished bottom of League C Group 2, registering just one win in their six matches, along with two draws and three losses. The visitors played two friendlies in November, losing the first 2-0 to Bulgaria but then put on a good display against Israel to win the second match 3-2.

Scotland & Cyprus Squad Analysis

The big talking point in terms of team news for the hosts ahead of this tournament was around who would replace Craig Gordon in goal after the Hearts goalie suffered a double leg break which should keep him on the sidelines for a while. The player selected is none other than Angus Gunn, who switches allegiance from England and is now expected to take up the mantle for the foreseeable future. Lyndon Dykes will return to the squad after recovering from an illness at the expense of Kevin Nisbet, while Lawrence Shankland will miss out on this double-header through injury. Cyprus did have injury concerns over Ioakeim Toumbas and Stelios Andreou; however, both players have been spotted training with the squad which should give the visitors a full contingent to choose from. 

Scotland - Cyprus Key Points

  1. Scotland has scored two or more goals in seven of their last 10 competitive internationals at home
  2. Scotland is unbeaten in their last four competitive matches
  3. Scotland has won seven of their last 10 competitive matches
