There’s no lack of jokes for Scotland’s usual lack of goals. Since last summer, however, Scotland have scored in all six matches they’ve played, including in a 3-1 loss to world and European champions Spain in Alicante.
Craig Levein’s side should be expected to find the back of the net at some point as they travel to Slovenia for a midweek friendly and are priced at 1/2 to do so.
Slovenia, on the other hand, scored just four goals in Euro 2012 qualifying, when you discount the seven that they scored against the Faroe Islands.
With that in mind, a fifth friendly win out of seven for Scotland looks on the cards at tempting odds of 27/10, while the draw is at 21/10 and a bet on a Scottish clean sheet can be found at odds of 5/2.
Scotland have played in Slovenia just once, winning 3-0 in 2005. The odds on a repeat of that scoreline are 40/1 and with attacking players such as Carling Cup final penalty villains Kenny Miller and Charlie Adam both expected to play some part, three goals looks achievable.
New customers joining bwin.com who use their free £25 bet on a 3-0 away win would win a huge £1,025 if the Scots do indeed fly home 3-0 winners.
Slovenia’s more recent form has been fairly impressive, though. They narrowly lost to a strong USA outfit in a November friendly and the last two matches of their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign saw them defeat Serbia 1-0 after losing just 1-0 to Italy in the Azzurri’s back garden.
With that in mind, Slovenia will surely have their backers at 11/10 to pick up a win against a young Scotland team missing captain Darren Fletcher – but the visitors should at least grab a consolation goal if that happens.
