Scotland and Wales face-off at Hampden Park on Friday evening in search of three points to keep their feint hopes of qualifying for next summer’s World Cup alive.
The two nations met in Cardiff last October with Wales coming out on top with a 2-1 win thanks to two late Gareth Bale goals. The result has left Scotland bottom of Group A with Wales just a point above them, so nothing less than a victory will do for either side as they look to close the gap on Belgium and Croatia at the top of their group.
After losing in their first meeting, Scotland, under the tutelage of Gordon Strachan for the first time in a competitive game, will hope to live up to their favourites tag at 39/50. Wales though, with the in-form Bale in their side will be confident of another three points at 7/2 and both will want to avoid the draw at 5/2.
If you aren’t sure where to place your money then take a look at these five less well known stats.
1: The number of players in the current Scotland squad who have scored in this qualifying tournament – Kenny Miller. The only other player to score is West Brom’s James Morrison who misses out on this match through injury. Miller is fourth favourite to strike at 17/10.
2: The number of goals Scotland have managed in their four qualifying matches, both of which have come in the first-half. Bwin is offering 9/25 on the Scots failing to score in both halves and 9/4 on them finding the net more often in the first 45 minutes.
7: The number of times in the eight games that Wales and Scotland have played in this qualifying for 2014 have seen over 1.5 goals. You can find odds of 17/50 on over 1.5 goals being scored in Scotland on Friday night.
12: The number of goals that Wales have scored in their past eleven games, seven of which have been scored by Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale, including both goals against Scotland late last year. Bale is 7/5 to add to his ten international goals.
17: The number of months since Scotland last lost a game at Hampden Park, a 3-2 defeat to World Champions Spain. Since then they have had three draws and two wins with both sides scoring in three of those matches. Bwin has 9/10 on both teams scoring in this particular match.
