Scotland and the Faroe Islands will face each other in the 2022 World Cup qualifier this week. The Group F game at Hampden Park in Glasgow is slated to kick off at 7:45pm UK time on Wednesday and promises to be interesting game of football.

Scotland

Scotland have made a rather disappointing start to their 2022 World Cup qualification campaign, and after just two matches, it already looks like they will not win the group. Steve Clarke’s side played out a 2-2 draw with Austria at Hampden Park in their opening game before drawing 1-1 draw with Israel away from home.

Clarke’s side are third in Group F at the moment with two points from two matches, four points behind leaders Denmark and two behind second-placed Austria. The Faroe Islands are the minnows in the group, and Scotland will be confident of picking up all three points from the encounter on Wednesday evening.

Team News:

Craig Gordon could replace David Marshall in goal.

Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are arguably the weakest team in the group and are unlikely to finish in the top two. Hakan Ericson’s side are fourth in Group F at the moment with a point from two matches, level on points with Israel and Moldova.

Ericson’s side kicked off their 2022 World Cup qualification campaign with a 1-1 draw with Moldova away from home. The Faroe Islands then lost 3-1 to Austria, and now they will be determined to bounce back against an unconvincing Scotland team in Glasgow.

Team News:

Jakup Andreasen and Klaemint Olsen could come in for the Faroe Islands.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Scotland have won seven and drawn two of 9 revious games against Faroe Islands.
  • Scotland are without a win in five matches in all competitions.
  • Faroe Islands have lost 11 of their past 13 World Cup and European Championship qualifiers.
  • Scotland have won all five of their home matches against Faroe Islands.
  • Scotland are third in the group, while Faroe Islands are fourth.

Conclusion

The Faroe Islands will sense a chance against Scotland and are likely to score, but the home side are a better team and have some wonderful players and should get the job done.

Prediction: Scotland to win 2-1

Best Odds: 9/1
