Betting tips for Belgium VS Scotland 11.06.2019
The speed with which Belgium is taking advantage in the matches of this qualifying phase is impressive. The No. 1 FIFA ranking has opened the scoring in the first quarter of an hour of play in their three matches, and does not lose any points after scoring the first goal in a qualifier for the European Championship since September 2011.
Scotland has alternated victories and defeats in official matches away from home since October 2018 (G2, E0, P2). In three of those matches (including the two victories), the Scottish team opened the scoring in the first half, twice a penalty.
However, Scotland (since October 2007) links nine qualifiers for the European Championship without winning at home against selections not included in the last hype (E3, P6). In addition, since September 2003, Scotland recorded a victory and three defeats in their qualifying matches for the Euro played at home against teams of the first hype.
Players to watch: Dries Mertens has opened the scoring for Belgium in two of his last three qualifiers for the Euro played at home.
An Oliver Burke goal in the 89th minute gave Scotland a 2-1 victory against Cyprus in the last matchday.
Statistics to consider: Belgium has won by at least one half keeping its goal clean in seven of its last eight victories in all competitions.
In each of their last four defeats in Euro qualifiers played at home against seeded hosts, Scotland has conceded at least one goal within the first 30 minutes.
Scotland have come to the break losing and without having seen the door in five of their last six qualifiers for the Euro at home against selections not included in the last hype.
