Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – Arena Petrol Stadium

Date: 8th October 2017

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

Scotland did their chances of making it to the playoffs the World of good by securing a dramatic late win against Slovakia a few nights back.

Now they need to win this game and their 2nd place in the group will be all but guaranteed although they still have to hope that they are not the unlucky last team that will miss out on the playoff spot.

These two teams’ previous results makes this game look like a very low scoring contest.

Slovenia have not had the best campaign so far but their main strength is at the back and they showed how resilient they can be by holding the English team for 90 minutes before conceding a dramatic winner in their last game.

On average, they have conceded less than 1 goal per game and Scotland are likely going to find it hard to break them down here.

Scotland know this is a big task with Slovakia almost certainly winning against Malta at home, the Tartan army will be looking to get more than a point from this game.

Their home form is commendable if not excellent however they have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 games away from home and their only away points have come against the two bottom of the table sides.
