It’s a big night for Scotland as they look to keep their Euro 2016 qualification hopes alive on Thursday with at least a point against Poland. Scotland are in a tough position as they can’t rely on their own results, they need third-placed Ireland to slip up.
A third place finish in the group, which would mean a qualification play off round, is the best that the Scots can achieve. However, if Ireland win either of their remaining matches against Germany or Poland (not easy) then the Scots would be out no matter what they produce. They have to at least get a point on Thursday.
Scotland finish their campaign against Gibraltar so that should be an easy three points, so this where it counts. If they draw against the Poles and beat Gibraltar while Ireland lose both of their games, Scotland would edge third place because of their positive head to head against the Irish.
If Ireland draw both of their games, Scotland would need to win both of theirs. It could be drama all the way and the bookmakers can’t split the Scots and Poles, Betfair pricing them both around 9/5 for the win. Will the Scots be able to handle Robert Lewandowski though who has scored 12 goals in his last four games for Bayern Munich and tops scoring in Group D with 10 goals in eight games?
