Game Preview: Scotland vs. Belgium - Group A - World Cup Qualifying - September 6th, 2013

Scotland vs. Belgium Matchup and Football Jersey BadgesScotland will play against Belgium in the World Cup qualifying match on Friday, September 6th, 2013 at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Scotland are riding high at the moment after a surprise win in Croatia and a well played friendly against England. They are too far behind in Group A to stand a chance of qualifying for the World Cup, but they are looking to make things difficult for Belgium in the great atmosphere of Hampden Park.

Belgium are going into this game with only one thing on their mind; three points. They are undefeated so far in the group with six wins and one draw. With three games to go, a win over Scotland would add a bit of comfort before a tough visit to Croatia on Tuesday.

Let's take a look at the odds for the upcoming match in Glasgow:

Scotland: 9/2
Draw: 11/4
Belgium: 8/11

Belgium are the favourites to win on Friday. A 100 € bet on the guests could return 72 € in profit, while the same bet on Scotland could yield 450 € in profit.

Belgium are a force these days and they feature one of the most expensive teams in football at the moment. Some of the well known names in the lineup for Les Diables Rouges are: Christian Benteke (Aston Villa), Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United) and Axel Witsel (Zenit St. Petersburg).

Kompany (Manchester City) is out of the match against Scotland due to injury and there is a question mark over Eden Hazard (Chelsea) who is suffering from achilles tendon problems.

This should be a great game. Can Scotland surprise in front of their fans in Glasgow, or will Belgium continue their unbeaten run in Group A?
