Scotland Has Slight Edge To Win

Published on November 14th, 2014 1:58 am EST


A Euro 2016 qualifying match between Scotland and Ireland is set to take place on Friday, November 14th.

There have been some surprises in Group D so far, as perennial favourite, Germany, is currently sitting in a tie for third place with Scotland. Here are the current Group D standings as of this moment:

Poland, 7 points
Ireland, 7 points
Germany, 4 points
Scotland, 4 points
Georgia, 3 points
Gibraltar, 0 points

Poland threw a bit of a wrench into the works on October 11th when they managed to topple Germany 2-0 at home. Sure, Germany is still expected to finish at the top of the group when all is said and done, but things have been made a bit more interesting by Poland's result on October 11th. Germany followed this disappointing result with a 1-1 draw (at home, no less) against Ireland on October 14th and now have some work to do.

Ireland could really put themselves in a good position if they beat Scotland on Friday, while Scotland needs a victory to avoid falling too far behind the pack.


Here are the current odds for Friday's match between Scotland and Ireland:

Scotland, 2.40
Draw, 3.10
Ireland, 3.10

According to these odds, Scotland has a 41.67% chance of winning, while Ireland's odds of winning currently sit at 32.26%. Of all of the Euro 2016 qualifying matches this week, this is one of the closest in the eyes of the bookmakers.

One more note - oddsmakers are expecting a low scoring battle, as the Under 2.5 Goals line is currently sitting at 1.44. According to the bookmakers, there is a 69.44% chance that there are 2 goals are less scored in the game.
