Scotland vs Poland by Hassy

It really is a huge night at Hampden with Scotland’s Euro 2016 future up in the air. Defeat will see Gordon Strachan’s side eliminated, a draw could keep hopes of a play-off alive and a victory will put them in pole position for third place unless Ireland beat Germany. Scotland's being in the last chance saloon, coupled with Lewandowski who is currently the top scorer in the qualifying campaign with ten goals, means that I can only foresee goals galore.


A draw would see Scotland relying upon Germany to beat the Republic, so you would expect Gordon Strachan's team to go all out for a victory. Strachan will have taken positives from the performance in the narrow 3-2 defeat to Germany, in which they pushed the world champions and looked dangerous in attack.


The manager will be without the suspended James Morrison, with Kevin McDonald and Charlie Mulgrew are out with injury. Ikechi Anya and Darren Fletcher are doubts having missed training sessions this week.


Poland put behind them a draw with Greece and a loss to Germany last time out, with a comprehensive 8-1 demolition of Gibraltar. Since that game their lead striker, Robert Lewandowski, has gone from strength to strength, scoring a record ten goals in five days last week for his Bayern Munich club team.


The Polish coach Adam Nawalka has guided his side to second in Group D, with his side in a position where a win against either Scotland or the Republic of Ireland is likely to see them clinch automatic qualification. To aid their qualification Nawalka has been able to draw upon a full-strength squad, with the only new addition being the recalled Artur Sobiech who has been in good form for Hannover 96 this season.


In a game which both teams will see a win as a guarantee of qualification I will predict an open game. Six of Poland's eight qualifiers have broken the three goal barrier. Scotland have been less prolific but when they have faced the two best sides in the group - Germany and Poland - all three games have produced over 2.5 goals.


It is worth also noting that the first game between these two sides finished 2-2 so another repeat of that game would see the bet landing comfortably.
