Bet Live on Football: Scotland vs. Qatar Friendly

Scotland hosts Qatar for an international friendly match (kickoff 19:45 UK time)

Edinburgh's Easter Road stadium is the venue for today's international football friendly between the national teams of Scotland and Qatar (kickoff 19:45 UK time).

This match takes place in a very sensitive timing, with FIFA officials apprehended for bribery charges and President Sepp Blatter stepping down from the presidency. But besides the politics, we have an interesting game before us between two teams that have never met before.

Warm-up for Scotland

Scotland will use today's game mainly as a warm-up head for the team's trip to Dublin next week, where the team will face Ireland in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. In terms of experience and skill, Scotland is the clear favorite to win the game.

The Scots are in good condition, showing good football in their recent performances: They've won four of their last six games, losing one against England and going off with a draw against Poland. In terms of performance at home, Scotland has emerged victorious in 5 of their last 7 home games, something that doesn't bode well for the Qatari visitors.

Low Odds for Qatar

Qatar is far from being a football power, and its name is brought up mainly because of the controversial FIFA decision to host the 2022 World Cup in the country. This decision could change now that FIFA is under investigation for widespread corruption, and the team's situation on the pitch isn't any better. Qatar lost all of their 3 group matches in the Asian Cup campaign, conceding 7 goals and scoring only one.
