thumbnail Hello,

Gordon Strachan takes his side to Skopje looking to over turn some recent poor form but our tipster is backing the home side to heap more misery on the visiting side

Macedonia host Scotland on Tuesday and both sides will be disappointed with their efforts in Group A this campaign. Scotland sit bottom of the group with five points from eight matches, with Macedonia just above them in fourth place, two points ahead.

Scotland come into this match after another poor performance in their world cup qualifying last week. Belgium visited Hampden on Friday and came away with three points after a 2-0 win meaning Gordon Strachan's side failed to build on their victory away at Croatia back in June.

That was Scotland's only victory in qualifying, having lost their previous four group games. Coral price them as underdogs at 12/5 (3.40) to take three points.

Macedonia had also gone through a shocking run earlier this year, losing four games in a row, but have picked up their form of late, beating Bulgaria in a friendly, before winning a tight game against Wales at home last Friday in qualifying.

Cedomir Janevski will be keen for his side to extend that winning run, and Coral price them as favourites for the match at 5/4 (2.25). The same firm price the draw at 21/10 (3.10).

Scotland have had a qualifying campaign to forget and despite the win away at Croatia, Gordon Strachan will be able to take few positives from their matches this term.

The price of Macedonia to win at 5/4 (2.25) is a fantastic price with Coral. Janevski's side have picked up of late with those two straight victories at home in the last month, and with Scotland still struggling to find any sort of form, backing Macedonia looks a solid wager.
