Our tipster thinks that Roberto Martinez's men can claim a comfortable victory at Hampden, but a goal-laden game is not expected in Glasgow on Friday

Scotland play host to Belgium in an international friendly fixture at Hampden Park on Friday night.

The Scots have secured just one win - and have scored just one goal - since Alex McLeish began his second spell as manager and the hosts will surely face a stiff test against Roberto Martinez's men in Glasgow.

Belgium's only defeat in their last 26 matches came against France in the World Cup semi-finals earlier this summer and the Red Devils have lost just one of their last 11 matches against Scotland - a run of results that stretches back almost 47 years.

Scotland suffered a 1-0 defeat against Costa Rica in their only home match since McLeish replaced Gordon Strachan as boss earlier this year and dabblebet's 5/1 (6.0) quote for a home win is indicative of the challenge facing the hosts here.

Belgium can be backed at 1/2 (1.50) to beat the Scots in Glasgow, while dabblebet offer 3/1 (4.0) that this match ends in stalemate.

Team news

Tom Cairney, Matt Phillips, Oli McBurnie and Jack Hendry have withdrawn through injury for Scotland, while Ryan Jack, Steven Naismith and Robert Snodgrass have been added to the squad.

Kevin De Bruyne and Adnan Januzaj are the only members of the World Cup squad absent - both enforced by injury - while Timothy Castagne, Hans Vanaken, Birger Verstraete and Leandro Trossard are new faces in the provisional squad named by Martinez.

Shot-shy Scots

McLeish's men have failed to find the net in four of their last five outings and they may struggle to make much of an impact against Martinez's in-form side; dabblebet go 21/20 (2.05) that the hosts draw a blank here.

Prediction

Belgium should be strong enough to claim victory but, with the Scots misfiring, value could lie in backing exactly two or three goals to be scored at 19/20 (1.95) with dabblebet ahead of Friday's fixture.
