Kazakhstan and Scotland open hostilities for qualifying for the Europe 2020 Championship a tournament to be played in 12 European cities to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the competition something unique and unprecedented that will allow 24 Selections to be present in this format. The walk starts already this week and promises quite disputed games.
Kazakhstan vs Scotland Football Betting Tips
Kazakhstan qualified in Group I together with Scotland, Russia, Belgium, Cyprus and San Marino.
With Belgians and Russians as clear favorites to ensure the transition to the Euro, Kazakhstan looks to this qualification as a possibility to continue its growth in the world of football.
In the League of Nations they were 2nd in Group D (4th division), while in the last qualifying round, for the 2018 World Cup, neither game won.
As for the squad for the start of this qualification, most of the selected players play in the championship of Kazakhstan, dividing between Kairat and Astana.
A championship that started shortly (goes only with two games) and is relatively weak. Alexander Merkel is the winner. A midfielder who trained in the younger ranks of Germany and played in the Dutch 1st league.
A return to a selection that represented only once, also in qualifying for a European, this time for Euro 2016.
Scotland is an outsider in this group. It is in my opinion the only team in the group that can intrude into the “secured” places of Russia and Belgium. The latest indicators show that.
In the League of Nations they were first in their group in League C (3rd division) and in the next League of Nations will compete in League B. Already in the final qualifying stage was a black nail outside the play-offs for the 2018 World Cup , with a draw, on the road, against England.
It is a selection that has grown, but that has lacked the said experience in great competitions for the decisive moment does not fail and to obtain the clearance.
For the first time, Alex McLeish called up names like David Bates (Hamburg), Scott McTominay (Manchester United), among others, among the best of the Scottish league and some familiar faces of the Premier League and the English 2nd League.
Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser and Liverpool captain Andy Robertson are confirmed to be injured, adding to the absence of retired Allan McGregor, the British national team’s top captain.
Important players who will surely miss the double commitment.
Best Free Betting Tips Kazakhstan vs Scotland
A unique encounter that marks the first official game between Kazakhstan and Scotland. Kazakhstan is one of the most desirable teams for qualifications, however, at home they are often a tough nut to crack.
Moreover, in a first meeting where everyone starts with zero points and the morale is completely different from a game that is already far from the top. Scotland faces a long trip to Kazakhstan and does not carry a few basic pieces.
They are a set to take into account in this group, but I think they are somewhat fragile for this first match. Not finding a clear favorite, given the advantage of Kazakhstan play at home, I think this match has the face of draw. A result that will fall better for Kazakhstan, but that allows Scotland to enter with half a foot in this qualification.
