UEFA Nations League betting tips: Scotland v Albania

News
Alex McLeish backed his youthful Scotland squad to make a major impact as he warned James McArthur he might not get back in.

Scotland are looking to bounce back from a thrashing by Belgium - that landed us a 16/1 winner - but shouldn't take victory for granted against Albania.

Albania to beat Scotland at 19/4
Scotland’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Belgium was good news for us, bringing in a 16/1 winner, but it was a sorry night for the Scots as they were put to the sword by a high-class side. It’s a significant step down in grade for this UEFA Nations League C encounter, but Albania’s chances of an upset are surely greater than these odds suggest.

They beat Israel 1-0 in their first Nations League clash on Friday and have beaten Turkey away from home as recently as November last year despite playing over half that match with 10 men. They are clearly not a great side but will fear nothing against a Scotland side that has now lost five of the last six.

 

Albania or Draw double chance at 21/20
While the Albania win price is too good to pass up, there is a case for topping up and getting the draw onside at odds-against. This looks another price that gives Scotland far too much credit, and Albania not enough.
