They’ll thus travel to Glasgow high on confidence aiming to stay unbeaten against Scotland in the second round of the competition.

The clash might be the last one ever to be played at Hampden Park as the Scottish national team is about to move to Murrayfield after the Albania tie.

The hosts enter their maiden Nations League clash low on confidence after being hammered by Belgium 0-4 in a friendly on Friday evening.

Eden Hazard was on song as the Red Devils cruised past the non-inspiring Scottish side.

The Eagles are certainly much easier rivals for the Scotsmen, but will such a devastating defeat leave a mark in Alex McLeish’s dressing room?

Scotland vs Albania: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head match between the two teams.

Scotland vs Albania: Prediction

Leigh Griffiths was just powerless in the final third as Scotland did nothing to harm Belgium up front on Friday.

Celtic’s forward should have more space against Albania, but it’s hard to see him on the scoresheet based on the poor run of form h0s had with the Bhoys at the start of the Premiership season.

Albania can be very tough to break down as well. They will head into this encouraged with the clean sheet in the match against Israel.

Christian Panucci could park the bus and wait for a chance from counter-attacks through Bekim Balaj and Taulant Xhaka.

Lazio’s keeper Thomas Strakhosha had a fantastic day against Israel and the Eagles could be close to keeping another clean sheet if he can repeat such performance here at Hampden Park.

The loss to Belgium was fifth in last six outings for Scotland who failed to find the back of the net in each of these defeats.

We thus have to recognize the value in backing the visitors to keep things tight at the back here at the sky-high odds of 4.00. The bet you’ll hardly make a mistake with is Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.60.
