After a diabolical performance in Kazakhstan on Thursday, Scotland will be hoping for redemption against San Marino at the San Marino Stadium.

No team news for San Marino is available at time of writing.
Scotland will be without Kieran Tierney, who has returned to Celtic with a hip problem.
Andrew Robertson is available for selection after dental surgery kept him out of Thursday’s defeat to Kazakhstan, and will start ahead of Aberdeen’s Graham Shinnie.
Callum Paterson and Ryan Fraser could feature after Cardiff and Bournemouth refused them permission to play in Kazakhstan due to the plastic pitch.
- Scotland are unbeaten in six previous meetings against San Marino, winning every match.
- San Marino are yet to score at least once against Scotland, having conceded 19 goals across their six previous clashes.
- Scotland have conceded only once this century against the five current lowest ranked members of UEFA.
After Thursday’s lethargic performance, Scotland need to fire on all cylinders here otherwise they can forget Euro 2020 right now.
San Marino therefore are the perfect opposition with just one point in their history of competitive fixtures, and a side which the Scots shouldn’t lose to.
Defeat then there are no words to describe this Scotland team in any form of defence or criticism.
I however fancy Scotland to get a comfortable but unimpressive win in what surely has to be Alex McLeish’s final game in charge.
Prediction: San Marino 0-2 Scotland
Result: San Marino 0-2 Scotland
