Scotland vs Albania predictions and betting tips for their UEFA Nations League fixture on Monday evening. Albania won their opening fixture in the competition when edging past Israel, while Scotland haven’t featured in the competition yet.
Scotland have had some tough fixtures as of late and it’s not really a surprise to see them on a three-game losing streak. In 2017 the Scots went on an eight-game unbeaten run against teams against similar quality to Monday’s opponents. On home turf, we expect Alex McLeish’s side to get up and running in this competition and we fancy Scotland to take all three points. Our first betting tip for our Scotland vs Albania predictions is going to be Scotland to Win and it’s best valued at 4/5 with Ladbrokes.
Scotland have failed to score in five of their last six matches and on Monday we feel as though they’ll be playing with a point to prove. Griffiths is the frontman for Alex McLeish’s side, and though he’s only netted twice this season and four times for Scotland in his career, we feel as though Scotland will have a bundle of chances which will benefit Griffiths. We’re taking a slight gamble here but we fancy Griffiths to get on the scoresheet against Albania. Our second Scotland vs Albania prediction is Leigh Griffiths to score anytime and it’s best priced at 7/4 with Unibet.
As mentioned, we are expecting a Scotland win here but they have been having problems in defence recently. The Scots have only kept one clean sheet in their last six and we feel as though they may concede once again on Monday despite us tipping them to get the 3 points. Albania have conceded eight goals in their last three away matches so they are seemingly vulnerable at the back, especially on their travels. To conclude our Scotland vs Albania predictions, we are going with Scotland to win 2-1 at best odds of 8/1 with William Hill.
These sides have never met before, but we are tipping a Scotland win at odds of 4/5 with Ladbrokes, so we’ll be hoping they can justify favouritism. Meanwhile, the draw is valued at 12/5 with Betfred and an away win for the Albanians is valued at 4/1 with Coral.
