Scotland vs Brazil betting
Scotland vs Brazil odds
Scotland’s manager Craig Levein has already been accused of being overly negative, playing an extremely conservative 4-6-0 formation, with no out and out striker. Scotland have also been hit by a number of high profile injuries to the likes of striker Steven Naismith, defender Phil Bardsley and goalkeeper Iain Turner. Kenny Miller is left as the only experienced international forward and will most likely be chosen to lead the blues attack against the Samba boys. Therefore if you think Scotland can nick a goal in this fixture, it’s most likely to come from Kenny Miller, so a bet on him being the first goalscorer is good value at 12.5 on UniBet.
With David Luiz likely to start for Brazil there is a chance that his reckless tackles could reward Scotland with a penalty which will most likely be taken by central midfield star Charlie Adam, so why not have a bet on him scoring at any time in the fixture at 7.0 on ExtraBet. Late addition to the squad Craig Mackail-Smith has been in fantastic form of late and has netted 27 times in all competitions all season, so why not look at him as a late super sub scoring the last goal.
Brazil are trying to usher in the new era of stars now, with the Ronaldinho’s, Robinho’s and Ronaldo’s having reached their peaks. The new generation are incoming alongside the old guard, expect appearances from Lucio, Julio Cesar and Maicon alongside young blood like Neymar, Ramires and David Luiz. Neymar’s selection will have excited many Brazilian fans as he looks to spearhead the next generation of Brazilians attack, so why not put a bet on him being the first goalscorer at 6.0 on Bet365.
Brazil are clear favourites for this fixture, and they are expected to come out and severely outplay Scotland so a bet on Brazil winning this fixture by 4 or more goals at a price of 9.0 on StanJames. Brazil will be looking to restore some form after a failure to win at the world cup in South Africa. Alexandre Pato is a doubt for the fixture as well as Nilmar so the starting line-up will be touch and go until the start.
