Scotland v Finland Football Betting Tips

Scotland v Finland football betting tips

Scotland will host Finland at Hampden Park in one last warm-up match before Euro 2024, so enjoy our Scotland v Finland Football Betting Tips. The Tartan Army will head to their second consecutive Euros finals after qualifying for the 2020 edition. Yet Steve Clarke’s side will be eager to improve their recent form after some under-par performances. Finland failed to qualify for the Euros, despite making the play-off rounds. The Northern European outfit had a difficult qualification campaign – followed by some poor friendly results. This friendly match kicks off at 7:45 p.m. It will be shown live on the BBC.

Form and Team News

Scotland kickstarted their Euros preparations with a 2-0 win against minnows Gibraltar on Monday. Clarke’s side struggled to break down Gibraltar until Ryan Christie and Che Adams struck late on. The result ended Scotland’s seven-match winless run, including five defeats. Finland finished third in Euros qualification Group H with six wins and four losses. The Eagle-owls then lost 4-1 to Wales in the Euros play-off match. Finland bounced back with a 2-1 friendly win over Estonia before a 4-2 thrashing at Portugal last time out.

Scotland and Finland head into this friendly match with no injuries or suspensions.

Match Winner Bet

Scotland and Finland come into this match in similar form, which could make for an even encounter. Finland is considered the underdogs amongst the bookies, as the Eagle-owls have lost five of their last eight. The Nordic nation has also struggled on the road recently. They have lost three of their last four away, with their only victory in this streak a narrow win at San Marino (2-1). As a result, Unibet have an away win at Hampden Park at 23/5. A draw might be a better selection, with these two sides well-matched. Scotland have unbeaten in three of their last five matches, drawing twice, while the nations have drawn two of their last four head to heads. At 29/10, Bet365 has decent value for a draw. However, following their win in Gibraltar, Clarke’s outfit will be eager to notch another confidence-boosting win before their Euros’ opener with Germany on June 14. The Tartan Army are in decent home form too, winning six of their previous nine at Hampden Park. Scotland have also beaten Finland twice in their last three meetings. Ultimately, Scotland will be confident of sealing another friendly win, and they are considered favourites, with QuinnBet offering 7/10 odds for a home win.  

Both Teams To Score Betting

Scottish and Finnish clean sheets have been a rarity recently, and we are tipping a BTTS scoreline at Hampden Park. Scotland has conceded at least once in seven of their last eight in all competitions, with their only shutout against Gibraltar. Finland has also regularly seen goals at both ends, and BTTS has landed in their previous four fixtures. Moreover, four of the last six clashes between Scotland and Finland have finished with a BTTS scoreline. Due to this, we feel Ladbrokes’s 11/10 odds for both teams to score on Friday is excellent value.

Anytime Goalscorer Bets

Scotland and Finland have seasoned goalscorers capable of striking on any stage. Finland’s talisman Teemu Pukki is a regular goalscoring threat, and the former Norwich man has scored 42 international goals. Pukki was in top form during the March internationals too, netting in the play-off defeat to Wales and twice in the 4-2 loss in Portugal. The veteran striker is always a solid anytime goalscorer pick, and Bet365 is offering 15/4 odds for more Pukki goals against Scotland. However, our top goalscorer pick is Scotland’s in-form attacker Che Adams. The Southampton striker is likely to start on Friday after coming off the bench against Gibraltar. Adams managed to strike in his late cameo last time out, and he has six goals in his last nine matches for club and country. At 15/8, also provided by bet365, there is decent value in selecting more Adams success in front of goal at Hampden Park.

Scotland needs to get some form rolling ahead of the Euro finals next week. Clarke’s side has the potential to defeat Finland in this final warm-up match. But the Tartan Army will have to be wary of a goal-happy Eagle-owls side on Friday.
