Hungary v Scotland | Tuesday 27th March 2018, 19:00 | BBC1 Scotland
I hate pointless internationals and Scotland’s clash against Costa Rica last week was a case in point.
After Alex McLeish revealed his starting XI I told anyone listening in the office – to be fair I’m usually ignored – to back Costa Rica.
Big Eck’s side contained too many debutants and was too experimental to test the World Cup finalists but the result didn’t matter so criticism was over the top.
On Tuesday McLeish may include fewer youngsters in Hungary and again the advice is to hold back betting until just before kick-off.
From last week’s squad Grant Hanley, Matt Ritchie and Scott McTominay have returned to their clubs while new skipper Charlie Mulgrew could be used sparingly with Blackburn in action on Thursday.
The Hungarians are in disarray and Friday’s 3-2 home defeat to Kazakhstan was a shocker. Scotland should win it but the best bet could be to back Scotland draw no bet at 26/25 with Marathon.
