Moldova vs Scotland: Prediction and Betting Tips
Moldova playing for respect
In 2008 Moldova were ranked 37th on the Fifa world ranking system. Markedly, they recorded wins over Wales, Georgia, and Hungary en route to that position. However, in recent years they slipped down as a result of bad results and are now 181th. Moreover, in all of their 64 WCQ games, Moldova registered just five wins.
Currently, coach Roberto Bordin’s team sit at the bottom of Group F with just one point. In fact, they lost seven of their eight matches conceding on average three goals per game and scoring four. Despite losing their last match in Israel, Moldova had a fine performance scoring a rare goal and creating six shots on target.

Scotland looking to clinch qualification in this match
A win for Scotland in this game will assure them the second spot and a playoff berth. Notably, Scotland are looking to appear in the World Cup final for the first time since 1998. In fact, the eight-time qualifiers to the WC have slipped down the Fifa ranking system in recent years. To be more precise from 13th place in 2007 to their current 42nd position.
With five wins two draws and one loss, Scotland are having a fine qualification campaign. Surely, coach Steve Clarke will urge his team to make no mistakes in this game. Therefore the Scots need to maintain their last two away games record when they won both. Nonetheless, Clarke will want a much more decisive approach than the first game when they beat Moldova narrowly 1-0.
Moldova vs Scotland Key Points
- Moldova have no clean sheets in eight games in the 2022 WCQ

Obviously, Scotland are the overwhelming favorites to win with bookies. And it is completely in their hands to decide the outcome of this match. However, the low-scoring average in away games by Scotland gives us the doubt that they can score more than three goals here.
Hence we will back under 3 goals in this match for our primary prediction. And for our second one, we will back a Double chance and both teams to score combo.
