Scotland – Faroe Islands Preview
- In desperate need of a win after claiming just two points so far, Scotland coach Steve Clarke may be breathing a sigh of relief that it’s the Faroe Islands that they face next. However, whilst this tiny island nation has a population similar in size to Scottish city Inverness, they’ve twice taken points off Scotland in the past (W7, D2), and in only three of nine previous H2Hs have the Scots cleared a -2 handicap.
- However, it’s unlikely lightning will strike a third time, especially as Scotland have won their last three home matches vs teams outside of FIFA’s top 100, albeit they beat a -2 handicap just once, and conceded the opener in another. A seven-game unbeaten run at home (W5, D2) shows they should make light work of the Faroes though, and extend their five-game HT/FT winning H2H run at home.
- The plucky Faroes gave Austria a fright as they scored the opener last time out, bringing back memories of the famous 1-0 victory the islanders’ managed vs the Austrians in their first-ever competitive fixture. However a repeat wasn’t to be as they fell to a 3-1 defeat, although that was their fifth consecutive game in which both teams scored, and their seventh straight in which the Faroes found the net – their best-ever scoring run!
- Expect the visitors to fight hard to keep that record scoring streak going, although their Austria defeat was their only away outing of the last five vs teams in FIFA’s top 100 in which the Faroes scored. Not only did they trail at HT in all five, they conceded 2+ first-half goals in three.
- Players to watch: John McGinn has scored five goals across Scotland’s last two home matches vs teams ranked 100 or worse, whilst Sonni Nattestad opened the scoring in the Faroes’ last match.
- Hot stat: The second half has never been the highest scoring half in any previous H2H.
