I have two more selections for today's football action and will be back later, with the ATP Tennis.
Italy suffered a World Cup hangover and got their 2008 campaign off to a very slow start. Wins over Ukraine and Georgia, mean that beating Scotland tonight, will leave them able to decide their own fate and that is too big an opportunity to miss.
The Azzurri tend to win, when they absolutely have to and this is such a case. Scotland have improved and put together some good results, with a team lacking any star players, but with plenty of fight and spirit. That can only take you so far at this level, they were fortunate to beat Georgia at the weekend and a similar showing in Italy can only end one way.
The handicap quote is tough, but the hosts should have enough class to cover, a 2 goal home win for me.
The Netherlands were held to a 0-0 home draw by Romania, last time out, a result that the visitors set their stall out for.
They travel to face a Slovenia side, that have only collected points against the group minnows, Luxembourg and Albania, so far. Therefore , the hosts cannot sit back and defend, they will have to look for the win, that will keep their slender qualification hopes alive.
This should suit the visitors, who will have more space to show their class.
Slovenia are without a couple of key players and are short of a holding midfielder, or much creative talent. Away win.
