Austrian football is in a mess, two of their biggest clubs have been declared bankrupt and the national coach, has fallen out with several of his senior and most experienced players.

As a result they will be fielding a defence short on experience this evening. Austria find it almost impossible to keep a clean sheet anyway, conceding in at least 11 in a row, including against such luminaries as Canada, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Liechtenstein and Trinidad & Tobago.

Scotland look to have a few goals in them nowadays and Kris Boyd will fancy his chances against this makeshift defence. Several others have something to prove and are looking to cement a place in the side, including Garry O'Connor, who is being given a second chance, after walking out on the team.

These two met two years ago and shared 4 goals, something similar tonight would not surprise me and I expect an "over".

4.5 points "over" 2.25 goals Austria-Scotland 1.93 asian line.

Good Luck.
