Luxembourg v Scotland Odds: Back Jordan Rhodes To Score The Opener

Scotland embark on life without Craig Levein on Wednesday night when they take on European minnows Luxembourg in an international friendly. Levein was eventually sacked last week following Scotland’s dismal start to 2014 World Cup qualification. The position remains vacant meaning The Tartan Army will be led by caretaker boss Billy Stark, who will be looking to boost his chances of clinching the job on a permanent basis with a convincing win at the Stade Josy Barthel.

The FIFA World Rankings suggest Scotland (70th) will simply be too strong for their opponents, who are 74 places below them down in 144th. Furthermore the hosts have won a pitiful three of their last 36 fixtures and have suffered seven defeats from their last nine games.

Paddy Power have installed Scotland as the red-hot 8/13 favourites to win for the first time in five matches, while Luxembourg are an outside bet at 9/2 to claim a rare victory. Alternatively a draw is available at 14/5.

Scotland’s last five wins have all been by a single goal, making a 1-0 away scoreline a tempting at 5/1. However, their defence has only kept one clean sheet in their last nine matches, meaning a 2-1 victory at 7/1 could be the way to go. Scotland can also be backed at 7/2 to win both halves.

Jordan Rhodes will be eager to take full advantage of facing a leaky defence, which has conceded a whopping nine goals in two matches. The Blackburn Rovers striker is the bookies favourite at 4/1 in the first goalscorer market, while he is available at 11/10 to score anytime and 13/2 to grab two or more goals. Kenny Miller will most likely join him in attack, with the 32-year-old worth a bet at 13/10 to get his name on the scoresheet against a side that have not kept a clean sheet in their last 17 matches.

Luxembourg stunned Portugal back in September when they took the lead through Daniel Da Mota who is priced at 9/1 to open the scoring once again on Wednesday. Mota also scored against Northern Ireland four days later and could prove to be to a decent bet at 16/5 to score anytime.

Luxembourg may be a long shot to claim the win but there has arguably never been a better time to play Scotland. The Tartan Army are managerless and short of a host of regulars. Morale is low following a poor start to their Brazil 2014 campaign and they have only recorded one win from their last seven matches. The hosts can be found at 13/1 to sneak a 1-0 win with Paddy Power Bookmakers, while a 1-1 draw can be found at 6/1.
