Is Austria vs Scotland on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch World Cup qualifier

[ad_1]

Scotland travel to Austria for their sixth and must crucial World Cup qualifier of the group stage so far, needing to at least avoid defeat to stay in touch for a potential spot at Qatar 2022.

Denmark are clear at the top but face second-place Israel at the same time that Austria, fourth, face the Scots, third – it’s a round of games which could put one of the nations more or less out of the running for a play-off place if results go against them.

Steve Clarke’s team saw off Moldova in midweek, but the less than stellar 1-0 scoreline highlighted how goalscoring remains a real issue for the Scots.

Austria, meanwhile, suffered a heavy defeat to Israel and may look to make sweeping alterations to both personnel and tactics as they look to pick up a first win of the group stage which isn’t against the minnows of Moldova or the Faroe Islands – which is also Scotland’s group record so far.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the crucial clash.

Prediction

Grim determination and defensive organisation will be the keys for Scotland to get something out of the game – we’ll back them to mostly hold firm and snatch something at the other end, but both nations must improve on their midweek showings. Austria 1-1 Scotland.
