Tight and tense 90-minutes expected at Hampden Park

Following their qualification for the Euros, Scotland will be feeling confident heading into a potentially tricky home game against Austria on Thursday. Steve Clarke has called-up Southampton striker Che Adams for the first time, in a bid to put an end to Scotland's struggles in front of goal. Adams is a natural goalscorer and has netted 7 goals in the Premier League this season for the Saints, but can he make his mark on his international debut? The hosts haven't selected Leigh Griffiths or James Forrest for these games, but the captain Andrew Robertson will play and Scotland have lots of experience between the post in Gordon and Marshell, while John McGinn offers a goal threat from midfield.

Austria have been in good form of late and will have plenty of belief that they can claim all 3pts on Thursday. Most of the visitor's squad play their club football in Germany and will therefore be very fit, competitive and confident. David Alaba stands out as the star player for Austria and although he is down as a defender, the Bayern Munich man can play in midfield and is a danger from set-pieces. The visitors are without Marko Arnautović and Julian Baumgartlinger, two key quality players, but Lorient striker Adrian Grbić has netted 4-goals in 7 appearances for his country and Marcel Sabitzer has plenty of experience up front, scoring and creating goals.
