World Cup Qualifiers: Scotland v Croatia Match Preview
A look ahead to this week’s 2014 World Cup Qualifier Group A fixture at Hampden Park
Tuesday 15 October 2013
Scotland will entertain Croatia on Tuesday night and know that if they fail to win, they could potentially finish bottom of Group A. Croatia will be hoping to avoid what happened to them just a few months ago, while on the other hand Scotland will be hoping to replicate the June result, as the Tartan army claimed a famous 1-0 victory.
The Scots are still looking for their first win at home during their campaign, while the visitors will be hoping to secure their place in the play-offs for next summer's tournament having already secured second place - a win would be enough for the Croatians.
