First Goalscorer John McGinn 10/1 with Bet365

Scotland went top of their group on Thursday after an impressive 3-0 win over Ukraine thanks to two goals from Lyndon Dykes, his first double for his country and a fine finish from John McGinn, who made it three goals in his last six international matches.

The Tartan Army have made Hampden Park a fortress in the Nations League, remaining unbeaten in their seven home games so far in the competition, winning six of them, scoring 13 goals, keeping five clean sheets and conceding just three along the way. It will be tough task for a Republic of Ireland side that have scored just four goals in their four Nations League games in 2022, although three of them did come in the reverse fixture back in June.

Stephen Kenny’s men started the campaign with back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Armenia and Ukraine, but have recently bounced back, having taken four points from their last two matches in the competition, including the aforementioned 3-0 victory over Steve Clarke’s side.

Scotland vs Republic of Ireland match stats

John McGinn has been Scotland’s most important player under Steve Clarke, scoring 14 goals and providing six assists in his 35 appearances under the Scot, at least 12 more than any other player in that time. The Aston Villa man has also impressed in the Nations League, being directly involved in four goals in four games in the competition in 2022 (2 goals, 2 assists), including the opening goal of the game last time out against Ukraine.

Something Steven Gerrard needs to pay close attention to, with the midfielder failing to score in any of his 26 Premier League games so far in 2022.
