The equation for Wales is a simple one. A triumph on Sunday renders their Euro 2020 fate in their handswith three points taking them to within 3 of Croatia having a vital match in hand.
Croatia and lose will seal their passage to next summers tournament, setting up a shootout involving Hungary Slovakia and Wales for this runners-up place with two games to play.
Charlie Nicholas forecast:This is another difficult one. Wales have it into their hands, so for this reason, you would need to elaborate them, although I would not be hopeful of Aaron Ramsey coming back . Croatia have gone backwards after the glory of the World Cup. They have stepped up a mark with their World Cup showing and the standing they obtained, but there is something about Wales that tells me theyre moving in the ideal direction with Ryan Giggs, and I am expecting them to win this
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Team news: after serving a suspension against Russia Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is readily available for Scotland.
McTominays yield provides a boost to Steve Clarkes group, which was decimated by injury to Grant Hanley, Ryan Jack, Kenny McLean and Oli McBurnie, most of whom remain inaccessible.

San Marino goalkeeper Elia Benedettini (knee) remains a long-term basis for those visitors.

Charlie Nicholas forecast:It is the one game I am confident on! Steve Clarke owes no favours. There was a lot of people who said they had been injured and didnt wish to play for Scotland – a select number of wished to play and only turned up – . Steven Fletcher has been a very long slave for Scotland I believe despite not being chosen, hes their number nine currently. That should change for the San Marino game.
Not a great deal of people may turn up at Hampden, but let Clarke try something and get a win under his belt. Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor happen to be decent so I would play with them equally, as well as Fletcher, Billy Gilmour and Lawrence Shankland place to come in, Scotland will win professionally and also get the development they want before the play-offs.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 4-0 (4/1 with Sky Bet)
