The Danes have qualified for Qatar and the Scots have sealed a play-off place. Can Scotland
Fresh from securing second position in Group F and a spot in the World Cup 2022 qualification playoffs, Scotland will welcome runaway group leaders Denmark to Hampden Park on Monday evening.
Friday’s 2-0 victory in Moldova was enough to secure Scotland second place in the group. Meanwhile, Denmark made it nine straight wins with a 3-1 victory over the Faroe Islands.
Scotland will be able to call on the services of Lyndon Dykes. The striker is available after sitting out the clash with Moldova through suspension. The 26-year-old is expected to come back into the team alongside Ché Adams, as part of a two-pronged attack.
Stuart Armstrong could be the player to miss out if Dykes does return, with John McGinn moving into a deeper position, to team up with Callum McGregor and Billy Gilmour in midfield.
Scott McTominay has been suffering from illness and remains a doubt. That means that a back three of Jack Hendry, Liam Cooper, and Kieran Tierney should again take to the field here.
As for Denmark, head coach Kasper Hjulmand is expected to make some changes to the side that started from the first whistle against the Faroe Islands on Friday.
Thomas Delaney is likely to come back into the centre of midfield, while Jacob Bruun Larsen could start, having scored from the bench last time out.
Yussuf Poulsen, who is the leading goal-scorer in the squad, because of Christian Eriksen’s absence, will again lead the line for the Danish.
