Ryan Giggs could change his forwards choices around, with Gareth Bale inclined to direct the line rather than Kieffer Moore, who the Wales boss confirmed will be assessed after picking up a knock against Slovakia In the event the Juventus midfielder has been cleared to play.

The equation for Wales is a simple one. A win on Sunday renders their Euro 2020 fate in their handswith three points taking them to within three of Croatia using a game in hand.
Croatia and Reduce will seal their passage to next summers championship, setting up a direct shootout involving Hungary, Slovakia and Wales for that runners-up spot with two matches to playwith.
Charlie Nicholas prediction:That is yet another difficult one. I would not be optimistic of Aaron Ramsey but Wales have it so for this reason, you may need to fancy them. Croatia have gone backward after this World Cups glory. They have awakened a mark with their World Cup exhibiting along with also the reputation they obtained, but theres something about Wales that tells me they are going in the perfect way with Ryan Giggs, and I am expecting them to acquire this.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Team information: after serving a suspension against Russia, Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is available for Scotland.
McTominays yield provides an increase to Steve Clarkes squad, which has been decimated by injury to Grant Hanley, Ryan Jack, Kenny McLean and Oli McBurnie, all of whom remain inaccessible.

San Marino goalkeeper Elia Benedettini (knee) remains a permanent basis for those visitors.

Charlie Nicholas prediction:This is the 1 game I am convinced on! Steve Clarke owes nobody any favours. There was a lot of people that said they had been hurt and did not want to play for Scotland - a select number of wished to play with and simply turned up - . Steven Fletcher has been a slave for Scotland I believe despite not being selected, hes their number nine currently. That should change for the San Marino game.
Not a lot of people will turn up at Hampden, but allow Clarke try something and get a win under his belt. Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor happen to be adequate so I would play them both, as well as Fletcher, Billy Gilmour and also Lawrence Shankland set to come in, Scotland will win professionally and also get the development they need before the play-offs.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 4-0 (4/1 with Sky Bet)
Team news: Romelu Lukaku was ruled out as the Inter Milan striker looks to completely recover from a spine injury, meaning after scoring off the bench on Thursday, Christian Benteke might be passed a start.
An may be fielded by roberto Martinez with eligibility Thorgan Hazard, Adnan Januzaj, Divock Origi, Michy Batshuayi and Axel Witsel were among the high-profile titles that failed to feature in the 9-0 win over San Marino.
Kazakhstan can no more reach Euro 2020 through the European Qualifiers, and of progressing to the play-offs Michal Bilek can seem to make modifications with an outside chance nonetheless, after enduring a 2-1 home defeat to Cyprus.

Belgium qualified for Euro 2020 thanks to their 9-0 thrashing of San Marino out time, and it seems to be only a matter of time before Russia join them in the finals.
A win for the hosts could breath life into their outside chance of beating the Russians to place in the group although A point in Cyprus would be enough for Russia to achieve a consecutive important championship.
Kazakhstan will be leapfrogged by scotland to fourth with victory over San Marino, a rubber game that introduces the opportunity to the side of Steve Clarke.
