Stuart Armstrong will go for back-to-back wins in EURO 2020 Qualifying tonight as Scotland face the daunting prospect of FIFA ranking leaders Belgium at the King Baudouin Stadium at 7.45pm BST in Brussels tonight.

Armstrong’s introduction from the bench and two-minute cameo coincided with his side’s dramatic late winner against Cyprus on Saturday night and the Saints midfielder will have his eye on a further opportunity to impress new manager Steve Clarke.

The Scots have recovered from the humbling opening-day defeat to Kazakhstan in Astana back in March and now sit just three points behind Group I front-runners Belgium following consecutive wins.

Their main qualification rivals look set to be Russia who have the same number of points after three matches, albeit having already faced and lost to Roberto Martinez’s Belgians.

Goal difference may come into play; the Russians scored 13 times across their two victories against San Marino and Kazakhstan.
