Scotland will have fewer than 300 fans in Moldova next month as Steve Clarke’s side look to secure their spot in the World Cup playoffs – with the Tartan Army only allocated 294 tickets for the November 12 clash.

Moldova will host Scotland at the 10400-capacity Zimbru Stadium but, due to Covid restrictions, the ground will only be half-full at best – Moldova’s tie against Denmark last month attracted a crowd of only 2,642.

Steve Clarke’s side know a win over the minnows will secure their playoff spot with a game to spare as Scotland look to reach the finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1998.

The Tartan Army must also present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test to be allowed into the stadium.

Tickets priced £5 go on sale from Thursday to the 27000 members of the Scotland Supporters Club.

 

Moldova currently sit bottom of Group F with seven defeats and one draw from their eight outings – losing 1-0 to Scotland at Hampden when the sides met earlier in he qualifying campaign.

Scotland also face Denmark next month in their final qualifying game but will be hoping they have already secured their playoff spot before taking on the runaway group winners.
