It is a fresh start for Scotland as they took on a vastly improved Netherlands side under the tutelage of Dick Advocaat.

 

Scotland had a rampant run at the end of the World Cup qualification campaign and narrowly missed out on the play-off with the 2-2 draw against Slovenia on the final match-day. They finished with a five match unbeaten streak and produced some memorable comebacks during the course.

 

Just short after the exit, the team part way with the long standing manager Gordon Strachan….

Venue: Stadio San Paolo.

 

Napoli’s Champions League destiny might well depend on the success in this particular fixture.

 

The potential defeat, combined with Shakhtar’s expected victory over the rock-bottomed Feyenoord, would push the Ukrainians on a six-point gap ahead of the final two matches of the campaign.

Tottenham finally find the rhythm at Wembley with a 4-1 win over Liverpool on the weekend. Despite the team losing just 1 of their 7 games at this stadium this season, the performances were underwhelming. The likes of Burnley and Swansea had left with points. But things are looking bright after a thumping win over a team like Liverpool.

The wobbling Chelsea finally managed to get back to winning ways on the weekend. But once again, they were far from convincing. The were trailing Watford 2-1 and could have went further behind if not for some wasted chances. It was three goals at the death that helped them get back with a good looking 4-2 score-line.
