It’s fast becoming one of the most complicated ends to an international qualifying campaign from memory. But, one thing is for sure, Irish and Welsh Celtic fans will not be cheering on Kieran Tierney, Leigh Griffiths or Callum McGregor.

Saturday’s results have seen Scotland slip into 9th place on the qualifying table. With only eight spots up for grabs, Scotland’s destiny is in their own hands. They just need a win. Wales know if they win they will get through, providing Scotland don’t win by 4 or 5 goals.

Irish fans, however, have got themselves into a bit of a pickle with some poor results in the last few months. They can reach the playoffs – provided they beat Wales and Scotland fail to win in Slovenia, or if Ukraine and Croatia draw.

The top eight will make it to the playoffs. Monday evening should be one of the most anticipated and entertaining ends to a qualifying tournament in recent history with so many teams depending on results going their way. With very few points separating all but the top two this campaign will go down to the final whistle.

  1. Portugal 18

2. Italy 14

3. Sweden 13

4. Denmark 13

5. N Ireland 13

6. Greece 13

7. Wales 11

8. Croatia 11

9. Scotland 11
