Their poor form in front of goal is shown up by the fact they have only scored 16 goals in 10 matches. This gives them a total of 1.60 goals per game. This is not a good enough record to provide the level of success that was expected at the start of the season.
They aren’t having much luck defensively either. Currently Scotland have let in 19 goals. This is far too many for a team with their aspirations, and when you consider that they have conceded this many in just 10 games it shows why they have struggled this season. They have conceded 1.90 goals per game. Unless they manage to stop the flow of goals going the wrong way, they are unlikely to be able to turn their season around.
With just 5 games won this season out of their 10 games played, their poor showing up front and at the back has caused them to be on a dismal run of form. Their win percentage for the season is just 50.00% and this is definitely not acceptable to Scotland’s fanbase.
However, they have managed to win 3 games in their last five games. This does show that they have the ability to turn their season around. If they can keep up this run of form then they could well achieve what they set out to achieve at the start of the season.
Overall, all of these factors have come together to cause Scotland to have a much less impressive season than they expected at the start of the season.
