Scotland could play Wales in a playoff to qualify for the World Cup while one of Portugal and Italy won't be in Qatar after they were drawn in the same section...
With Portugal guaranteed a home draw in the final playoff if they get past Turkey, our traders make them 4/5 to qualify for Qatar, with Italy - who they will face if the European champions beat North Macedonia in the semi-final - rated an 11/10 shot.
The draw has been made for the first round of the World Cup play offs.? Betfair (@Betfair) November 26, 2021
Scotland will face Wales if both sides win their ties!
Wales would be the home side should the two sides meet.

Wales have a tough looking semi against Austria before a potential final playoff against either Scotland or Ukraine. Rob Page's men are available at 7/4 to qualify for Qatar with Steve Clarke's troops rated a 3/1 chance. Their opponents are 21/10 and 7/2 respectively.
The other section - or 'Path' - sees Russia take on Poland and Sweden facing the Czech Republic. Our traders expect the Russians (11/5) and Sweden (3/1) to make it through to fight for the final spot.
The semi-finals will be held on Thursday March 24, with the finals taking place five days later on Tuesday March 29.
