Wales and Scotland meet in the 2020 Six Nations at the Principality Stadium on Saturday afternoon. With the title out of reach for both teams they are fighting it out for fourth position while Scotland could end third depending on other results. 

Scotland come into this match off an impressive set of results and should push Wales all the way in Cardiff.

Wales Form


Wales have had a poor 2020 Six Nations thus far with one win in their four matches. That victory came on the opening weekend against Italy.

Since that victory Wales have lost 24-14 away to Ireland, 27-23 at home against France and 33-30 against England away. That said, the matches have all been pretty tight and losing away to Ireland and England is hardly a disaster.

Last weekend Wales lost 38-21 against France in an international friendly.  It was Wales’ first match together since rugby came to a crashing halt due to COVID-19.

Wales News


Wales have very few injury concerns with Liam Williams fit and ready for the weekend. Rhys Patchell is likely to get the nod at fly-half with try-scoring machine, Josh Adams an automatic selection on the wing.

Scotland Form


Scotland are currently fourth in on the Six Nations table with one match to play. Victory over Wales will certainly mean a successful Six Nations campaign for the Scots.

Scotland began their Six Nations campaign with two successive defeats – first they lost 19-12 in Ireland and then 13-6 at home to England. That was followed by a 17-0 win over Italy away before surprising France in a 28-17 win at Murrayfield.

In a friendly last weekend Scotland beat Georgia 47-7. While not the most glamorous opposition, Georgia offered Scotland a stern test, especially in the forward pack. This will stand the Scots in good stead going into this fixture against Wales.

Scotland News


Captain Stuart Hogg should make his return to the side after missing the victory over Georgia as he was on club duty of Exeter. Fly-half Finn Russell could start after he was dropped earlier this year for disciplinary reasons.

Wales vs Scotland Head to Head


Wales have won 13 of their last 14 matches against Scotland with the last match ending 18-11 in favour of Wales in the 2019 Six Nations at Murrayfield.

Wales vs Scotland Odds


Wales are priced as favourites at 1.40 with Scotland paying 3.00 with bet365. A draw will pay 26.00.

The handicap is set at 6 points.

Wales vs Scotland Match Up


Regardless of the weather this is expected to be a tight, forward dominated contest. Both teams only have one match under the belt although players have been playing club rugby. This could lead to a very stop-start match with many set pieces, which strangely enough suits both teams.

  • Wales have won 13 of their last 14 matches against Scotland.
  • Wales have lost 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • Wales lost their last home match against France.
