This is Scotland’s biggest match to date in their bid to reach successive international tournaments and be one of the European sides competing at Qatar 2022.
Austria are the second-place seeds in Group F and the team Scotland circled as the opponents to knock off if they wanted to give themselves a chance of reaching the play-offs, with Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark expected to run away with the group.
A 2-2 draw at Hampden on matchday one was a solid, though slightly underwhelming start, but the opportunity is there to put that right on Tuesday evening if they can get all three points.

- Scotland looking to move into second
It’s all over in Vienna. Scotland have defeated Austria thanks to Lyndon Dykes’ first-half penalty.
Steve Clarke’s side move into second place in the group.
It’s over from Alaba. Just over a minute to go!
Free-kick for Austria right on the edge of the penalty box...
Austria have the ball in the back of the net but it’s a clear offside against Baumgartner who flicks it past Gordon.
Nisbet and Ferguson come on for Adams and Gilmour. Some fresh legs to try and see this out.
Chances at both ends as Gordon makes a huge save from a corner. At the other end Adams goes through on the last defender and flashes a shot past the far post.
O’Donnell is the next Scot to hobble off. He’s to be replaced by Paul McGinn for his first cap.
Little bit of a tense moment as a ball from Alaba goes over the top for Arnautovic. Gordon is able to get to the bouncing ball first and is fouled by the striker.
Dykes hobbles off with an injury. He’s going to be replaced with Christie.
Chance for 2-0 as O’Donnell is played through by Adams. The defender decides to go early and hits a great strike but Bachmann is equal to it.
McGinn flashes a shot over the bar from 20 yards just a few seconds later.
