Game details

Croatia Scotland

Kick-off: Tuesday, 20:00
Venue: Hampden Park
Coverage: ITV
Croatia Form: WDLLD
Scotland Form: WDWLD
Last Meeting: CRO 0 – 2 SCO
Competition: UEFA Euro 2020

Former World Cup champions Croatia have struggled so far in the competition. After a first-round 1-0 defeat to England, Croatia drew with the Czech Republic 1-1. Despite being buoyed by midfielder Modric, the team haven’t proved themselves to be particularly strong on either end of the field.

Scotland’s Euro 2020 Championship bid so far hasn’t instilled much hope for the team’s future prospects in the tournament. While it’s first game 2-0 loss to Czech Republic dealt a heavy blow, Scotland surprised by drawing 0-0 with England in the second round. This means that Scotland have yet to score once.

This is a must-win game for both teams, with each only having one point on the leaderboard. A draw won’t help either to progress to the next round, so we expect a suspenseful game of football this Tuesday. Based on the recent performances of both teams, we are predicting a Croatian win.

Conclusion & Betting Tips

Based on our previous prediction, we would suggest a moneyline bet on a Croatian victory. This is quite a tight game to call, and both teams haven’t displayed the strongest performances so far. That said, Croatia is the only team to score of the two this Euros, and fared much better against Czech than Scotland did.

It’s likely that both teams will be applying a lot of pressure on both ends, so a 1-0 victory to Croatia seems reasonable. Croatia has scored at least once in each of their last 19 matches, whereas Scotland hasn’t scored once at a major tournmant since 1998.

Based on this same logic, we suggest an under 1.5 goals bet. Neither have been adept at producing goals in recent games, so it’s unlikely that this game will be any different. We would therefore recommend a No bet on both teams to score.

In the result of a draw, both teams will bow out of the tournament, so we are predicting that both teams will fight teeth and nail to win. The odds are fluctuating in the lead up to the match, so we recommend betting with the following bookie to take advantage of top odds offers.
