Game details

Scotland Czech Republic

Kick-off: Monday, 14:00

Last Meeting: SCO 1 – 0 CZE
Competition: UEFA Euro 2020

Scotland’s qualification for the Euro 2020 Championship has been a long time coming, and this year marks the 25th year since they last qualified. Scotland finished third in their qualifying group behind Belgium and Russia, and entered the tournament after success in the play-offs. Scotland is seen as the underdogs of Group D.

The Czech Republic has also had quite an inconsistent run on the road to the Euros. The team finished second behind England in Group A and even managed to beat England once before a brutal defeat. The team seem to struggle with away matches, having lost three of four recent on-the-road games.

The teams have faced each other nine times over the last 20 years, and the teams both have four wins and a draw to their names. However, Scotland has won the previous three matches, including a 1-0 win in the Nations League in October 2020. This has bookies confident of a tight Scottish win.

Conclusion & Betting Tips

Despite the fact that Scotland has consistently been successful against the Czech Republic, this is a tough game to call. Considering Scotland’s home game advantage and the Czech’s poor history at playing home games, we think that a 1-0 Scotland victory is a reasonable prediction.

Neither teams have been big scorers of a late, and the close match-up indicates that the game will produce under 2.5 goals. Four of the team’s last six showdowns have produced under 2.5 goals, and neither has been a particularly heavy-hitter against strong opponents in warm-up matches.

Another reasonable bet would be that Scotland’s Andy Robertson will be carded. The left-back has received 10 cautions in Champions League and international games. For any time goal scorer, Scotland’s John McGinn proved himself as Scotland’s top goalscorer in the qualifiers, with 7 goals to his name.

Beyond this match, it would be fair to predict that either team will qualify for the top 16. From there though, the teams will be facing tough competition and we can’t predict either going to the quarter-finals. Just make sure you make your bets before it’s too late.
