Playing their opening match at home, Scotland hoping to grab all points
Scotland will hope they will take advantage of playing at home and get the three points from this match. With the best six third-placed teams from the eight groups to qualify to the second round, and the fact that England and Croatia are expected to finish in the top two positions, hence the importance of this game in the battle for third place in Group D.
It has been a 23-year wait for the Scots to qualify for a major tournament. Their last appearance was in the 1998 World cup in France. With players like Kieran Tierney, Scott McTominay, Andrew Robertson, and others who play in the English Premier League, coach Steve Clarke will be relying on them to help the team in their Euro campaign.
Scotland key stats
- Scotland have won their last three matches against the Czech republic
- In their last three competitive matches, Scotland have scored over 1.5 goals
- Scotland are undefeated in all of their last five matches
A Crucial match for the Czech Republic’s ambitions of reaching the second round
The Czech Republic will also have their eyes on a victory in this match against a Scotland side who are supposed to be the side the Czechs have a chance of beating in Group D. After losing the 1996 final against Germany in Wembley, the Czechs have featured in every Euro since then.
The generation of 1996 which included players like Poborsky, Berger, and Nedved wasn’t repeated in the Czech Republic’s national team, and despite playing in all the finals since 1996, their best result ever since was reaching the semi-finals in 2004 in Portugal.
Czech Republic key stats
- The Czech Republic have won one of their last three competitive games
- Two wins in all of their last five matches have been the outcome of the Czech team
- In four of their last five matches, over 1.5 goals have been scored
- In their last match against Scotland, the Czech’s had 68% ball possession
Scotland vs Czech Republic Prediction
Both teams will take this match as their chance to qualify for the next round. A win here and probably a draw against any one of England and Croatia may rank them as one of the best sic third-placed teams.
Scotland have a commanding record of winning 75% of their matches at Hampden Park and will look to improve that record in this match. The Czechs don’t have well-known players playing in leading European teams but they dominated their last match against Scotland.
We think both teams will play to win and we might see some goals in this one.
