The Spanish will be looking to exact revenge when Spain and Scotland square off in a Euro 2024 qualifying match on Thursday night at Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville. Scott McTominay scored two goals to help the Tartan Army defeat La Roja 2-0 at Hampden Park on matchday two earlier this year.
Spain vs Scotland
Spain was held down by Scotland, but in their final two Group A games, they have found their rhythm. Not only have they won both games, but they have also scored 13 goals in total while only giving up one goal. Spain has won three of their last four games and is unbeaten going into this one against Scotland. They defeated Cyprus 6-0 in their most recent encounter to record their second straight clean sheet in three games.
Spain has a strong record in home-based Euro qualifying going into this match. In their last 24 home Euro qualifying games, they have won all of them. This streak, dating back to 2003, is the longest in the history of Euro qualification.
Thus far in these qualifiers, Scotland has had an undefeated record. They will guarantee their spot in the Euro 2024 finals with one more victory. Steve Clark intends to assign his charges to do that. They won the rematch 2-0 at home, but they will be aware that this is a more difficult task.
La Roja may have been preoccupied with their preparations for the Nations League finals during their last victory against Spain. The fact that they went on to win it and will be more concentrated here should worry the Scots. The Scotland vs. Norway match will also be crucial to their chances. Scotland will qualify regardless of the result if Norway loses.
September saw Spain win 6-0 against Cyprus and 7-1 against Georgia, following their success in the UEFA Nations League. Next month, the Spanish aim to make a comeback and guarantee their place in Euro 2024. The visitors come into match having won their five away qualifiers and scored in 10 of their previous 11 games.
The Scots may have been humbled by England last time out but have a different energy about them in the qualifiers. The team led by Steve Clarke also boasts Man United’s weekend hero, Scott McTominay, who has excelled this season. The midfielder has scored six goals in four of their five games.
You can back Spain to win this game because they will be very motivated to exact revenge for the shocking 0-2 loss that occurred on Scottish soil. They have the home-court advantage and the quality on their side, so we can expect them to win easily on Thursday.
