14/06: Germany vs Scotland-Euros

Betting Predictions

Fans will rush to Munich’s Allianz Arena on Friday for the eagerly awaited Euro 2024 opening, which pits hosts Germany against Scotland in the competition’s Group A.

Die Mannschaft, still awaiting their maiden trip to the knockout phase under Steve Clarke, see the home Euros as a golden opportunity to make up for some previous setbacks.

Head-to-Head

This upcoming match will mark the 14th time that Scotland has played in Germany, having already faced Germany, West Germany, East Germany, and three games during the 1974 World Cup. Their only victory came in 1999.

Ten years have passed since their last meeting, in Dortmund, where a double from Thomas Muller defeated the Scots 2-1.

Team News

Aleksandar Pavlovic, a 20-year-old midfielder for Bayern Munich, was forced to withdraw from the team due to tonsillitis, joining the likes of Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry, and Timo Werner who were all left off the roster for different reasons.

Although Emre Can of Borussia Dortmund has been nominated to take his place, Nagelsmann will likely go with a double pivot featuring retiring Toni Kroos in the center and Robert Andrich, the lynchpin of Bayer Leverkusen.

Ilkay Gundogan should wear the captain’s armband from the number 10 spot thanks to Kroos and Andrich’s partnership. However, Nagelsmann still faces some difficulties in attack as Niclas Fullkrug and Kai Havertz battle to lead the charge while Leroy Sane and Florian Wirtz vie for position out wide.

On the other hand, Scotland was among the nations that suffered terrible injuries earlier this month when Lyndon Dykes, a striker for Queens Park Rangers, had to withdraw from the team due to an ankle injury he suffered during practice, leaving the visitors without their main man.

Although he was a surprise call-up in the first place and has been dealing with a knee injury since December, Liverpool winger Ben Doak also withdrew, and Rangers’ John Souttar and seasoned goalkeeper Craig Gordon were the unfortunate players to leave the squad when Clarke reduced his roster to 26.

Probable Line-Up

Germany XI:

Neuer; Kimmich, Tah, Rudiger, Mittelstadt; Kroos, Andrich; Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz; Havertz

Scotland XI:  

Gunn; Hendry, Hanley, Tierney; Ralston, McTominay, Gilmour, Robertson; McGinn, Christie; Shankland

Verdict

Tip: Germany to Win

Reason

The host nation benefits from a partisan home crowd in Munich, home advantage and a Scotland team in a poor run of form. Having gone unbeaten in their last four, winning three, and long overdue an impressive performance at a major finals, the data strongly suggests Germany will be good for the win here. Add to that Germany scoring several early goals in recent games

Tip: BTTS (YES)

Reason

Scotland head to Germany having won once across their last nine games, and that was a 2-0 victory over Gibraltar. In that stretch, they’ve conceded twice or more on seven occasions, so Steve Clarke’s side have their own suspect defensive record.

The absence of Aaron Hickey and Nathan Patterson – their two first-choice right-backs – will surely be felt at this level. That leaves Celtic’s Anthony Ralston matching up with Florian Wirtz.
