Scotland have been in really good form in recent months leading up to the EUROs. They will now have a tough time qualifying from a group that also features England, Croatia and the Czech Republic, but they have shown true grit lately.
The Czech Republic are a fresh side that has caused problems to teams that are much better than Scotland and will fancy their qualifying chances from this group.
Scotland did not do a very good job in the EURO Qualifiers, where they had 5 wins and 5 losses and finished at the 3rd spot of the group, behind Russia and Belgium.
However, they managed to grab a wild-card to the EUROs through the Nations League, where they beat both Israel and Serbia in the penalty shoot-outs.
They were quite solid in the Nations League but finished at the 2nd spot of their group that also featured the Czech Republic (whom they will face again in the EUROs), Israel and Slovakia.
Scotland won both matches against the Czech Republic in the Nations League, by 2-1 on the road and by 1-0 at home. Scotland also made a great start in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, with a couple of draws against Austria and Israel and a win against the Faroe Islands. They are now sitting at the 2nd spot of that group and have the 2nd best defense.
The Czech Republic did a fine job in the EURO 2020 Qualifiers, in a group that also featured England, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro.
They finished at the 2nd spot of the group with 15 points (5 wins, 3 losses) and grabbed a ticket to the EUROs.
After that they did a solid job in the UEFA Nations League, where they finished at the top of the group that also featured Scotland, Israel and Slovakia. They had 4 wins, 2 losses and 0 draws, scoring 9 goals and conceding just 5 in the process.
The resurgence of the Czech Republic continued in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, where they started off with a massive 6-2 win against Estonia and followed that up with a 1-1 draw against the mighty Belgium, before losing to Wales by 1-0 in a very tough match.
Scotland vs Czech Republic Prediction:
Scotland managed to beat the Czech Republic in both matches when the two teams met in the Nations League last year. They did win by 1-0 at home and by 2-1 on the road, but the Czech Republic were really strong in both matches, at least offensively.
Scotland don’t need many scoring chances in order to score, and they play a very physical game. However, it’s the Czech Republic that have a great generation of players that are scattered throughout Europe’s biggest leagues.
This match can really go either way, but the Czech Republic should have the upper hand given the amount of talent in their squad. England beat Croatia in the other match of the group, so whoever wins this match is going to sit at one of the two top spots of the group. Taking the Over 2 Goals here.
