Scotland have been undefeated in their last five matches, with two wins and three draws. The Czech Republic have the same number of wins, but have had two losses as well. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
Scotland v Czech Prediction - Preview
Scotland will be entering its first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup. They are currently ranked 44th by FIFA in the world. Managed by Steve Clarke, the players of note include Che Adams (Southampton), Scott McTominay (Man Utd), Kieran Tierney (Arsenal) and Andy Robertson (Liverpool). They qualified for the EURO play-offs after finishing top of their 2018-19 UEFA Nations League group, where they picked up 9 points from 4 matches to win their section. In their latest match (friendly), they beat Luxembourg, 1-0, thanks to Adams’ goal at the 27th minute. Will this momentum continue on into their return to the international stage?
- Scotland’s record in EURO final tournaments is W2 D1 L3.
- Their record at Hampden Park is W135 D63 L60. They are unbeaten in their last six games there (W4 D2).
The Czech Republic have consistently qualified for the Euros since Czechoslovakia split in 1993. They have reached as high as the final in 1996, where they lost to Germany, 2-1. They are seated slightly above the Scots in the FIFA rankings at 40th place. Managed by Jaroslav Šilhavý’, their most notable stars include Tomáš Souček and Vladimir Coufal (West Ham), Patrik Schick (Leverkusen) and Tomáš Vaclík (Sevilla). They acquired 15 points through 5 wins in the qualifying games, which was enough to send them to the tournament proper. Their last match saw them beating Albania in a friendly (3-1), with Schik, Lukáš Masopust and Ondřej Čelůstka (both from Slavia Prague) each contributing a goal. Will their momentum last until their meeting with the Scots?
- Czech Republic/Czechoslovakia have played six games at Hampden Park (D1 L5), with their only draw coming in September 2011.
- They have only won once on Scottish ground – 2-1 at Celtic Park in the Euro qualifiers.
