Group D has the makings of being one of the most exciting groups in the 2020 European Championship and now is the time to bring you our Scotland vs Czech Republic betting tips. This will be the second fixture to be played in Group D and it will take place at Hampden Park, Glasgow. So, if fans are allowed inside the stadium, this could be like a home match for the Scottish team and that must be considered when making Scotland vs Czech Republic tips and predictions. At the time of writing, the odds for this match are the same for Scotland and Czech Republic to win.
Below you will find our complete Scotland vs Czech Republic betting predictions and the latest Scotland vs Czech Republic odds. This may be the opening fixture in the group for both teams but it is hugely significant in terms of which team could progress to the knockout stages, especially with fixtures against England and Croatia to come.
We begin the predictions for Scotland vs Czech Republic with a look at the hosts for this fixture, the Scots. They suffered an extremely disappointing start to their European championship qualifying group, losing to Kazakhstan 3-0 away from home and struggled to get back into contention following that defeat. With Belgium and Russia also in their group, Scotland were always up against it and finished in third place, 9 points behind second place Russia.
England seems to be our destiny and I like the group a lot. The atmosphere at stadiums in England and Scotland is special. I am really looking forward to the challenge. - Ondrej Celustka after groups were drawn, uefa.com
However, the fact they are playing this game at home may be the reason why they are the Scotland vs Czech Republic favourite. Scotland finished second in their 2020/21 Nations League group and that was enough to see them progress to the Euro 2020 play offs. It was a tough road through the play offs and Scotland required extra time and penalties to beat Israel in the semi-final and Serbia in the final.
Interestingly, Scotland defeated Czech Republic both home and away during the 2020/21 Nations League. That is another reason why the betting odds for Scotland vs Czech Republic favour the former.
2. Czech Republic vs Scotland Outsiders
Next in our Scotland vs Czech Republic preview we come to the team who will essentially be playing away from home in this game. Priced as the Scotland vs Czech Republic outsider for this game, Jaroslav Šilhavý well know the dangers of playing Scotland having lost to them twice during the recent Nations League campaign.
Being the Scotland vs Czech Republic underdog will not deter the Czech’s and they know what it takes to beat the top British nations, having defeated England 2-1 at home during the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
However, it is also worth remembering they lost 5-0 against England away from home and this match is going to be like an away fixture, should fans be allowed inside the stadium. Therefore, our Scotland vs Czech Republic betting predictions suggest it is going to be a difficult afternoon for the Czech’s and they may be happy to come away with a point.
We continue our Scotland vs Czech Republic match preview by considering the number of goals we could see in this game. Scotland are a team who struggle to score a lot of goals and it is unlikely that is going to change in this match. Recent fixtures at the time of writing show there have also been few goals in games involving Czech Republic and a good Scotland vs Czech Republic prediction is for there to be under 2.5 goals in this match.
