Euro 2021 Prediction: Scotland vs Croatia

  • Scotland are undefeated in their last 6 matches against Croatia in all competitions.
  • No qualified side conceded more goals than Croatia between the 2018 World Cup and now.

Euro 2020 Prediction: Duje Caleta-Car to be carded

This is a crucial clash for both sides with only a win sufficing for the pair, someone and possibly both could miss out of qualification to the round of 16. With so much at stake it should be a nailbiting affair at Hampden Park and any goal could really swing the game back and forth.

Scotland were well set up against England, kudos to Steve Clarke for bouncing back after a difficult opener against the Czech Republic. They looked much harder to create against but they are still yet to score this summer, that’ll simply have to change here. They are in luck given their opponents, Croatia, have been terrible in their attempts to keep clean sheets for a couple of years now.

Che Adams should get the nod over Lyndon Dykes up front but more support is needed for whoever does start up top, creativity could come in the form of Ryan Fraser or John McGinn. Alternatively both Dykes and Adams could start to really put the pressure on cumbersome duo Domagoj Vida and Duje Caleta-Car. The latter was booked against England and I’m happy to put him up again at generous 5/1 quotes given the physical nature of his opponents.

Euro 2020 Prediction: Both Teams to Score

They do still pose a threat in attacking areas though so the 19/20 on both teams to score looks a good way to attack what should be a great game to view.
