Euro 2024 - Group A

Scotland will be rubbing shoulders with the continent’s elite for a second successive European Championships and they won’t be heading to Germany just to make up the numbers.

Steve Clarke’s side qualified for Euro 2024 with room to spare after securing a comfortable second-place finish in their group, and they will now be determined to make a splash on the biggest stage. 

Having claimed a famous scalp with a 2-0 win against Spain during qualifying, Scotland certainly won't be fazed by the challenges that lie ahead in Group A, where they will come up against Germany, Switzerland and Hungary.

Scotland Euro 2024 Predictions

In their previous three appearances at the Euros, Scotland have fallen at the group-stage hurdle, so they will be desperately seeking to reach the knockout stage for the first time in their history.

While Clarke’s side impressed en-route to Euro 2024, recent performances would suggest that they will need to be on-guard to avoid yet another early exit.

Since rubber-stamping their ticket to this summer’s showpiece, Scotland’s momentum has stalled somewhat, with the Tartan Army triumphing in just one of their last nine outings.  

That solitary success was against international minnows Gibraltar, suggesting the Scots will have to swiftly rediscover the form they showed during the early stages of qualifying if they are to break new ground by reaching the round of 16.

Scotland Euro 2024 Tips

Scotland Stage of Elimination - Group Stage @ 10/11 bet365 

Scotland’s form in the lead up to Euro 2024 has left them looking vulnerable in their quest to qualify from Group A.

To make matters worse, injuries to key players has made an already tough task even tougher for the Tartan Army.

As such, Clarke’s side are 7/5 favourites on Paddy Power to pick up the Group A wooden spoon, though I would be more inclined to opt for a nice slice of insurance by siding with Scotland not to qualify at 10/11 on bet365.

Scotland Exact Group Points - 1 Point  @ 7/2 bet365

Scotland picked up one point from a possible nine in the group stages of Euro 2020 and siding with a repeat this summer looks worthy of interest at 7/2 on bet365.

Germany are the clear favourites to collect maximum points in the tournament curtain-raiser and a pair of stern tests will then follow for the Scots against both Switzerland and Hungary.

While Steve Clarke’s side will have earmarked their final two group games for picking up points, Scotland are not as streetwise on the major tournament stage as both the Swiss and Hungarians, and that could be their undoing.
