Barnabas Varga Anytime Goalscorer

Barnabas Varga is the only player to score for Hungary at Euro 2024 so far and the opportunity to support him to strike against Scotland stands out.

The Magyars marksman made the net bulge four times during qualifying and he also bagged a brace during his country’s final friendly fixture before setting off for this summer’s showpiece.

While Varga missed a huge chance to score against Germany last time out, I'm backing him to rediscover his shooting boots against what is a brittle Scottish backline.

Steve Clarke’s side have failed to silence their opponents in 10 of their last 11 matches and Varga is a value option to capitalise on that.

Over 3.5 Cards 

Both sides know it's win or bust in Stuttgart on Sunday night so I’m more than happy to side with over 3.5 cards.

With so much at stake here, we should see a full-blooded affair with plenty of fouls and robust challenges.

Scotland’s curtain-raiser with Germany featured three yellows and one red card, while their subsequent assignment with Switzerland saw five cards dished out.

On top of this, both of Hungary's opening two games of the tournament produced a minimum of four match bookings.

The referee is Facundo Tello, who averaged 5.25 cards per-game across all competitions during the 2023/24 campaign.

Scott McKenna To Be Carded

Scott McKenna is expected to deputise for the injured Kieran Tierney at left-centre back on Sunday night and he looks a strong contender for a card in this crunch clash.

McKenna only featured in the final half-an-hour of Scotland’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland in midweek but still managed to have his name taken by Slovakian referee Ivan Kruzliak.

The Scotland defender has a physical side to his game and a tendency for mistiming a tackle or two, making him an attractive option to go into the book again on Sunday night.
