Germany v Scotland Match Preview & Best Odds


Scotland and Germany fans will be out in force at the Allianz Arena on Friday evening for the opening match in the 2024 European Football Championships, however will there be a shock for the hosts or will the Germans get their campaign off to a positive start?


Modest aspirations

Friday evening sees the curtain raiser for Euro 2024 at the Allianz Arena in Munich as Scotland face hosts Germany in what promises to be a thrilling affair. It’s fair to say that the Scots aren’t being given that much hope in this one and all things considered, their aspirations will be far more modest than those of their Friday-evening opponents.


First hurdle

Scotland bowed out at the very first hurdle in the 1992 and 1996 editions of the tournament after registering just a single group win in each, while they collected just a single point in their Euro 2020 campaign before failing to make it into the World Cup Finals.  Scotland’s qualifying campaign for this tournament was excellent with 2008 and 2012 champions Spain becoming victims of the Scots in a five-game winning run, however they failed to win any of their last three and they arrive in Munich having won just one of their last nine across competitions.


Wind in their sails

Germany’s 2022 World Cup campaign was an unmitigated disaster but they are massive favourites to make it out of a group that also contains Switzerland and Hungary. Following a less than impressive start under Julian Nagelsmann, the host nation take to the field with renewed wind in their sails. Three wins and one draw were the return from Germany’s four friendlies since the start of the year, a run which included wins over Netherlands and France. The Scots will go head-to-head with the hosts with their shackles off and the weight falls very heavily on the home side here. Nevertheless, Scotland have been out of sorts of late and the hosts should have little difficulty in kicking off the tournament with a routine victory.
