Spain v Scotland Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Spain will be eager to avenge their defeat to the Scots earlier in the qualifying campaign when the two sides lock horns at the Estadio Olympic de Sevilla on Thursday evening.

Spain suffered a shock 2-0 defeat to Scotland at Hampden Park in the second round of Euro 2024 qualifying games with Scott McTominay bagging a brace, a disappointing outcome for La Roja manager Luis de la Fuente in his second game in charge. They have nevertheless bounced back by putting together a four-game winning run across two competitions, in the process clinching the UEFA Nations League trophy, a 2-1 victory over Italy in the last four of that tournament being followed by a penalty shoot-out triumph over Croatia in the Nation League final. Since then they have convincingly beaten Georgia (7-1) and Cyprus (6-0) in the Euro 2024 qualifiers and will be confident of narrowing the gap between themselves and Group A leaders Scotland this week.

Scotland are sitting pretty at the summit of the group with wins in each of their five games thus far, clearly the most notable result being the 2-0 victory over Spain. While they will still be basking in the glory of that result, they have since enjoyed further wins over Norway, Georgia and Cyprus and they are now on the verge of qualifying for the group stages of next summer’s European Championships for the second time in succession.

Indeed, the Scots are undefeated in their last nine outings across competitions and should they avoid defeat on Thursday evening, then their place in Euro 2024 will be assured. The Scots will also finish top of the group should they collect six points from their final three matches, something which is achievable given their form thus far.

Scotland’s fearless approach has rewarded them with an enviable position at the top of their qualifying group and they will be optimistic ahead of this clash, however while Spain will be without a number of key players, they still possess plenty of firepower and it seems a tall order for the Scots to repeat their famous triumph over Spain earlier this year by taking any points here.
