EURO 2024 Predictions: Germany – Scotland (14-06-2024)

The long-awaited European Football Championship kicks off on 14 June. On this day, there will be just one opening match between Germany and Scotland.

The Germans, playing at home, are the clear favourites in Group A, but it won’t be easy, as in addition to Scotland, there are matches against Hungary and Switzerland.

Match prediction: Germany -1.5 AH @ 1.85

Germany has not been performing well in international tournaments recently, not even making it out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup group.

This tournament is a great opportunity to remind yourself and return to the elite among your home crowd. The schedule is very favourable for the Germans, with the first match against the weakest opponent in the group, and we must take advantage of this.

Julian Nagelsmann, in the face of tough choices, had to make some decisions that may not have been popular. However, there’s no denying the immense pressure he’s under and the burning desire to deliver the best possible performance for his home country in this tournament.

Players such as Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule, Emre Can, Karim Adeyemi, Leon Goretzka, and Marco Reus have been left behind.

The last time Germany and Scotland played each other was almost ten years ago, on 7 September 2015, when the Germans won 3-2 in the qualification for the European Championship. The last meeting won’t impact the upcoming matches, so we can look at the teams’ recent results together.

Germany has played four friendlies ahead of EURO 2024, winning three against France, the Netherlands, and Greece.

Scotland also played four games, losing 0:4 to the Netherlands, 0:1 to Northern Ireland, and won 2:0 against Gibraltar. Against Finland, the match ended in a draw – 2:2. The results did not look convincing, and the start of EURO 2024 could be very difficult.

If we look back at previous tournaments, the opening matches were Italy 3-0 Turkey, France 2-1 Romania. World Cups: Qatar 0:2 Ecuador, Russia 5:0 Saudi Arabia, Brazil 3:1 Croatia.

The results are in favour of the hosts; only Qatar has not won an opening match in the last five major football tournaments. Germany is the favourite, and a two-goal lead certainly does not seem impossible.

The opening of the tournament, the home crowd, the motivation of the footballers – all this should lead to a relatively easy victory.
