Scotland vs Czech Republic Prediction and preview
Scotland and the Czech Republic have no chance of unseating England or Croatia from the top two spots, but they will fight for third place, which might see them qualify for the knockout stages. For the first time since the 1998 World Cup, Scotland is back in a major tournament, and three points in front of their home fans will be nothing short of historic for Steve Clarke’s team. Scotland had failed to proceed past the group stage in both of their previous European Championship appearances, despite being undefeated in their two pre-tournament friendlies. Clarke’s team drew 2-2 with the Netherlands before winning 1-0 against the Luxembourg minnows.
After their exploits in 1996, the Czech Republic will compete in Euro 2020 for the seventh time. Jaroslav Silhavy’s squad lost 4-0 to Italy in their first pre-tournament friendly but bounced back with a 3-1 victory against Albania in their second. A win in this match is crucial for both teams if they want to qualify from Group D in third place, and Czech Republic has a history of making deep runs in the knockout stages. In 1996, they reached the championship, in 2004 the semi-final, and in 2012 the quarterfinals. Regardless, Scotland will be favorites at home and will seek to secure the three points on Monday.
