Euro Predictions 2024 | Germany vs Scotland

Match Prediction: Germany vs Scotland UEFA European championship 2024

The European Championships 2024 commences with the hosts, Germany, facing off against Scotland, a team that has earned its place in the European championships after a commendable performance in their qualifying group. Germany’s new generation of players carries the weight of high expectations following some disappointing previous tournaments. However, they must not overlook the challenge posed by their group, which includes Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland, all formidable opponents.

While Germany may be favoured for a top-two finish, the past has shown that underestimating any opponent in this championship could come back to haunt you.




How did they qualify?

Germany's qualification for the tournament was automatic, given their role as hosts. Instead of playing qualifiers, they played in a series of friendlies, yielding mixed results. While these outcomes may not be indicative of their true potential, they now face their real test as they strive to secure their first European championship title since 1996.

Scotland's path to qualification was a different tale. They secured their spot by finishing second in a group dominated by Spain. However, Scotland was the only team to defeat the group winners and win their first five games, so qualification was never in doubt, eventually finishing six points ahead of third-placed Norway.

Team Analysis

Germany has always been known as a team that performs as a sum of all its parts rather than depending on star players. This current German team is balanced with professional players across top European championship leagues. Players like Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, and Kai Havertz are all in fine form and will be looking to use their talents to help their national team.

Scotland also has a relatively balanced team, but some players stand out as superstars in their lineup. Scotland’s goal threat can come from any position on their team, and they do not always rely on their offence for a goal.

Players to watch

Several German players have performed exceptionally well for their clubs this season. While there are a few who can make a difference, we have selected one who has played a huge role at the domestic level this season.

  • Florian Wirtz: The 21-year-old is one of the most valuable talents in Germany, and he has helped his team to a historic season that their fans will look back on in the future.

Scotland have a formidable squad with fewer talented players than the Germans, but it's clear who the standout man was from the qualifiers.

  • Scott McTominay: Scotland's standout player and top scorer in the qualifiers, Scott McTominay, is known as a defensive midfielder but has seen returns a forward would be proud of. At the end of the qualifiers, he was his team's top scorer with seven goals and helped his team with important goals at crucial stages of the games he played in.


While Scotland is determined to make it far into the tournament, most football fans would clearly back Germany in this tie. Germany is a much more stable team now with its lineup and is the record holder of this competition with three tournament wins. The German people have high expectations from their team on home soil, and they are expected to start the tournament with dominant form right from the first game.
