It’s game one for the Tartan Army as they make their long awaited return to a major tournament. After England’s win against Croatia, 3 points here for either side could already give them a massive chance of qualifying; given that 4 sides will make it through as 3rd placed finishers. A win here and a point from the remaining 2 games would effectively guarantee a path to the next round.
Some real quality set to line up for Scotland. Tierney and Robertson give them a very strong left hand side and with McGinn and McTominay in midfield, there’s plenty of creativity as well as more than enough bite to deal with a robust Czech side. Che Adams will be a real threat up top, he’s been a huge addition since switching allegiance on account of his Scottish Grandmother.
Two real men to watch for the visitors; firstly big Tomas Soucek who was West Ham’s joint top scorer this season. He’s a huge part of this squad and was their joint top scorer across the qualifiers/Nations League. Leverkusen striker Patrick Schick is the focal point in the attack, he’ll look to exploit any space behind Scotland’s centre-halves.
Scotland: Marshall, O’Donnell, Hendry, Hanley, Tierney, Roberston, McGregor, McGinn, McTominay, Adams, Dykes
Czech Republic: Vaclik, Boril, Kalas, Celustka, Coufal, Soucek, Kral, Jantko, Darida, Masopust, Schick
Shots & shots on target predictions
This will all be about the names I’ve mentioned already. We’ll start with John McGinn, he’s actually good value for a shot/shot on target at Villa as he’s always keen to take a strike on from range but he plays much further forward for Scotland which makes him a whole different prospect. He averages 2.27 shots per game for the National team. Expect to see him in and around the box and breaking the lines, more like a 10 or even a shadow striker than a centre mid.
On to the Czech’s and of course, Tomas Soucek is worth watching. 1.2 for a shot and 2.0 to hit the target looks fantastic. He bagged 10 goals for West Ham this season and is the main man for his national team these days. He’s also a huge aerial threat, at 6”4 and in a side that tends to get plenty of corners that are a fantastic recipe for any shots bets.
Finally is Patrick Schick, he’s 1.5 to hit the target in this one. He averages a mammoth 1.79 on target per game and almost 4 attempts on goal per match for the Czech’s. He’s their out and out number 9 with support from wingers he should be in the thick of it against Scotland.
I should’ve made this just a Soucek and McGinn predictions article as the two combative midfielders again top the charts when it comes to bookings. McGinn was booked 14 times for Villa this season and no West Ham player was carded more than Soucek.
Both commit around 2 fouls per game and are the favourites for a booking. 3.25 for McGinn & 3.75 for Soucek, I think this could be a real midfield battle and these two will probably be in the wars with one another.
Tough one this but I’m going to side with the neighbours here. I fancy Scotland to make it out of the group and this is the most winnable game, 3 points here is vital and I they have the edge on quality in my opinion.
Outside of Soucek and maybe Schick I don’t think man-for-man the Czech’s can match up. Scotland also won the last two meetings in 2020, they finished 2-1 and 1-0. I’m going for a 1-0 Scotland win here, I’m sure that’ll keep plenty of you happy.
