Scotland vs Czech Republic: the recent form of both teams:
Steve Clarke’s side has done quite well in recent times going unbeaten in their last five games. This is Scotland’s first major international tournament since the 1998 World cup and they will look to make the most out of this opportunity. Scotland qualified for Euro 2020 on the back of penalty-shootout victories over Israel and Serbia in the semi-finals and final of the playoffs.

On the other hand, Jaroslav Silhavy’s side suffered a 4-0 defeat to Italy in their first pre-tournament friendly. Although the Czech Republic managed to return to winning ways defeating Albania 3-1, they can’t afford a slip up in the group stages. The Czech Republic has seen a glimpse of success finishing runners-up to Germany at Euro 1996, a semi-final run and a quarter-final run in 2004 and 2012 respectively. The last two matches are against England and Croatia so they have to win against Scotland if they aim to qualify for the knockouts.
