This Euro 2020 Tuesday is reserved for football games between national teams in Group D. Scotland is meeting Croatia on the home turf at Hampden Park while the game between the Czech Republic and England takes place at Wembley Stadium. Both matches start at 21:00 CET.
These games end the group phase of the Euro 2020 for these national teams. Let’s see which ones are going to the top 16.
Croatia VS Scotland
Both teams have had a pretty difficult Euro 2020 starts – Croatia lost to England (0:1) and played a draw against Czech Republic (1:1) while Scotland lost to the Czech national team (0:2) but managed to hold their own against England and end the match with a draw (0:0). Given the results, they are currently at the bottom of their group, and landing a win would mean tremendously.
Scotland managed to successfully defend its net in a match against England throughout all 90 minutes but Steve Clarke’s team wasn’t able to score a single goal so far. On the other hand, thanks to experienced Ivan Perisic and his goal during the game with the Czech Republic, Croatia didn’t begin the Euro 2020 with 2 defeats. For the team that played for the World Cup title in the final game with France in 2018, the Croats are not showing in the best of light, to say the least.
Still, Zlatko Dalic’s team has better odds at winning this match if you look at the online sportsbooks. The Stake gives Croatia 2.16 and Scotland 3.30. With the extra motivation both teams have, it will probably be a very exciting match.
Winning Prediction: Croatia 2:1 Scotland
Czech Republic VS England
After 2 played games, both England and Czech Republic have 4 points with one win and one draw. Czechs were able to defeat Scotland and end the game with Croatia with a draw (1:1), although with a bit of VAR controversy. The Three Lions stepped confidently on the pitch for their first tournament game against Croatia and won 1:0 but were unable to do the same when faced with Scots and finished the match with a draw.
If the match between the Czech Republic and England ends in a draw, both will still progress to the knockout stage of Euro 2020. However, English fans are already pretty dissatisfied with the play of their national team against Scotland so a win lifts the mood up for sure. And if it’s to judge by online sportsbooks, England is a definite favorite in this match with 1.54 to win on Gamdom while Czechs are given 7.55 at the moment.
