Euro 2024: Germany v Scotland - Match Preview & Odds

The European Championships will get underway on Friday evening as hosts Germany take on Scotland in Group A in Munich. Here at we will preview every game at this summer’s tournament and our Germany v Scotland preview includes the latest team news, match insights and betting tips as well as the best match odds and free bet offers from our partners at Ladbrokes.


Euro 2024 has come at the perfect time for Germany as the hosts have built up some real momentum under Julian Nagelsmann. Germany head into Friday’s fixture on the back of three wins and a draw in four friendly matches against France (2-0), Netherlands (2-1), Ukraine (0-0) and Greece (2-1) so far this year.

In contrast, Scotland have struggled in recent internationals. Their 2-0 win at Gibraltar last week was their only win in nine internationals. Steve Clarke’s side have struggled defensively during that run of games, conceding 21 goals in those nine matches.

Germany v Scotland: Head-to-Head

Scotland have won four of their 17 international matches against Germany however, they have never beaten Friday’s opponents in a competitive international. Excluding friendlies, these two nations have met on eight occasions; Germany have six wins and the other two matches have ended all-square. The most recent international fixture played between Germany and Scotland ended 3-2 to the Germans at Hampden Park in September 2015.

Betting Tips

Whilst Germany head into Friday’s fixture as red-hot favourites, the hosts have not played a competitive international since the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Germany may take a while to warm into the opening match of Euro 2024 and we therefore like the 6/4 on offer for the match to be level at half-time.

Scotland's last eight goals (excluding own goals) have been scored by seven different players. The lack of an out and out goalscorer could be their undoing on Friday. Germany to win to nil is outstanding value at 10/11.

Niclas Fullkrug has emerged as Germany’s first-choice centre forward and is perhaps somewhat overlooked in the Golden Boot betting. The Borussia Dortmund forward has scored eleven goals in sixteen internationals and will pose a real threat to Scotland on Friday evening. Below are various Fullkrug-related betting options to consider.
