Scotland vs Spain Betting Analysis
Two of the early Group A leaders clash on Tuesday night over in Glasgow as both Spain and Scotland came off dominating 3-0 victories in their opening matchups to kick off their European campaign.
John McGinn and Scott McTominay combined for the Scots on Friday as they overcame a determined effort from Cyprus, while Spain enjoyed a very similar display against Norway in their first game.
The Spain team also put some padding on the scoreline with two late goals from Espanyol substitute Joselu in the 84th and 85th minutes.
These two teams have clashed only once in this venue over the last two decades, with Spain coming out on top 3-2 in Scotland back in 2010 after their recent World Cup triumph.
No Problems For Spanish Offense
Despite having to wait until late in the game to finally put Norway to bed over the weekend, Spain have certainly not been found wanting in front of goals across recent campaigns.
An early Round of 16 exit at the hands of Morocco in the recent World Cup didn’t stop Spain from ranking 6th on total scoring in that tournament, and the Spanish have also found the back of the net in every single one of their last 18 away Euro qualifying matchups as well.
Scotland’s Struggles Against Elite Teams
Scotland are in some solid form heading into this matchup themselves, losing just twice at home going all the way back to 2019 (W12, D4, L2), so will feel optimistic about limiting the Spanish in this one.
However, Scotland have also struggled against the cream of world football over recent years, not having gained a win against a current top-ten FIFA-ranked side since 2013.
Scotland vs Spain Expert Prediction
Spanish boss Luis de la Fuente will no doubt be a little concerned by the number of chances his side gave up to Norway at the weekend, and are probably a little fortunate Manchester City target man Erling Haaland wasn’t available for the Norwegians in that game.
While Scotland don’t have anyone on their roster that can compare to the likes of Haaland, they can score, netting in nine straight games at home and scoring an average of 2.0 goals per game across those nine matchups as well.
While Spain no doubt represent Scotland’s toughest test to date across that recent home run, the Scots certainly have the capability to find the back of the net at least once in this game and we like the Scotland Exact Team Total Goals – 1 prop on Tuesday in their Euro 2024 qualifier against Spain in Hampden Park.
Prediction: Scotland – Exact Team Total Goals – 1 (+120)
