On November 19, the 10th round of qualifying for Euro 2024 will take place at Hampden Park (Glasgow), in which the Scottish national team will meet with the Norwegian national team. The match will begin at 21:45 Kyiv time.
After a long break, the team was able to gradually reach a decent position. At first there was success in the League of Nations, in Division C, but this is what made it possible, taking advantage of the new loophole, to win the play-offs and qualify for Euro 2020, which was the first tournament in a couple of decades. Then there was the controversial last year, with a lost playoff for the World Cup, but with revenge from the Ukrainians in the dispute for 1st place in the Nations League group, already at a higher level. Well, in 2023, the tartans started with 5 victories, including over Spain. This, in fact, guaranteed Steve Clarke’s players the right to go to the second Euro in a row… And it relaxed them – they suffered defeats, to England and France in friendly matches, and to Spain in the qualifying round. We could have lost against Georgia too, but in the very end we scored 2-2.
The national team is increasingly raising questions. The scale of their stars is now clearly larger and brighter than those of the same highlanders – suffice it to say that Erling Holland in the last voting for the Ballon d’Or was second only to Messi, the winner. But if the striker won everything with the club, Manchester City, then this is not the first indistinct cycle in the national team. In fact, they put an end to 2023 after the starting period, when they lost to both competitors, Spain and Scotland (also at home, 1-2), and also without defeating Georgia. Subsequent victories did not really give anything, especially since October ended 0-1 with Fury Roja. As a result, we can prepare for next year, and it was not in vain that we decided to hold a friendly match with the Faroe Islands, scoring a grandmaster 2-0 there.
Statistics of personal meetings
Norway won only 1 head-to-head match out of the last 5, but immediately 4-0. The Scots took their third victory in this period in June 2-1.
Bookmakers believe that the Scots can win in front of their home fans. But the lack of motivation can affect itself again, so we bet on the total over 2.0 goals (odds – 1.61).
