Hungary Needs a Big Win Too:

Hungary finds themselves in a similar situation, requiring a significant victory to potentially sneak into the next round through the same route.

Scotland’s Bumpy Road:

Scotland’s campaign began with a harsh 5-1 defeat to hosts Germany. They managed a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in their most recent outing, where Scott McTominay’s early goal was cancelled out by Xherdan Shaqiri. However, a significant blow came with Kieran Tierney’s hamstring injury, forcing him to leave the squad. He joins Ryan Porteous, who is suspended, on the sidelines.

Hungary’s Struggles:

Hungary also fell to Germany, losing 2-0 in their previous match. Their hopes depend entirely on securing a win here.

Head-to-Head and Key Numbers:

  • This will be the 10th meeting between the two nations, with all previous encounters being friendlies.
  • The rivalry is quite close historically, with Hungary edging out Scotland 4-3 in wins, with two draws.
  • Six out of their nine meetings have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
  • Scotland has scored in consecutive European Championship matches for the first time. Interestingly, their goal against Germany came courtesy of an Antonio Rüdiger own goal.
  • Hungary is winless in their last eight European Championship outings, with four draws and four losses. They’ve conceded at least twice in six of those matches.

Match Prediction:

Scotland had a promising showing against Switzerland, narrowly missing out on a win after Grant Hanley’s header struck the woodwork. Tierney’s absence and the need to find a replacement will undoubtedly impact their defense. Steve Clark might also opt for a more offensive approach by starting Lawrence Shankland.

Hungary’s poor Euro form continued with their loss to Germany. Despite having shots on target, they couldn’t find the net. Historically, they’ve scored in most of their European Championship matches this century, and they’ll be eager to change their recent fortunes.

While Scotland has the potential to win, the missing key defenders could be a major hurdle. Additionally, fatigue might set in for both sides. Considering these factors and Hungary’s scoring record, a draw seems like the most likely outcome.

Prediction: Scotland 1-1 Hungary
