Serbia is hosting Scotland at Rajko Mitic Stadium in the final game of the Euro Cup qualification playoffs.
It looks like none of the teams that are playing in these playoffs is doing well, and Serbia is not an exception. Serbia has 2 losses and 2 draws in the Nations League so far, and their only win was against Norway in the Euro Cup qualification playoffs against Norway on the road, after the extra time. In their last Nations League game against Turkey on the road, Serbia has had 46% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. This was an exciting game where Serbia had a 0-2 lead in the 49th minute, but Turkey was able to get back with 2 goals in the second half. The final score of this game was 2-2. Mitrovic has scored 10 goals for Serbia in these Euro Cup qualifications, while Milinkovic-Savic added 8 goals, and both of them are expected to be in the starting lineup in this important game for Serbia. There is a lot of talent in this Serbia team, and I mean a lot, but their form has been shaky, and we are yet to see if Serbia will step up in the most important game this year.
Scotland looks fantastic, and they have won 7 of their last 8 games, while 1 game ended in a draw. Even though a few of Scotland’s opponents have been bad teams, this run is impressive. In their last two Nations League games, Scotland has 2 wins, and they have scored 2 goals while conceding 0 goals. Scotland is at the top of their Nations League group with 10 points. Scotland has reached this final game by beating Israel in the playoffs after the penalty shootout. In their latest Nations League game against the Czech Republic at home, Scotland has had only 31% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and low 62% of the correct passes. Despite being the weaker team in this game, Scotland was able to score an early goal in the 6th minute, and the result hasn’t changed again. Scotland has won this match 1-0. McGinn is the leading goalscorer for Scotland in these Euro Cup qualifications with 7 goals. Scotland has a few good players from the EPL, and they are in fantastic form, but more importantly, their defense is doing well as of late. Scotland certainly has the quality to get to the Euro Cup, but I think the pressure might get to them, and I think Scotland might crack under that pressure.
Serbia and Scotland have played 2 times against each other in the past, and Serbia has won 1 game while the other one ended in a draw. I think Serbia has more quality here, especially in the attacking end, and because they are playing at home, I will take Serbia here.
