Germany vs Scotland  Predictions


Germany have shown strength against some tough opponents under Julian Nagelsmann and the Nationaelf score goals. Scotland were unconvincing in warm-up friendlies against lower-ranked opponents and a German handicap is anticipated in this Euros opener.

Head to Head


Germany have a 7-1 advantage against Scotland in 10 meetings with two draws.

Germany Form


Germany head into Euro 2024 following a four-match unbeaten run, including three wins.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side impressed in victories over France (2-0) and the Netherlands (2-1) in March. Germany followed these results with a 0-0 draw with Ukraine and a 2-1 comeback win against Greece.

Die Nationaelf conceded on 33 minutes before controlling the contest against Greece with 70% possession. Kai Havertz struck after half time and Pascall Gross hit an 89th minute winner. 

Germany Injuries & Team News


Germany have no injuries or suspensions.

Forward Kai Havertz is expected to lead the line after scoring four goals in six matches for club and country. 

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Oliver Baumann, Alexander Nübel 
Defenders: Joshua Kimmich, Antonio Rüdiger, Jonathan Tah, David Raum, Benjamin Henrichs, Nico Schlotterbeck, Robin Koch, Maximilian Mittelstqdt, Waldemar Anton 
Midfielders: Toni Kroos, İlkay Gundogan, Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Florian Wirtz, Pascal Gross, Robert Andrich, Chris Fuhrich, Aleksandar Pavlovic 
Forwards: Thomas Muller, Kai Havertz, Niclas Fullkrug, Deniz Undav, Maximilian Beier

Scotland  Form


Scotland are winless in eight of their previous nine matches in all competitions. The Tartan Army’s only recent win was a 2-0 victory over minnows Gibraltar.

Scotland have lost to higher-ranked nations England (3-1, Spain (2-0), France (4-1) and the Netherlands (4-0) since September 2023. Steve Clarke’s outfit then completed their Euros preparations with a 2-2 draw at home against Finland.

The Tartan Army led 2-0 through a Finnish own goal and Lawrence Shankland’s header. Scotland then conceded two goals in the final 18 minutes and had to settle for a draw.

Scotland Injuries & Team News


Captain Andy Robertson is doubtful due to injury.

Striker Lawrence Shankland is also an injury doubt. 

Goalkeepers: Craig Gordon, Angus Gunn, Zander Clark, Liam Kelly 
Defenders: Andrew Robertson, Grant Hanley, Kieran Tierney, Scott McKenna, Jack Hendry, Liam Cooper, Greg Taylor, Ryan Porteous, John Souttar, Anthony Ralston, Ross McCrorie 
Midfielders: John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Stuart Armstrong, Scott McTominay, Ryan Christie, Kenny McLean, Billy Gilmour, Ryan Jack 
Forwards: James Forrest, Ché Adams, Lawrence Shankland, Ben Doak

Verdict

Germany have momentum under Nagelsmann and the home nation will be eager to produce a dominant performance in Munich. An out-of-form Scotland side are unlikely to have enough threat to hurt Germany and a commanding Die Nationaelf win is tipped.
