Scotland vs Cyprus Predictions


Scotland start as strong favourites and they are backed to make a winning start. Cyprus have scored in the last last five defeats to Scotland and there is value on BTTS.

Head to Head


Scotland have won all previous seven meetings. The last two were 2-1 wins in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Scotland Form


Scotland earned promotion to Nations League A when last in competitive action in September.

A 0-0 draw away to Ukraine was enough to seal top spot in Nations League B Group 1 with Steve Clarke's side finishing two points ahead of their rivals.

Scotland won four of their six games and lost just once in that campaign.

Having missed out on the World Cup, the Scots played once friendly in November and lost 2-1 away to Turkey.

Cyprus Form


Cyprus finished bottom of Nations League C Group 2 after suffering a heavy 5-1 defeat away to Kosovo in September.

It was a third defeat of the campaign that yielded just one win and five points.

Cyprus played two friendlies in November, losing 2-0 to Bulgaria before recording an entertaining 3-2 win over Israel.

Verdict

Scotland beat Cyprus 2-1 in both Euro 2020 qualifiers between the sides. I'm backing this Euro 2024 qualifying opener also sees the same outcome with Scotland and BTTS both backed.

The last four clashes have all been 2-1 wins, so a small stake on another is tipped.
