Scotland can seal promotion to UEFA Nations League A with victory over Slovakia in their League B clash on Sunday. Holding a four-point lead at the top of Group 2, Steve Clarke's side can follow up their Euro 2020 qualification with more success.

Scotland Form


Scotland booked a place at Euro 2020 with a penalty shootout win over Serbia in their play-off on Thursday. Ryan Christie looked to have won the game for the Scots, only to concede a Luca Jovic goal in the final minute. 

But they were not be denied a place at their first finals in 23 years as five perfect penalties were score before David Marshall saved from Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Scotland are on a nine-game unbeaten run, winning six and drawing three times. They started this UEFA Nations League campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Israel, but followed that with three straight wins.

They won 2-1 in the Czech Republic with Lyndon Dykes and Christie getting the goals. Two 1-0 wins were recorded at home last month against Slovakia and Czech Republic with Dykes and Ryan Fraser the matchwinners. 

Scotland Team News


Steve Clarke is without regular squad members defender Grant Hanley and midfielders Ryan Fraser and James Forrest. 

After 120 minutes against Serbia, the Scotland boss may shuffle his pack on Sunday. He will be forced into at least one change with Lyndon Dykes suspended.

Slovakia Form


Like Scotland, Slovakia secured a spot in the Euro 2020 finals with a play-off victory over Northern Ireland in Belfast on Sunday. 

The tie also went to extra-time after Juraj Kucka's first-half goal was cancelled out when Milan Skriniar put through his own net with two minutes remaining. But Michal Duris won the game for Slovakia with a winner in the 110th minute.

It was a bright point in a miserable run for Slovakia, who started the UEFA Nations League campaign with a 3-1 defeat at home to Czech Repulic before drawing 1-1 away at Israel.

Slovakia were beaten 1-0 away at Scotland last month, and went down 3-2 at home to Israel. They sit bottom of the group with one point and are facing relegation to League B.
