Scotland take on the visitors Norway in the round 10 match of group stage of UEFA Euro-2024 qualification. The match will be played on Sunday, November 19th at Hampden Park (Glasgow).
Scotland had an excellent qualifying cycle and secured their spot in the European Championship ahead of time. However, it seems that either the British team lacks strength for the remaining qualification matches, or the players under Steve Clarke lack motivation. Initially, they lost to Spain (0-2). Before and after this match, they suffered defeats in friendly matches against England (1-3) and France (1-4). You might argue that the opponents were strong, and I agree. But how then do you explain the draw against Georgia in the last round of Euro qualification (2-2)? In general, it's challenging to predict the outcome of Scotland's match against Norway. Recently, the British team has been consistently scoring and conceding goals. They are capable of disappointing the Scandinavians at least once on their home turf.

From the current Norway team, one should expect at least one goal in almost any match, except perhaps against top national teams. In the current qualification cycle, the Norwegians failed to breach the Spanish defense, only from two attempts. In their other matches, Norway managed to upset their opponents. With masters like Haaland and Ødegaard on their team, it's no surprise. They convincingly defeated Cyprus twice (3-1 and 4-0), had two challenging matches with Georgia, each featuring an exchange of accurate shots (2-1 and 1-1). Norway also scored in the first encounter against Scotland but ended up losing (1-2). Although they couldn't compete for the second spot in the table until the end, Solbakken's team looks very respectable, especially in attack.
In conclusion, this match does not weigh on the morale of either the hosts or the guests. One team has already qualified for the Euros, while the other cannot make it anymore. Both teams can play without thinking about the result and enjoy the game. Both teams have a strong attack, but their defenses, both for the British and the Scandinavians, are not flawless. In the Euro qualifying cycle, both teams failed to score only against Spain (once for the hosts and twice for the visitors). Scotland has conceded in four consecutive matches, considering two friendlies. Norway, in seven group-stage matches, exchanged accurate shots with opponents four times. I consider the bet "Both Teams to Score" at such odds a worthy and, most importantly, a logical option.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
