Scotland take on the visitors Spain in the round 2 match of UEFA Euro 2024 qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 28th at Hampden Park (Glasgow).
Scotland can certainly talk about the long-awaited rise of their football - primarily in the format of national teams. The bright signal of this was the participation in Euro 2020, albeit through the playoffs and, importantly, with an exit after the group stage, even though they managed a respectable away draw against neighboring England at Wembley. However, after that, they made it to the playoffs for the right to play in the World Cup. Although they lost to Ukraine at home in Glasgow, they managed to take revenge against them by taking the first place in the Nations League group, with 4 points, winning 3-0 at home and drawing 0-0 away. In the new cycle, Steve Clarke's team started on the same arena, hosting the national team of Cyprus. There were no problems as the islanders were crushed 3-0 with a double by McTominay.

After the "golden" period of 2008-2012, La Furia Roja went through a difficult period. Against this backdrop, all questions and claims against Luis Enrique were related to the results. With this coach, the team managed, first of all, to reach the semi-finals of the previous Euro, losing in the penalty shootout to Italy and its goalkeeper Donnarumma. On the other hand, several times everything was "on the edge", but the Spanish team was lucky. In addition, the team had other successes, from reaching the Olympic final to winning the Nations League group in 2022. But all this was shattered by the failure at the World Cup. In Qatar, everything started well, as they crushed Costa Rica, scoring 7 goals to Keylor Navas. Then, however, problems began, but they still managed to make it out of the group... only to lose as favorites to Morocco in the Round of 16. In the end, it turned out to be too painful a repeat of 2018, when the favorite again could not confirm its status already in the 1st round of the playoffs and then capitulated in the knockout stages. It is not surprising that Luis Enrique paid for this with his position. He was replaced by a long-time youth coach, de la Fuente. The latter debuted in his new role in Zaragoza, hosting strong Norway. It turned out well - it ended with a 3-0 win, with a double by age debutant, Joselu.
"La Furia Roja" has 5 wins with only a couple of losses in 9 head-to-head matches, including 3 victories with a draw in the last 4 matches. The guests are logically considered favorites in the confrontation. But the "mountaineers" are good on their own field - we recommend betting on "both teams to score".
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes.
