Spain take on the visitors Scotland in the round 7 match of group stage of UEFA Euro-2024 qualification. The match will be played on Thursday, October 11th at Estadio de La Cartuja (Sevilla).
Spain, under a new coach, has already secured a trophy. La Furia Roja had to change their coach after their disappointing performance at the previous World Cup. After Qatar, all of Luis Enrique's past sins and the questions surrounding his team's play came to the forefront. As a result, Luis Enrique was replaced with De La Fuente from the youth team. Luis Enrique has already won a title, albeit only the UEFA Nations League, defeating Croatia in the final in a penalty shootout. However, during the qualification process, they suffered a setback, losing 0-2 to Scotland in Glasgow. Nevertheless, they won the other three matches against Norway, Georgia, and Cyprus, scoring a total of 16 goals while conceding only one. It's unlikely that the Kings of Qualification will risk embarrassment now, but they should not become complacent as the cycle nears its end.

Scotland is currently showcasing its best football in decades. The Tartan Army was mediocre for a long time, unable to make significant progress. They even made it to the previous European Championship through an additional option provided by the UEFA Nations League. Although they didn't perform particularly well there (0-0 against England and a couple of losses, with the most memorable moment being Gordon's long-range goal), it served as an impetus for improvement. Later, the Scots reached the playoffs for the World Cup qualification, where they lost to Ukraine at home, but they also secured their place in the UEFA Nations League group. However, the biggest surprise from Steve Clarke and his team is reserved for the current qualification. After five matches, they have a perfect record, including a victory against Spain!
Previous matches saw Spain on a five-match unbeaten streak, including two victories in the qualification for Euro 2012. But in March, Scotland won 2-0. Everyone is waiting for a Furia Roja comeback, but the Scots will certainly come prepared to defend resolutely. Let's bet on their victory with a +1.5 goal handicap.
Prediction for the match: Scotland to win with +1.5 handicap.
