Euro 2020 England vs Scotland Betting Odds
This is one of the most anticipated Euro 2020 matchday 2 fixtures of this international tournament, with both football sides being huge rivals and foes that have plenty of history when it comes down to previous games that they have played in.
The 2020 UEFA European Championships have been contrasting for both European teams, though, which is what will likely make this contest one of the games of matchday 2 and one that will provide EagleBet readers with all the best potential betting markets and odds possible to bet on the Euro 2020 England vs Scotland.
Current Euro 2020 Standings
England started off their Euro 2020 campaign in top fashion as they managed to brush aside Croatia in their opener when Raheem Sterling got the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory.
Although the scoreline might not suggest it, the Three Lions dominated every single aspect of their encounter with their competitive rivals as Croatia failed to get anything of substance sorted.
Scotland, on the other hand, were handed a defeat by the Czech Republic, with Patrik Schick scoring both of the goals in the 2-0 defeat, including a wondergoal from 47 yards that ‘keeper David Marshall could not do anything about.
The Scots were not awful in that game, however they have left themselves in a must-win position when they face the old enemy at Wembley Stadium on Friday 18 June.
A win for England will see them advance to the next stage of the Euro 2020 competition and this is probably the most safe betting tips for this match.
Previous England vs Scotland Encounters
As to be expected, there have been a number of previous encounters between the two sides throughout history, but none are perhaps as famous as their meeting in the Euro 1996 group stages that was also played at Wembley Stadium.
The game, which also took place in matchday 2, saw England win 2-0 after Alan Shearer and Paul Gascoigne’s wonder strike (accompanied with the famous “dentist chair” celebration” sealed the three points on the day, with Gary McAllister having missed from the penalty spot to tie the game when David Seaman saved the kick.
However, there have been other meetings in recent memory that have seen the football fixture be a little tighter, with their most recent meeting in 2017.
Played at Hampden Park as part of a qualifier for the FIFA World Cup in 2018, the game finished 2-2 after Leigh Griffiths scored twice in the last three minutes of the game to take the lead following an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goal. Harry Kane, though, scored a late goal to level things deep into stoppage time.
England Goalscorer Predictions
