England will be looking to take a step into the next round of this summer’s Euro 2020 Championship when they host traditional rivals Scotland at Wembley on Friday night in the second Group D game.
The Three Lions kicked off with a 1-0 win over Croatia, whilst their arch-rivals have a lot of ground to cover after losing 2-0 to the Czech Republic in their opener.
We fancy this will one hell of a cracker given the prevailing circumstances. We will turn our attention on the Betway app prices in this preview.
Raheem Sterling scored the all-important goal against Croatia on Sunday in what was a fairly comfortable victory for England against a Croatian team that is a pale shadow of the side that made it to the World Cup Final in 2018. They dictated the pace for the most part and keeper Jordan Pickford was for intents and purposes a ghost worker, hardly making any save all through the game.
Gareth Southgate will be keen to put that match behind them and focus on getting a second win on the trot that will certainly have them through to the round of 16 with a match to spare.
The Scots are under immense pressure following their disappointing two-goal loss to the Czech Republic on Monday. They gave a fairly good account of themselves but had no answers for Bayer Leverkusen forward Patrik Schick’s terrific double at Hampden Park, including an early front runner for goal of the tournament.
With their final group game coming against Croatia on June 22, Scotland will be fired up to take on their rivals in Wembley, as any positive result put them in a position to vie for second or third in the group, which could be enough to make it out of the group.
Being a derby, this game is likely to be characterized by high octane tension and drama, akin to Premier League derbies. Scotland are desperate to avoid another defeat and they will throw the kitchen sink at their neighbors if push comes to shove. England have the better squad on paper and are favored to pick up the win here. However, it will not be a walk in the park. The game will be physical and the potential for cynical challenges means the card market is attractive here. With England expected to dominate proceedings, the Scots will be on the back foot and we fancy them to get more bookings @ 1.79 as our first of our Euro 2020 betting tips today.
Harry Kane was fairly docile against the Croats. A game that has Premier League vibes will be his cup of coffee and we feel he will be a factor here. He actually scored a last gasp equalizer against Scotland the last time these teams met. He has been tipped as one of the favorites for the golden boot and we feel comfortable in backing him to open his account here by scoring anytime @ 1.83 with Betway.
