Friday evening heralds the start of Euro 2024, with Germany bringing the curtain up against Scotland at FuBball Arena Munchen.

The home team is the pre-game betting favourites with Betfred traders, but Steve Clarke’s underdogs arrive in high spirits, hoping to catch their big-name opponents cold. Which team will race into pole position with a win? Place your bets at Betfred.

Friday’s game will be the first meeting between these sides since September 2015, when Germany won by the spare in a five-goal thriller at Hampden.

The Germans claimed that European Championship qualifier, but they were pushed hard by a dogged and determined opponent. Germany won 3-2, with the winning goal scored by İlkay Gündoğan, and armchair fans would appreciate another goal-fest.

Most pundits, traders, and bettors expect Germany to bag all three points on Friday and get their competition off to the perfect start. Julian Nagelsmann’s men enjoy home advantage and will be cheered on by a huge support inside the arena. They beat former European champions Greece 2-1 in their final friendly match before the competition begins, and you can back Germany to beat Scotland at 2/7. One for your weekend multiples, perhaps.

The Scots impressed during qualifying when finishing as runners-up behind Spain in Group A. They beat Spain early in the campaign and finished with impressive stats of five wins, two draws, and one defeat, scoring 17 goals and conceding eight.

Scotland beat Gibraltar 2-0 before ending 2-2 with Finland in this month’s friendlies, proving they have no problems finding the net. Will Scotland shock Germany? You can back the underdogs at 11/1 or try the draw at 9/2 on the Betfred app and website.

Both teams to score

There’s a buzz of excitement in the air as Friday begins a thrilling summer festival of football. Over the next four weeks, we’ll enjoy the amazing highs and punishing lows of a European Championship campaign. But which team will start with a win? Germany is the obvious choice against a Scottish squad that lost some of its best players to injury, but their price in the match betting market is tight.

We stray into the specials in search of betting value and pick both teams to score as our best bet at 6/5. When analysing the stats, we note that both teams to score would’ve been a winner in each of the last four renewals, including that 3-2 for Germany in Glasgow last time. Germany is the pre-game favourites, but Scotland boasts an attacking threat and looks capable of getting on the scoresheet.

Both score & no draw

Sticking with the trends, these sides haven’t produced a draw since a 1-1 finish in 2003, but the nations always serve up a competitive contest. There has been one goal or less between the teams in each of the last six meetings, a run stretching back to 1992 when Germany won 2-0. Another hard-fought 90+ minutes is expected.

Following our last bet, we aim for better odds when backing both teams to score and the game not to end in a draw. With this wager, it doesn’t matter which team wins the game as long as both find the net and the result isn’t a level finish. With a competitive contest expected, backers will get a run for their money.

Correct Score Prediction: Germany 2-1 Scotland

Looking for a bet on Germany vs Scotland at great odds to really ramp up the excitement levels and mark the arrival of Euro 2024 in style? We’ve got you covered with our correct score prediction.

We’re backing Germany 2-1 Scotland at an eye-catching 8/1 which is available on the Betfred website and mobile app now. Odds are correct at the time of publishing but are subject to change and may move in the time between us writing the article and you gambling on the opening game.

The stats show betting on Germany to beat Scotland 2-1 would’ve landed you a winner in two of the last three meetings and each of the previous two games played in Germany. The most recent game produced a 3-2 German victory and we expect another competitive and entertaining match.
