The domestic club season might be coming to an end, with just the Champions League and Europa Conference League finals left to play, but the football does not end here for the summer. The European Championship will be taking place in Germany between the 14th of June and the 14th of July, with the first match seeing Germany take on Scotland at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Who will go on and win this opening game? Well, that is a question that this prediction will answer in full.

🏆 Germany vs Scotland: Who Will Win?

Germany did not have to qualify for this tournament as they qualified automatically as hosts, and some football fans will wonder whether this lack of playing time will end up being detrimental to their chances of winning their first European Championship title since 1996. The Germans are usually a team to be feared in international competitions, but they have gone off the boil in recent events - in the 2020 European Championship they were eliminated in the Round of 16, while they did not get out of the Group Stage in the 2022 World Cup. However, in March, they showed that they still have quality by beating France 2-0 and the Netherlands 2-1.

This will be just the fourth time that Scotland have managed to qualify for the UEFA European Championship finals, but they are yet to make it out of the Group Stages. However, they have improved in quality in recent years, with many of their players playing in the top flight of English football, and they showed how good they can be on their day when they beat Spain 2-0 in the qualifying round. Considering Hungary vs Switzerland in their group, they will fancy their chances of making it through to the knockout stages for the first time.

While I think Scotland will have a decent competition, I do not think that they will get their campaign off to a winning start. Germany, as the hosts, will be well up for this match and will be backed by a partisan crowd. I can see Scotland struggling with the quality that the Germans have, so I have got to back Germany to go on and win. As for the score line, I am going to go for a 3-1 win for the hosts.

My Prediction: 🏆 Germany 3 Scotland 1 ⚽

💯 Germany vs Scotland Odds

Due to the prestige of the European Championships, established and new UK betting sites will always offer a nice variety of markets and competitive odds for it. However, not all sports betting sites have been created equally, and you obviously want to bet with the best of the best so that you can get the most value from your hard-earned money. Below you can five top bookmakers that British football bettors should have a good look at.

If you like the look of any of these five bookmakers but you want to find out more about them before you go ahead and complete the registration process, then head on over to our bookmaker reviews section and you will find all of the information that you require.

🏅 Germany vs Scotland: Winner Odds

These two nations have played a total of 17 matches against each other, with Germany winning eight of them, Scotland winning four and the other five matches ending in draws. However, the last time that they played was nine years ago, so I do not think that we can consider these results when we are making predictions for this opening game - barely any of those players who played in that last fixture will be playing in this match.

Germany are one of the favourites to go on and lift the title come the 14th of July, while Scotland, to put it bluntly, are not. Therefore, it will probably not come as much of a surprise to find out that Germany are the overwhelming favourites to win this match. In fact, as you can see from the match winner odds below, the bookmakers are not giving Scotland much hope of getting anything from this game:


⚽ Germany vs Scotland: Both Teams To Score Odds

If you followed my English Premier League predictions closely, you might remember me mentioning how the bookmakers usually always opt for the both teams to score option. However, in this opening game of Euro 2024, the bookmakers are pretty adamant that we will not see both teams finding the back of the net. After the match winner odds above, I do not think I need to tell you what team the bookies believe will not score.

If you are the kind of punter who likes to bet on this market, then check out the BTTS odds that can be found in the table below:


🥅 Germany vs Scotland: Over/Under Odds

The five bookmakers that I have recommended to you believe that there is a good chance that there will be over 2.5 goals scored in this match, while it is unlikely that there will be over 3.5 goals scored. Since the bookies feel that Germany will win this match and that both teams will not score, what this indicates to us is that they believe that Germany will go on and win the game by a 3-0 scoreline. If you want to wager on the over/under 2.5 goals market, then check out the odds that I have provided below:

✔️ Germany vs Scotland - Betting Tips

This section of my Germany vs Scotland betting guide will deal with some of my top betting tips for this game. Whether you are going to be betting with your own hard-earned money or using a free bet offer that you have claimed, it is always wise to check out some betting tips as knowledge is power.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Germany to win in an Accy: Germany should go on to win this match as they have a lot more quality than Scotland and will be spurred on by a partisan crowd. I am also not sure that the Scottish players will be able to cope with the atmosphere that the home fans will create. However, the odds for a German win are far too short in my opinion for a single wager, so I would recommend that you think about adding a German win to an accy in order to boost the odds a little. At the time of writing, 10Bet are offering odds of 1.25.
  • Tip 2: Back both teams to score: The bookmakers do not think that Scotland will manage to score in this match, but I think this gives us a value bet that is worth looking at. While I do not think Scotland will win, I do think that they have enough attacking quality to find the back of the net in the form of Billy Gilmour, John McGinn, Scott McTominay, Lyndon Dykes, and Che Adams. If you can also see Scotland scoring, then you can find odds of 2.40 at BetUK Sports.
  • Tip 3: Give Germany a one-goal handicap: If you do not fancy adding a German win to an accy because you do not like the available odds, then you can consider giving the Germans a handicap of one goal in order to boost their odds. This means that they would need to go on and win the match by two goals for you to win your wager. As I have backed Germany to win 3-1, I think there is a good chance of winning such a handicap bet. If you agree, then LeoVegas Sports are offering odds of 1.68 at the moment.
  • Tip 4: Back Germany to win the match 3-1: It is always worth considering the correct score market as there are usually some pretty enticing odds on offer due to the difficulty levels. The Germans should be too strong for the Scots, and I can see them opening their campaign by scoring three goals. However, I do not think that they will be able to keep Scotland at bay and bag a clean sheet. If you think that this match will finish 3-1, then you can find odds of 10.70 at Betiton Sport.

N.B. It is important to always gamble responsibly. You need to set a budget and stick to it. Never bet to try and regain lost stakes.

1️⃣Germany Euro Update

The other teams at Euro 2024 had to go through a rigorous qualification process in order to book themselves a spot, but Germany did not as they are the host nation. This could end up being a disadvantage to Germany since all of the other teams will have extra valuable playing time together. Obviously, the more players play together, the better they understand each other's game and the better performances they can put in as a whole.

The Germans have only had two friendly matches against France and the Netherlands but as mentioned earlier, they did actually go on and win both of these games. The Dutch and the French are two rivals for the Euro 2024 title, so these wins will give Germany plenty of confidence heading into their home tournament. Below you can see their previous five results:

Usually in my predictions, I will take a look at players who are absent due to injuries or suspension, but obviously, this is not necessary at the start of a tournament.

2️⃣Scotland Euro Update

Scotland, it is fair to say, have improved a lot in recent years and can now give many of the top nations a game. They were in a qualifying group with Spain, Norway, Georgia and Cyprus and were on course to top the group at one point. They finished second with 17 points from their eight matches, scoring 17 and conceding eight. In the last European Championship, they only picked up one point, which was a draw against England, so they will be hoping to do better this time around.

Despite their improvement on the international stage, the Tartan Army will be a little concerned about some of their most recent results, especially their 1-0 defeat to Northern Ireland, who did not even qualify. Below you can see their most recent five results:

There are obviously no injuries and suspensions for Steve Clarke to worry about at the start of the competition.
