England will be looking to continue their great start to Euro 2020, with a win over old rivals Scotland, played at home soil Wembley. They’ll be playing Friday evening at 8pm. So while the pubs may be busy, you can still view this game on ITV.
Scotland will be under pressure to try to salvage their situation in group D, but will they have enough to challenge England?
After beating Croatia on Sunday, most bookmakers reacted by making the Lions clear second-favourite for the Euro 2020 Winner Odds. If you fancy England to win you can back them at 11/2 with 888sport. They are also clear 2/15, odds-on favourites to win group D.
The last time these two teams met in a big tournament was way back in the 1996 Euros, most famous for Paul Gascoigne scoring an amazing goal. We are now in the Kane era though, and Harry will be looking to have a better game than on Sunday, where he was lucky to avoid a serious shoulder injury, when crashing into the goal post, while trying to score.
Scotland will be disappointed after losing 2-0 to the Czechs on Monday, despite defending quite well, they will hopefully learn from that game. But they are up against the odds to survive in group D. Scots star Joe McGinn has vowed to put friendship with Lions player Jack Grealish, in the build-up to this game. These two close pals will be sure to reconvene friendship after the game. Please check our Euro 2020 News and Updates page for latest team news and odds. Scotland's final game will be against Croatia on Tuesday, and they will be keenly watching the outcome of Croatia Vs Czechoslovakia, played at 5pm on Friday.
No surprises that England are the clear 1/3 favourites to win this game. The Euro 2020 Betting Odds for Scotland to cause an upset are at 19/2 with LeoVegas.
If you feel England are too short a price, but still want a bet on the game, maybe the over/under total goals market could be the answer! LeoVegas are offering 22/25 odds for there to be over 2.5 goals in the game. Will it be a high-scoring affair on Friday night?
In a recent conversation between ex-Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson and Rio Ferdinand, Ferguson said he thinks “ … Scotland will overrun the Three Lions”. Anything is possible, but we do not agree with the Manchester United legend here. We think England will make a fast start, just as they did against Croatia on Sunday, when Phil Foden hit the post in the 6th minute.
Although England failed to score in the first half against Croatia, England have led at half time six out of the last ten matches. For this reason, we’re going to opt for a half-time/full-time bet on England at 10/11 odds with 888sport.
Despite being nowhere near the full 90,000 capacity at Wembley, the atmosphere will be as buzzing as always, when these two old rivals meet. If you don’t fancy going out for this one, ITV are screening this at 8pm on Friday 18th June . You can also access this on ITV hub if you prefer viewing online.
Will the Lions be roaring in this game, or will this game become the start of another disappointing Euro campaign from England?
England certainly have the quality team for the job, plus have the home soil advantage. But will Scotland fight back in group D and defy their 8/1 odds to win this game? Guys, let us know your opinions and predictions via Twitter @Betting_COUK.
