Scotland will be looking to get off to a solid start in their two friendlies before Euro 2024 and they're favourites in this crucial away bout against Gibraltar who are ranked 203rd in the world.

Gibraltar vs Scotland prediction: Steve Clarke's men need a good start

Key stats

  • Scotland are winless in their last seven matches
  • The Tartan Army have failed to score in back-to-back games
  • Gibraltar have not scored a home goal since November 19th

Pre-game odds and win probability: Scotland backed to claim much-needed win

  • Home: 33/1 (34.0) – 2.9%
  • Draw: 14/1 (15.0) – 6.7%
  • Away: 1/66 (1.02) – 98.5%

It would be one of the biggest shocks in football if Gibraltar were even able to avoid defeat at home to Scotland and the bookmakers share that feeling with these very huge odds.

The Tartan Army are going to be the overwhelming favourites for this clash, but the odds are futile and pointless backing. So, we're going to suggest you back Steve Clarke's men at a handicap of -2 which should provide much better value. Of course, you can check out our free betting tips page for much more inspiration.

Last five H2Hs: Gibraltar yet to taste victory

These two nations have faced off twice in the past and it's been incredibly one-sided in Scotland's favour. The Tartan Army won both of the Eur0 2015 qualifiers by an aggregate scoreline of 12-1 scoring six in each match.

Gibraltar preview: A tough task awaits

Gibraltar have conceded 26 goals in their last five games including a humiliating 14-0 defeat at the hands of France. Their last two results have been back-to-back 1-0 defeats against Lithuania which is more promising but this should be too much for them to handle.

Predicted lineup: Coleing (GK) – Sergeant, Mouelhi, Chipolina, Olivero, Jolley – Walker, Pozo, Haro, Casciaro – Barr

Scotland preview: Winning in style is required

Scotland have been in a rotten run of form lately which is far from ideal as they look to impress at the Euros this summer after going out without a fight last time out. Clarke's men have a great chance to boost confidence and morale against a poor Gibraltar side.

Predicted lineup: Gunn (GK), Hendry, Cooper, Tierney, Robertson, McTominay, Gilmour, Ralston, Christie, McGinn, Adams

Scotland's Scott McTominay

Player to watch: Scott McTominay

While Scotland have been experiencing a drop off in form to what they're used to under Clarke, Scott McTominay has been thriving in his country's colours. The Manchester United midfielder has added goals to his game for both club and country.

Goals are becoming a regular occurrence

McTominay has eight goal involvements in his last 12 appearances for Scotland and will be keen to add more against a lowly-ranked Gibraltar side, but it remains to be seen if Clarke will play him in a deeper midfield role or unleash him into the attack.
