Spain vs Scotland Lineups and Last Match


Spain made light work of Cyprus at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes last time out. Gavi opened the scoring in the 18th-minute and the home side lead 2-0 at the interval thanks to a goal from Merino. In the second half, Joselu made it 3-0 and Torres added a fourth before Baena made it 5-0 all in the space of 7-minutes. Torres bagged his second goal of the game in the 83rd minute to wrap up a commanding 6-0 victory. Azpilicueta, Gaya, Pedri, Yamal, Olmo, Asensio and Moreno have not made the Spain squad for one reason or another.

Predicted Lineup – Simón (GK), Carvajal, Laporte, Balde, Le Normand, Merino, Rodri, Gavi, Morata, Oyarzabal & Torres


Scotland and McTominay continued their fine form in the Euro 2024 qualifiers away at struggling Cyprus in September. The Man Utd midfielder scored in the 6th-minute to make it 6-goals in Group A and shortly after, Porteous made it 2-0. A goal from McGinn on the half-hour mark made it 3-0 at the break and ended any faint hopes of a Cyprus comeback. There were no further goals in this game with Scotland doing all they needed to do before the break to maintain their 100% start to the qualifiers.

Predicted Lineup – Gunn (GK), Robertson, Hickey, Hendry, Porteous, Taylor, McGregor, McGinn, McTominay, Gilmour & Adams

What is Twitter saying about Spain vs Scotland?

Confidence is high in the Scotland camp and this post suggests that the visitors are excited for tonight's match….

Player to Watch: Scott McTominay

I'm not sure we can pick any player but Scott McTominay as our player to watch in this game.

The Scotland international has scored an amazing 6-goals in five Euro 2024 qualifiers despite being considered by his club side as a defensive player. However, for his country, McTominay plays further forward and the Man Utd man has made a habit of getting in the right place at the right time to score some vital goals that look like they will guide Scotland to Euro 2024.

Spain are the favourites to win this game but Scotland have already done a job on their counterparts and you wouldn't bet against the visitors upsetting the odds and coming away with a share of the spoils.
