How to watch Scotland v Czech Republic
The match, valid for the Group D, is at Hampden Park, and Scotland will be looking for home advantage to come to fruition with 12,000 supporters allowed inside the stadium for the match.
Scotland vs Czech Republic will be shown on BBC One and on the BBC iPlayer with coverage beginning at 1.15pm.
Scotland vs Czech Republic Betting PreviewMonday's clash at Hampden Park will mark Scotland's first match at a major international tournament since the 1998 World Cup having qualified via a penalty shoot-out victory over Serbia in the play-offs. The Tartan Army are unbeaten in five ahead of their Euro 2020 campaign and have also beaten the Czech Republic twice in the UEFA Nations League in the last 12 months - 2-1 away and then 1-0 at Hampden Park..
Czech Republic have lost 4 of the last 5 matches played away from home. Jaroslav Silhavy's side suffered a 4-0 defeat to Italy in their first pre-tournament friendly on June 4th but a 3-1 win over Albania last week ended a three-match winless run for the Czech Republic. Anyway, the Czechs can't be taken lightly - they beat England in qualifying for the tournament.
Best Odds & Enhanced PricesScotland are 19/10 with Mansion Bet to win on Sunday, with Czech Republic priced at 21/10 at VBet to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 2/1 with BetVictor.
Below you can find the best odds enhancement on this clash and teams involved in this fixture.
Scotland (3-5-2): Marshall; Hendry, Hanley, Tierney; O'Donnell, McTominay, McGregor, McGinn, Robertson; Dykes, Adams
Billy Gilmour was forced off late on in the last pre-EUro 2020 friendly but he should be fit to play, at least as a substitute. Actually, Steve Clarke set to use John McGinn, Scott McTominay and Callum McGregor in midfield while Andrew Robertson and Stephen O'Connell will start as wing-backs. Up front, the likes of Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams will spearhead the attack. Young Rangers right-back Nathan Patterson will be hoping to start after impressing in the final warm-up match against Luxembourg. Jack Hendry could ultimately be given the nod at the back alongside Grant Hanley and Tierney.
Czech Republic (4-2-3-1): Vaclik; Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril; Soucek, Kral; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick
Lukas Provod has been ruled out of the competition due to a knee injury. Tomas Kalas will start alongside Ondrej Celustka at the heart of the defence while West Ham duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal will feature from the off in midfield and right back respectively. Patrik Schick is expected to get the nod over Burnley's Matej Vydra to feature in the centre-forward spot. Ondrej Kudela misses out due to the 10-game ban he received for racially abusing Rangers’ Glen Kamara in the Europe League.
Scotland v Czech Republic PredictionsIt will be a close affair between two tough nations. With both teams' strengths found in defense, the Under 2.5 looks the safer bet. Czech Republic have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five matches, so we believe Scotland can nail the three points here.
