Netherlands vs Scotland

, KO: 19:45 Mar 22, 2024, Johan Cruyff Arena

SCOTLAND begin their preparations for Euro 2024 with a friendly fixture against the Netherlands at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Friday night.

After agonisingly missing out on a place at the 2022 World Cup, Steve Clarke's squad rebounded in style by sealing their passage to this year's Euros with two games to spare.

Whilst Scotland were unable to pip Spain to first place in the pool during qualifying, hopes remain high amongst the Tartan Army ahead of this summers showpiece.

Housed in Euro 2024 Group A alongside Germany, Switzerland and Hungary, Friday night's friendly with the Netherlands should act as a good warm-up match for the Scots ahead of their curtain-raiser with Germany in Munich on June 14th.

As for Ronald Koeman’s side, they stamped their ticket to Euro 2024 after finishing as runners-up to France in Group B.

The Dutch will come up against the Les Bleus again this summer after being drawn in Group D, which also contains Austria and one of the pending playoff winners.

Outright Betting

These two nations played out a 2-2 draw in a friendly match ahead of Euro 2020 and the same outcome here is as big as 10/3 (UniBet) while the Netherlands are comfortable 4/9 (Bet 365) favourites.

Scotland go into the first of their four friendly matches ahead of Euro 2024 as sizable 13/2 underdogs on William Hill.

Betting Angles

Tackling friendly fixtures from a betting perspective is seldom a straightforward task but backing Scotland to score in this game stands out at 5/6 on Bet 365.

Whilst scoring goals is not something you would necessarily associate with sides managed by Steve Clarke, the Scots have hit the back of the net more often than not in recent times.

In fact, Scotland have struck in 10 of their last 11 outings across all competitions, a sample that includes friendly matches with the likes of Turkey, England and France.

As such, the visitors look worthy of interest to breach a Dutch backline that are not exactly renowned for their defensive solidity.

That is evidenced by the fact that the hosts have conceded at least one goal in nine of their last 10 non-competitive contests.

With that in mind, coupled with the likelihood of both managers taking a relaxed approach here with a view to experimenting ahead of Euro 2024, backing Scotland to score represents a nice slice of value at 5/6 (Bet 365).

Admittedly, it may not be the most attractive looking price, but the 8/11 on Bet 365 for Scotland to earn three or more corners also merits consideration.

The Republic of Ireland and Greece both racked up 3+ flag kicks on their respective visits to the Netherlands recently and Scotland can follow suit.

This match between Netherlands and Scotland will be played on Mar 22, 2024 and kick off at 19:45. Check below for our tipsters best Netherlands vs Scotland prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
