Scotland – Gibraltar betting tip, prediction & odds 03.06.2024

Test match, Monday, 03.06.2024

Before you place your Euro bets on the DFB team’s performance, you should first take a look at the two June test matches of the host nation’s opening opponents.

According to my Scotland Gibraltar betting tip, the “Bravehearts” will be able to send the kickers from the Monkey Island home with a 2:0, 3:0 or even 4:0.

However, I don’t have the necessary imagination to imagine an even clearer victory against the mighty soccer power

I haven’t the faintest idea why the Scots got involved in an international match with Gibraltar.

So close to the start of the 2024 European Championship, I would have expected a more challenging opponent, but the association will surely have had something in mind.

In any case, there is no question that the “Bravehearts” should have an easy game against the 203rd-ranked team in the FIFA world rankings.

The small footballing power is still struggling to put together a starting eleven made up entirely of professional players, whereas the DFB’s opening opponents have recruited almost all of their personnel from the best league in the world, the English Premier League.

Gibraltar’s squad is largely made up of players who play soccer on an amateur basis within this small British overseas territory.

Meanwhile, worthy of note ahead of tonight is the first-time nomination of several youngsters on whom the small country’s hopes rest, but none of whom are yet 19.

Namely, Liam Jessop from Chesterfield, Tayler Carrington from Estepona and the extremely talented James Scanlon from Manchester United.

On the pitch tonight, however, we should see the experienced core of the team that has also played large parts of the European Championship qualifiers together

Scotland have already named their prospective European Championship squad and against Gibraltar and Finland we will get a good impression of the potential that lies dormant in this team.

Liverpool FC’s Andrew Robertson will lead the defense, while the midfield is undoubtedly the most competitive, with several Premier League players vying for a starting place in the shape of John McGinn (Aston Villa), Scott McTominay (Manchester United) and Billy Gilmour (Brighton).

Germany’s opening opponents on June 14 are a little thin on the ground. Although Ben Doak from the renowned Liverpool FC has been nominated for the first time, at the age of 18 his first priority is to gain valuable experience.

Meanwhile, the role of lone striker will fall to either James Forrest of Celtic Glasgow or Che Adams of Southampton, who have almost identical stats in terms of international appearances and goals

In my opinion, Scotland are a team that are more comfortable countering their opponents than circulating the ball in their own ranks for long periods.

At the start of the European Championship qualifiers, the Bravehearts were still at their best when they managed to beat both Spain (2-0) and Norway (2-1).

I still believe in the potential of this team to cause problems even for Germany on June 14. However, there’s no denying that their recent performances have left a lot to be desired

Scotland have not won any of their last seven international matches before this clash with Gibraltar (2 draws, 5 defeats). Is that perhaps why they turned to the kickers from Monkey Rock for some confidence?

In any case, some of these defeats, such as those against France (1:4) and Holland (0:4), were pretty harsh, so it seems perfectly reasonable to allow the back line to finally play to nil again against this build-up opponent.

SCO have conceded far too many goals in recent months anyway. An average of 2.71 goals conceded per appearance in this period has some of you rightly thinking about placing free bets on a big win for the Germans on June 14

Many of you will have heard that Gibraltar lost 14-0 to France in the European Championship qualifiers. However, the conditions at the Princes’ Park were extremely unfavorable, as their own defender was sent off with a red card after just 18 minutes.

However, “Los Llanis” usually defend relatively well by their standards. The last two international matches against Lithuania were each lost by just 0:1 and even the 4:0 defeats against Ireland and Wales in mid-October 2023 were within the acceptable range

But that Scotland should win is something that even the last of my betting friends’ reviewed European Championship bookmakers seem to blindly believe in.

The Scotland Gibraltar odds for a home win for the “Bravehearts” are around a microscopic 1.04, which makes a handicap bet almost unavoidable for profit-oriented sports betting fans.

Incidentally, both nations faced each other for the first and only time in the qualifiers for Euro 2016. Both games went to the Scots with 6:0 and 6:1 respectively. This time, however, I’m not expecting such a clear victory!

Conclusion: The Scots have an all-round strong team that only lacks the necessary penetration in attack to pose a long-term threat to top nations.

Moreover, the Bravehearts are not exactly adept at making the play, which is why I think that the 1-0 should be a relatively long time coming against this deep-lying opponent.

Sooner or later, the European Championship participants should actually manage to break through. But I personally don’t expect them to win by more than 4-0.

Accordingly, my Scotland Gibraltar betting tip is: There will be less than 4.5 goals in total
