International football action returns this week as various European teams renew the battle for a place in next year’s continental showpiece. In one of the fixtures to anticipate, Spain take on Scotland on Thursday. Following their last 16 stage exit at last year’s World Cup, Spain have been going through a rebuild, with a view to re-establishing themselves as a European Football power house. So far, it seems to be yielding results as they emerged champions of the 2022/23 Nations League, beating Croatia 5-4 on penalties in the final back in June. In this Euro Qualification tie, Spain will be looking to avenge a 2-0 loss to Scotland in the reverse fixture and earn all 3 points to keep chasers Norway at bay in Group A.
Meanwhile, Scotland are enjoying a fine start to the Euro Qualifying campaign, having garnered 5 wins in 5, to earn 15 points, remaining unbeaten so far and topping Group A. In fact, they have scored 12 goals, conceding just once so far. If Scotland continue this way, they might as well finish as Group winners and secure a fourth appearance at the European Championship, having only featured 3 times before; in 1992, 1996 and 2020. Here, they will be gunning for a second consecutive win over the Spaniards following a 2-0 win at Hampden Park back in March this year. That victory was courtesy a brace by Scott McTominay, gave the Scots their only victory against Spain. Hence, getting a win here will be huge for Scotland.
Without doubt, Scotland have showed a lot of promises and intent so far. This indicates a huge departure form the failures of the past and how bright the future is for Steve Clarke’s men. While we expect that run to boost Scotland’s confidence in this tie, Spain’s all round experience and home support will certainly be a huge hurdle to scale. Therefore, for our Spain Vs Scotland prediction, we expect th home side to find the back of the net at least twice here.
The International break is here again and we have compiled some Euro Qualifiers Prediction to help you win more.

Prediction 1: Spain Over 1.5 Goals
In 4 of their last 5 outings, Spain have found the back of the net at least twice, beating Cyprus 6-0 in their last qualifying fixture.

In fact, the only time Spain failed to score against Scotland was in that 2-0 first leg loss. Going by this stats and facts, we expect Spain to bounce back here, trouble Scotland and score at least 2 goals.

Prediction 2: Goal In Both Halves
A look at the past meetings between both sides show the extent to which they can trouble each other’s defence line. In fact, each of their last four meetings have produced at least a goal in both halves, with 13 goals scored across those 4 fixtures. Also, in their last 2 games, Spain scored 13 goals against Georgia and Cyprus respectively, with both games producing goal in both the first and second half. In addition, Scotland have an impressive goal return of 16 in 5 qualifying fixtures, meaning their goal scoring prowess is a huge factor to consider here. Based on this, we expect this game to deliver on the goals front and for our second Spain Vs Scotland prediction, we expect at least a goal to be scored in both halves.

Prediction 3: Over 8.5 Corners
The attacking nature of these two sides have never been in doubt. This has reflected in how entertaining past meetings have been and how much flair they have displayed in their last respective games. Also, Spain are currently 2nd on the log having lost 1 of their last 4 games. As things stand, they are 2 points above Norway who are in 3rd. To avoid any complications, Spain will be gunning for a win here to stay in contention for an automatic qualification for next year’s showpiece. With this kind of high quality football played by both teams and Spain’s quest to avenge the last loss in the hands of Scotland, we expect a high tempo game. Therefore, we are anticipating that at least 9 corners will be played in this match
