Scotland – Finland Predictions and Preview

  • After a disappointing 2-0 victory over Gibraltar in their first warm-up match ahead of UEFA Euro 2024, Scotland is preparing to face a much tougher opponent in the form of Finland, ranked 61st in the world.
  • Boss Steve Clarke expressed disappointment with the team’s performance, stating that they needed to improve their finishing abilities. It was indeed a worrying performance after a seven-game winless streak (two draws and five losses).
  • With Germany, Switzerland, and Hungary waiting for them in the group stage, Scotland hopes to put on a more convincing display before trying to overcome their underdog tag. The team has an unbeaten record against Finland in their eight historical encounters (six wins and two draws), with each of their last three victories also being accompanied by a clean sheet.
  • Markku Kanerva, the visiting coach, doesn’t have a summer tournament to prepare for, as Euro 2020 remains the only finals Finland has ever qualified for. However, they came close to qualifying for this summer’s showpiece event but were defeated in the play-offs against Wales, another British side.
  • This international window serves as preparation for Finland’s UEFA Nations League B campaign, which starts in September. Despite losing 4-2 to Portugal on Tuesday, the Eagles have still won three of their last six outings (three losses and one draw). They also won against Scotland’s UK neighbors, Northern Ireland.
  • Players to watch: Che Adams scored an emphatic late goal for Scotland this week, meaning his last seven goals for club and country have been either the first or second of the match. Teemu Pukki, Finland’s all-time top scorer with 42 goals, has scored in each of his last four encounters against UK nations (three goals and two assists).
  • Hot stat: Scotland hasn’t won back-to-back friendly internationals since a run of four ending in 2016. Since then, they have lost 13 games, drawn four, and won three.
