With over 75,000 fans expected for this match, in what is likely Germany’s legendary midfielder Thomas Mueller’s last European Cup, Germany will try to keep his legacy high by starting off the tournament strong, with the hope of winning a fourth cup.

Meanwhile, Scotland is just making their 4th Euro Cup appearance and with only two victories before, they will try to stay positive after drawing Erling Haaland’s Norway 3-3, plus a sleeper team in Finland 2-2 in the past 6 months. 

Ranked 9th in Europe, Germany will be looking to battle back after two tough losses against Austria, 2-0, plus Turkey, 3-2, against a Scotland team, ranked 19th in the continent, that is just finding their footing in these big tournaments.

Germany Preview

Germany, the 4-time World Cup winners, will be able to get their players on track in this match after some tough times. Thomas Mueller, with 45 goals in 129 caps, will be one of the key cogs on this team and help youngsters Leroy Sane, 8 goals for Bayern Munich in 2023-24, or Jamal Musiala, 10 goals for Bayern, play bigger roles for the team. 

Manuel Neuer, with 240 games without allowing a goal, will continue to live his name as one of the top 5 keepers in the world by aiming for another clean sheet against Scotland. 

Along with this, another key player from their 2014 World Cup victory, Toni Kroos, with 109 caps and 12 goals plus 16 assists, will help Thomas Mueller in the middle and create chances for captain Illkay Gundogan, with 18 goals in 77 caps.

Germany Probable Starting XI:  Manuel Neuer (GoalKeeper), Joshua Kimmich, Jonathan Tah, Antonio Rudiger, Maximilian Mittelstadt (Defenders); Toni Kroos, Illkay Gundogan, Robert Andrich (Mid Fielders); Florian Wirtz, Kai havertz, Jamal Musiala (Forwards)

Scotland Preview

Many players in Scotland are still looking to make their mark in these big tournaments and will rely upon their captain Andy Robertson, one of the best defenders for Liverpool, to help push the ball forward for scoring opportunities. 

Scott McTominay, with 7 goals in the Euro Cup Qualifiers, will be massively important in trying to score goals and create pressure to free up guys like 28-year-old Lyndon Dykes, who had 1 goal with 2 assists in the qualifiers. 

John McGinn, with 3 goals and 3 assists in all international competitions, is another key player who can play a very important role behind McTominay and help create an upset or two in this tournament.  If all these guys play at their maximum level and Lawrence Strickland can reach his full potential in goal-scoring, Scotland can put up a good number of goals.  

Scotland Probable Starting XI: Angus Gunn (GoalKeeper); Anthony Ralston, Jack Hendry, Grant Hanley, Kieran Tierney, Andrew Robertson (Defenders); Ryan Christie, Billy Gilmour, Callum McGregor, John McGinn (Mid Fielders); Lawrence Shankland (Forward)

This marks Scotland's 4th appearance in the Euro Cup, but their first after a five-tournament absence. German captain Ilkay Gundogan, a two-time World Cup veteran, is leading his side for the first time and will have guidance from experienced teammates like Thomas Mueller or Manuel Neuer to get them past this challenge. 

Their mixture of young and old talent is something Scotland's captain Andrew Roberston, the sole leader responsible for guiding Scotland this far, will have to take into account. With Germany's variety of goal-scoring options, it could become a lopsided affair for the Scottish defenders if the entire German National Team is in top form.
