“Scotland – Germany 2016 European Championship Qualification – Match Preview (7 September 2015) Germany travels to Scotland for the duel in Hampden Park, Glasgow. The World Champions top’s Group D with 16 points from the first seven matches. “Die Mannschaft” has the chance to qualify for the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament finals with a win, if Republic of Ireland losses to Georgia in their home ground in Dublin. Not an easy away game for Joachim Loew’s man with the Scots needing desperately a win: with just 11 points and after losing to Georgia, now they have to defeat Germany, to maintain any minimal chances of reaching Euro 2016. In the opening group game, Germany’s first competitive match as world champions, Thomas Müller secured a 2-1 win for the Panzer’s. In sixteen games against Germany, Scotland record four wins, five draws and seven losses. In the last seven competitive matches against Scotland, Germany has won five and draw the other two. Since a 2-1 loss to Belgium on September 6-th 2013, Scotland won their last four competitive home games, including three out of three Euro 2016 qualifying matches. Referee of the match is Björn Kuipers from Netherlands. Team news Grant Hanley returns to the Scotland’s defence. Injured Marco Reus is out of the Germany squad, along with a number of other key players. Emre Can is likely to start as a right-back, while Bellarbi will play in front with Ozil, Muller (18 goals in his last 26 appearances) and a reborn Gotze. Betting tip – AH GERMANY -1. 50 On paper, Germany is the favourite team to claim the maximum points. Germany have not lost away to Scotland since the 1930s. The three points would be a step toward the qualification to the Euro 2016 finals. The nine goals scored in the last two away games in Group D, we predict The Panzers will win by two or more goals.”   Click HERE]]>
