The Tartan Army have just one win across their last nine games.

The youthful Julian Nagelsmann, who once manned the Allianz Arena touchline during his brief tenure at Bayern Munich—which many felt ended very prematurely—returns to the “home” dugout on Friday evening. He will hope to provide the ideal beginning to Germany’s most recent attempt at European fame, Euro 2024.

Die Mannscahft are competing at their first Euros after the departure of Joachim Low. This summer’s championships are only their second competition since the 2014 FIFA World Cup-winning manager resigned at the conclusion of Euro 2020, which resulted in a heartbreaking last-16 loss to well-known opponents England.

Scotland were on an incredible five-match winning run in the Euro Qualifiers before losing all three of their later matches, including one against Spain, the 2008 and 2012 Euro champions. However, due to a recent collapse in their form, Steve Clarke’s team come to Munich with just one victory from their previous nine games across all competitions.

Key numbers you should know ahead of Euro 2024 clash

  • Germany’s offensive unit have scored 23 goals (1.5 per game) in the last two years. Furthermore, Scotland’s defence have conceded 22 goals (1.6 per game).
  • Over the last two years, Germany have allowed 24 goals (1.6 per game) while Scotland have scored 23 goals overall (1.6 per game).
  • Germany were in the negative with a goal-differential of -1. During that period, Scotland had a positive goal-difference with 23 goals scored and 22 goals given up (+1).
  • At a major competition, Germany and Scotland will play each other for the third time. The two prior meetings took place in the group phase of Euro 1992 (2-0) and the 1986 World Cup (2-1), both won by the Germans.
  • Actually, in their last 13 games against Germany, Scotland have only won once (D4 L8). That victory came in an April 1999 friendly in Bremen in which Don Hutchison scored the lone goal.
