Steve Clarke faces the most important game of his reign as Scotland boss in this Hampden Euro 2020 playoff and Frankie Monkhouse expects an entertaining home win.

Dan Fitch thinks that the attacking talents of Norway and Serbia are bound to shine, as he previews some of the other Euro 2020 play-offs on Thursday.

He says: “It’s something of a pity that these sides have been drawn to face each other, as they are arguably the two strongest teams involved in the play-offs.”

Germany will concede while winning against Turkey, according to Dan as he preview’s Wednesday’s international friendlies.

He says: “Following their Nations League disappointment, Germany have lost just one of their subsequent 12 matches (W7 D4). In that run their only clean sheets have come against Belarus, Estonia and Northern Ireland.”
