Scotland host the Czech Republic in the Nations League tonight as both teams vie for top spot in their group.
Scotland lead Group 2 of League B, with their seven points from three games keeping them one ahead of the second-placed Czechs.
Jaroslav Silhavy’s side could overtake Steve Clarke’s with a win, however, something they failed to achieve again against the Scots last month as they were beaten 2-1.
It will be a tough task for the visitors against a Scotland team unbeaten in their last seven outings and buoyed by a Euro 2020 play-off semi-final victory over Israel last week – as well as a win against Slovakia on Sunday.
Here’s everything you need to know about the fixture this evening:
When is it?
The game will kick off at 7.45pm BST tonight.
How can I watch it?
The match will air live on Sky Sports Premier League. Subscribers can also stream it on Sky’s website and the Sky Go app.
What is the team news?
Scotland have a number of injured squad members, including Liam Cooper, Scott McKenna, Liam Palmer and Oliver Burke. Meanwhile, Stuart Armstrong’s recent positive coronavirus test result keeps him out, with Arsenal defender and Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie self-isolating due to contact with their Covid-positive team-mate.
The Czech Republic, meanwhile, have no reported injuries at the time of writing.
Scotland: Marshall, Robertson, Gallagher, Fleck, Considine, O’Donnell, McGinn, McLean, McTominay, Fraser, Dykes
Czech Republic: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kudela, Boril, Soucek, Kral, Masopust, Darida, Provod, Vydra
Czech Republic: 21/10
Scotland are in impressive form and have a lot of momentum behind them right now. Although the Czechs have fewer injuries to worry about, the hosts still have a strong XI and should get the job done. Scotland 2-1 Czech Republic.
