Match Preview

Two national teams from the United Kingdom meet on the opening day of Group D in the UEFA Women's Euro 2017. The English girls, who finished third at the World Cup two years ago, are considered one of the favourites of the tournament, and should eventually fight for the trophy with Germany, Spain, Sweden, France and the hosts Netherlands. The Scots are less talented and much less experienced – this is their first Euros in history, as we remind in our England vs Scotland preview. They are clearly the underdogs here.

Both teams enjoyed very significant success in the qualifiers, with England's record standing at seven wins and a draw in eight fixtures. Remarkably, they scored 32 goals but only conceded once. The Scots, who arguably had the easiest group, also won seven matches, with 30 goals for and seven against. That shows us that both defences are quite solid, and that is important for our England vs Scotland predictions.

England vs Scotland Predictions and Betting Advice

The odds on the favourites are way too low, even though such an outcome is likely. The problem is that the Scots have a very decent defence, and they don't concede easily, while their attack is much less potent against superior opposition. That is why three of their last matches produced less than three goals, and that is an interesting indication for our England vs Scotland betting tips. With the odds on under 2.5 goals standing at 2.10, they look extremely tempting.
