Match Timings: Nov 13, 1:15 AM
Serbia is going head to head against Scotland at the Red Star Stadium on Thursday in UEFA European Championship qualifiers. The hosts are coming off a 2-2 against 10-man Turkey last month in the UEFA Nations League. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Aleksandar Mitrovic netted Serbia's goals, but Turkey dominated the second half and walked away with one point.
Serbia has won one game in the previous two meetings between the two sides and drawn the other. They last faced Scotland in 2013 and secured a 2-0 victory, thanks to a brace from Filip Djuricic. Serbia will be without Milos Veljkovic and Filip Djuricic. The national side has recalled their top players like Aleksandar Kolarov, Dusan Tadic, and Luka Jovic. Dorde Despotovic and Lazar Randelovic would be seen as debutants for Serbia on Thursday night.
Meanwhile, Scotland defeated the Czech Republic 1-0 last month in their Nations League 2020-21 encounter, courtesy of Ryan Fraser’s first-half strike. After achieving 10 points from 4 matches, the Scottish side occupies the top spot in Group B2, four points ahead of the Czech. In their last Euro Qualifiers, Scotland edged past Israel in the penalty shoot-out. Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay, Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson, Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, and Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney have all been included in the experienced side of Scotland.
