Scotland is hosting Norway at Hampden Park in their final Euro 2024 qualifier, with Scotland having already secured their passage to next summer’s tournament.
Scotland won their first five games in the qualifying round, securing their place at Euro 2024 when Spain beat Norway 1-0, but have since lost to England, Spain, and France, needing an injury-time equalizer to snatch a draw in Georgia earlier this week.
While Scotland managed to nick a 2-1 win in Norway earlier in the qualification campaign, Norway will be without Erling Haaland this time due to a foot injury sustained during a friendly win over Faroe Islands on Thursday.
Scotland is already secure in second place in the group for Euro 2024 qualification, but there are seeding implications to the match. If they beat Norway by two goals or more, they will almost certainly be in pot two, while a one-goal victory, a draw, or a defeat will likely see them in pot three.
