Luxembourg vs Scotland Prediction
Luxembourg are a much weaker side than Scotland on paper, and it won’t be surprising if the Scots dominate the game from kick-off.
Graham Clarke would like his side to punch above their weight in the upcoming Euros and a win against Luxembourg would serve as a perfect morale-booster.
We predict that Scotland will win this tie comfortably.
Prediction: Luxembourg 0-3 Scotland
