Germany v Scotland: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Hosts Germany raise the curtain on the 2024 European Championship and they will be hoping to make a winning start in front of a packed-out Allianz Arena against Group A rivals Scotland.

Germany have fallen way below expectations in recent major tournaments, crashing out in the round of 16 against England at Euro 2020 while enduring group-stage exits in the last two World Cup’s.

However, hopes are high for Germany in front of their own supporters as they aim to win Group A at the expense of Scotland, Hungary and Switzerland.

The Tartan Army have never made it out of the group stage of the European Championship and they will be hoping to break to new ground in Germany.

Germany v Scotland team news

Germany team news

There was no place in the Germany squad for the likes of Mats Hummels, Leon Goretzka, Julian Brandt, Karim Adeyemi or Marco Reus, with manager Julian Nagelsmann likely to deploy a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Toni Kroos, who will retire after the tournament, will hold the fort in midfield with Ilkay Gundogan set to play directly behind striker Kai Havertz.

After strong seasons in the Bundesliga, Jamal Musiala and Florian Wirtz should feature alongside Gundogan while a lack of defensive options means Joshua Kimmich is likely to play at right-back.

Manuel Neuer is expected to start in goal with Antonio Rudiger and Bayer Leverkusen's Jonathan Tah the likely centre-back partnership.

Scotland team news

Nathan Patterson, Ben Doak, Aaron Hickey, Jacob Brown and Lewis Ferguson were all prevented from travelling to Germany due to injury while Lyndon Dykes has been ruled out following a training ground injury. 

Captain Andrew Robertson has survived an injury scare and is set to play at left-wing-back in order to have more license to get forward. He will be key, as will Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn and fellow middle man Scott McTominay of Manchester United.

Manager Steve Clarke is likely to play with two No.10s due to a lack of wingers in the squad and their only two recognised striking options are Lawrence Shankland and Che Adams.
