Scotland odds: To win Euro 2020, how far will they go, top scorer and more
Steve Clarke has guided Scotland to their first major tournament since 1998, but just how far can the Scots go this summer at Euro 2020.
Scotland secured their spot at the competition after beating Serbia on penalties in their play off clash after 120 minutes of football left the two nations tied at 1-1.
Ryan Christie thought his goal had won his side the game but Luka Jovic equalised in the dying seconds of the 90 minutes. Goalkeeper David Marshall proved to be the hero on the night as his penalty save secured their spot at their first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup and sent the Scottish fans into party mode as they flooded the streets to celebrate the achievement.
But just how far can they go in the competition this summer having been drawn in a difficult group alongside their bitter rivals, England?
Scotland Euro 2020 odds
This is the first time in 23 years that Scotland have made it to a major tournament so they are understandably at a huge 150/1 to win the competition.
There is no doubt the odds are stacked up against the Scots this summer, even for them to make it out of their group. Having made it to the competition through the play off stages, Scotland were placed in Pot 4 of the draw and are the lowest-ranked side in Group D.
Scotland’s potential path to Euro 2020 final
Scotland were drawn into Group D of Euro 2020 which will see them play their bitter rivals, England, 2018 World Cup runners-up, Croatia, and the Czech Republic.
Clarke’s side kick off their Euro 2020 group stage against the Czech Republic, before games against England and then Croatia. The game against the Three Lions will be held at Wembley Stadium, however, their other two games will be played in Glasgow at Hampden Park.

If Scotland win Group D
If Scotland were to win Group D, this would be their route through to the final.
Last 16: The second-placed side from Group F (Hungary, Portugal, France or Germany) in Dublin on June 29.
Quarter-finals: The winner of Last-16 match 8, which is played between the winner of Group E (Spain favourites) and the third-place team in A, B, C or D, likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Denmark, Ukraine, Austria or one of England’s Group D opponents.
Semi-finals: The same groups are included for the semi-final but with Group C winners (Netherlands favourites) potentially involved.
Last 16: The second-placed Group E side in Copenhagen, which could be any of Spain, Sweden, Poland and Slovakia in Copenhagen on June 8th.
Quarter Finals: The winner of Last-16 match 6, which is played between the winner of Group F (which includes Portugal, Germany and France) and the third place in A, B or C, likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Denmark, Ukraine and Austria.
Semi-finals: The winner of that Quarter Final will play the winner of Quarter Final Match 1 which could include the winner of Group A or Group B (expected to be Italy and Belgium).
If Scotland finish third in their group and do enough to be one of the top teams, they would play the winner of Group E and then join the path they’d take if they won Group D (talk about over-complicating things!
Scotland Golden Boot odds
Southampton’s Che Adams is Scotland’s favourite to get his hands on the Golden Boot trophy this season and can be found at a huge 100/1 with BetVictor. Adams has only recently declared himself to play for the Scotland national side and opened his account for his country in their World Cup Qualifiers game in April against the Faroe Islands.
