Croatia face Scotland in Glasgow on Tuesday night and only a win will do for both teams as they attempt to avoid their respective Euro 2020 campaigns ending early.

Group D is set to go down to the wire as The Tartan Army aim to finally make it past a major tournament group stage, while Croatia will be desperate to avoid elimination.

Scotland need to find some inspiration in front of goal, having failed to find the net during the tournament so far, and Lyndon Dykes will be hopeful he can provide it.

Similarly, Croatia veteran Ivan Perisic already has one goal to his name this summer and will be fired up to inspire his side to all three points.

We’ve picked out a Bet Builder with Betfair (18+ only) for Tuesday evening’s game – and things may well get spicy as two sides that never shirk a challenge prepare to do battle.

RAB selection 1: Ivan Perisic 1+ shot on target

Reasoning: The 32-year-old has had five shots on target in his last five competitive games for Croatia. Perisic has also had two of Croatia’s four shots on target at Euro 2020. We expect him to be a constant menace on the flank.

RAB selection 2: Lyndon Dykes 1+ shot on target

Reasoning: The QPR striker has had six shots on target in his last nine competitive appearances for Scotland and has three in his two appearances at Euro 2020 so far. Dykes has also averaged 0.8 shots on target per 90 minutes or club and country this season.

RAB selection 3: 2 or more cards for each team

Reasoning: Both sides need to win to have any chance of progressing to the knock-out stages. Croatia have picked up 27 yellow cards and one red in their 11 competitive games this season, while Scotland have picked up 24 yellows in their 11 games. Matters could get feisty with qualification on the line.
