Both nations finished their Euro 2024 qualifying campaigns having scored 17 goals across their eight matches, each averaging more than two goals per game.

Scott McTominay was Scotland’s surprise star goal scorer across their successful qualification, finishing the campaign with seven goals from eight games, a tally only bettered by serial scorers Harry Kane, Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku.

The Scot has a knack for scoring important goals in recent times, notably bagging both goals in Scotland’s memorable win over Spain 12 months ago, whilst also popping up so often to score when Manchester United need it most, including bagging a goal and an assist in their FA Cup quarter final against Liverpool last weekend.

Netherlands head into tonight’s friendly with Scotland having won five of their last six games in all competitions ahead of this, their first match of the calendar year.

The strong run of form was enough to see Ronald Koeman’s side survive a brief scare by Greece, who occupied the second qualifying spot in Group B for much of the campaign before the Dutch secured qualification, winning six of their eight matches.

This summer’s Euros, hosted by neighbours Germany, will be 1988 European champions’ third consecutive major tournament having surprisingly missed on back-to-back Euros and World Cup towards the end of last decade.

Tonight’s match will be the first of four pre-Euros friendlies the Dutch have scheduled, with the side heading to Frankfurt on Tuesday night to take on Germany, before they match up against Canada and Iceland in June, with both matches taking place in Rotterdam.

The Oranje have been drawn into Group D this summer, and will kick off their campaign Hamburg against either Wales or Poland, before meeting France, whom the Dutch lost twice to in qualifying, in Hamburg and finishing the group phase in Berlin against Austria.

Scotland in full swing of their preparations for the second consecutive Euros, having not previously qualified for a major tournament since the turn of the century, and feel optimistic heading into the summer.

Steve Clarke’s men will be looking to improve on their performance from three years ago when the Scots won just one point from their three group matches, crashing out of the tournament at the first stage, despite playing two of their games in Glasgow.

Scotland led their qualifying group for the majority of the campaign, winning their opening five matches, including a famous 2-0 victory over Spain 12 months ago, before eventually finishing second to three-time European champions.

Like the Dutch, tonight’s friendly will be the first of four ahead of this summer’s championships, with Northern Ireland visiting Glasgow for a local derby on Tuesday night, while in June, Clarke’s men will travel to Portugal to take on Gibraltar, before their final friendly at home against Finland.

The Tartan Army have been dealt an intriguing draw in Group A in this summer’s Euros in which they’ll be confident of reaching the knockout rounds, and take part in the tournament’s opening match on the 14th June in Munich against a Germany side desperately short of form and confidence.

The Scots will then travel to Cologne and Stuttgart to take on Switzerland and Hungary respectively, as they seek to reach the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time in their history.

The Dutch have won four of their last five matches against the Scots but were held to a 2-2 draw the last time the two sides met in a pre-Euro 2020 friendly.
