SER Vs SCO Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Serbia and Scotland look to return to the land of the marquee competition.
For Serbia and Scotland, today’s showdown is an affair which can decide how the upcoming years unravel for them in the football fraternity. Having been out of the Euro for a mammoth time, either side will approach today’s playoff final as a defining moment in their journey at the global stage.
Unbeaten in their last 8 matches, Scotland make an advent into today’s forthcoming final having defeated Israel in the semi-finals. The tie went all the way down to penalties with the country eventually showing composure to prevail 5-3, a result which puts them on the cusp of making it into Euro 2020.
Elsewhere, Serbia were engaged in a more thrilling affair against Norway, a tie which needed extratime to determine the winner on the day. However, despite that triumph, the club has been in abysmal form across the course of this year with all of their five matches on familiar territory ending without a win in their favour.
SER Vs SCO Fantasy Probable Winner
Undefeated since October 2019, Scotland are looking to return to the Euro for the first time since 1978. Serbia meanwhile themselves have immense incentive to push hard for a win today as well with a triumph seeing them make it into the Euro for the first time as an independent country since 2006.
This has all the makings of an absolute thriller, an affair which will be an intoxicating brew. What works in Scotland’s favour is the fact that they have kept three cleansheets in their unbeaten spree, a defensive setup which will see the wind sway in their favour.

For Serbia, today’s encounter is going to be determined by their ability to stave away Scotland’s attacking plays and sweep them under the mat. It’s a gameplan which will solely rely on the myriad skill set of Marko Dmitrovic.
Giving the best of teams cold feet and leaving them barking up the wrong when encountering their defensive setup, Scotland have been sensational defensively off late. The club has not only maintained its shape and occupied pinch perfect positions but has closed out the ball extremely quickly.
Andrew Robertson has not only done all the dirty defensive work but has made his presence felt in attack as well to make him a must have pick for us. Kieran Tierney joins up with him while the attackingly inclined wingback, Darko Lazovic is our pick from the home side.
Despite Scotland’s exquisite form, even they’ll be extremely wary when coming across their Serbia attack. Laden with a bevy of worldclass attacking names, Serbia have an attacking juggernaut which can rip any side into shreds.
We begin with the selection of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic who scored twice for the club against Norway. Dusan Tadic had an assist on the day with Nemanja Maksimovic wrapping up the trio from the home team.
Given Serbia’s wavering backline, John McGinn can end up easily adding to his six goals and one assist. Callum McGregor has been in piquant touch as well, a player who has squared the ball for his counterparts by sending it across the face of the goal.
Aleksandar Mitrovic might be struggling for form in the Premier League but he’s been electric as ever for Serbia. He’s scored on 10 occasions for the side, a striker who has perfectly spearheaded his side’s attack.
Scotland meanwhile see us opt for the pick of Lyndon Dykes with him having scored twice in his side’s last five fixtures.
Captain And Vice-Captain
John’s six goals will see him step out as our side’s captain while Mitrovic is the vice-captain.
Dimitrovic, Lazovic, Andrew, Tierney, Tadic, Sergej, Nemanja, John, Callum, Mitrovic, Dykes
