Worth mentioning: Serbia managed to earn a point from their visit to Turkey for a Nations League match in October, but they are without a win in six matches. Serbia eliminated Norway at the semis of the Euro 2021 qualifying promotions only in extra-time thanks to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic brace. None of their last four matches was won by the host nation. Two of Serbia’s last five clashes resulted in over 2,5 goals, as three saw both involved countries to score.
Scotland are coming into this game on the back of two consecutive 1:0 triumphs over Slovakia and Czech Republic and unbeaten in eight straight clashes. They did not concede more than a goal during that streak and are on a run of keeping a clean sheet in each of the last three meetings. Scotland also needed extra-time in their semi-final encounter against Israel, and prevailed only after penalty shoot-out. Just one of their last five outings featured over 2,5 goals, as two witnessed goals at both ends.
