Scotland vs Cyprus live stream: match preview

Scotland begin their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign today with a visit from Cyprus. Who will draw first blood in the quest to reach the finals in Germany next year?

Scotland’s appearance at Euro 2020 was their first since 1996 and only the third since the competition began in 1960, but they face a tough task to repeat the feat for next summer. Spain will be clear favourites to top Group A, while Erling Haaland will be keen to propel Norway to their first finals since 1990, and the Tartan Army just don’t have the world-class talent to match.

Scotland’s last competitive action came in the Nations League, with a goalless draw against Ukraine last September, but they’ll definitely fancy their chances here against Cyprus this afternoon – the last four ties between these two sides have ended 2-1 to Scotland. 

Cyprus are 110th in FIFA’s world rankings, nearly 70 places below their hosts, but Temur Ketsbaia's side will be out to prove they're not just here to make up the numbers. After a disappointing Nations League campaign, in which they managed to beat eventual group winners Greece but still finished bottom of the pile on goal difference, Cyprus have played just two friendlies, the last of which was a 3-2 away win against Israel. They also lost at home to Bulgaria, making this opening tie with Steve Clarke's Scotland particularly tough to call.  

Scotland vs Cyprus kicks off at 2pm GMT / 10am EDT today, Saturday 25th March, at Hampden Park. Make sure you know how to watch a Scotland vs Cyprus live stream.
