Scotland fans have been going through the emotions following their team in Germany - PA/Jane Barlow

Scotland are preparing for Sunday’s Euro 2024 crunch game with Hungary knowing a win would almost certainly see Steve Clarke’s side reach the last 16.

Scotland have never qualified for the knockout stages of a major tournament but a much-improved performance against Switzerland in their second Group A match has left them still in the running. That came after a heavy opening defeat by Germany.

They will have to make do without full-back Kieran Tierney, however, who has returned to Arsenal for assessment on a hamstring injury picked up against Switzerland.

Scotland’s potential route to the Euro 2024 final

By Oliver Blair
Despite a harrowing defeat against the hosts in the opening match of Euro 2024, a much more respectable 1-1 draw with Switzerland means the Scots could still qualify for the group stages, although first place is now firmly off the cards.

Most likely, Scotland would have to be victorious against Hungary on Sunday. The Hungarians were unlucky in their 2-0 loss against Germany, unable to convert the plethora of chances that fell their way.

Moreover, it was a slight touch on Barcelona’s Ilkay Gundogan which handed Germany a penalty and their first goal of the match. Their head coach, Marco Rossi, criticised the decision made by referee Danny Makkelie claiming it showed double standards in his officiating.

If Scotland finish second in their group:
A heavy defeat to Germany could see Switzerland fall to third place in Group A. In that case, Scotland would face second place of Group B, which for now is set to be Italy. In this scenario, Scotland could face England in the quarter-finals if they can progress and England top their group, before France in the semi-finals and Portugal in the final.

If Scotland qualify from third place:
Scotland making it out of the group stages via third place feels the most likely outcome. They would then face a Group winner, from either B, E or F, which could include Spain, Italy, Romania, Belgium or Portugal.

Spain are favourites to top Group B, but the others would also provide tough challenges for Scotland.
