England and Scotland are facing very different outcomes in Euro 2017 as we enter the last games of the group stages.

After England beat Scotland 6-0 in their first game, the Lionesses then defeated Spain 2-0, while Scotland were hard done by in their 1-2 against Portugal. Scotland’s only chance of getting through to the next round is to beat the Spanish, hope England defeat Portugal, and then it goes down to goal difference: a tough call given that Scotland are currently at -7, compared to Spain with 0 and Portugal are -1.

Whichever teams go through will face either France, Austria or Switzerland in the next round.

England v Portugal is on Channel 4 and Scotland v Spain is on More4, both at 19.30 (kick-off 19.45).
