This summer’s European Championship qualifiers conclude on Tuesday with 11 matches taking place,

The action includes Scotland's clash at home to Georgia and a key match in Group F with leaders Austria taking on third-placed Sweden. 

We have looked at all of the matches to pick out five of the best value potential goalscorers.

Scott McTominay has been the unlikely star of Scotland's Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, scoring four of their seven goals, but his team-mate John McGinn may have the bigger influence on the Group A fixture at home to Georgia.

A few days ago the Scots might have settled for four points from their two June fixtures but, after beating Norway 2-1 in Oslo, they will be desperate to see off the Georgians at Hampden Park.

Georgia have taken four points from two games, including a 1-1 draw at home to Norway, and could be tough to break down.

But Scotland are sure to be flooding players forward with the aim of collecting maximum points and McGinn, who plays in a front three for his country, should be one of their main dangers.

McGinn set the ball rolling for the Scots in qualifying with the first goal in the 3-0 success at home to Cyprus and he has every chance of scoring in another massive home game.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's international retirement has left a huge void in the Swedish attack but there are some exciting players ready to take up the challenge, including Newcastle forward Alexander Isak, who will be key to their efforts to secure a positive result against Austria in Vienna.

Sweden are third in Group F and could do with taking at least a point off leaders Austria, who are four points better off having played one game more.

The Swedes have some excellent attacking players including Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski and Coventry striker Victor Gyokeres.

But Isak looks the biggest threat to Austria and can add to his nine-goal international tally.

Veteran strikers Sokol Cikalleshi and Armando Sadiku are the joint-top scorers in Albania's squad with 12 goals each, and they will be hoping to add to their tallies in the Group E clash away to Faroe Islands.

Cikalleshi seems to be getting better with age.

He has scored 10 of his 12 international goals during the last four years and looks like posing the biggest threat to the Faroes, who lost 3-0 at home to the Czech Republic on Saturday.

Edin Dzeko has been Bosnia Herzegovina's go-to man for several years and he can add to his 64-goal international tally in the Group J fixture at home to Luxembourg.

The 37-year-old was shutout during Bosnia's 3-0 weekend loss away to Portugal, but he should have better luck against Luxembourg, who have shipped six goals across their three matches.

Hungary will be looking to play on the front foot at home to Lithuania and an offensive approach should suit Freiburg attacker Roland Sallai, who could be among their goalscorers.

Sallai has bagged a respectable nine goals in 41 internationals and was part of the Freiburg squad which finished fifth in the Bundesliga this season.
