Scotland defender Christophe Berra believes that all the pressure is on the Czech Republic ahead of Tuesday's crunch Euro 2012 qualifiers.

Craig Levein's side take on world champions Spain and have to equal or better the Czech's result against Lithuania to earn a playoff spot for next year's finals.

While the Scots are not expected to get anything out of their game against the World Cup winners, Berra believes that Lithuania could still do them a favour.

"It's not an easy game for the Czechs," Berra told PA Sport. "Lithuania have beaten them already in this campaign.

"We have the points on the board just now so the pressure is on them really - they are the ones who need to get a win or at least a draw.

"It will be a funny game (in Lithuania). There probably won't be much of an atmosphere. It is not a great stadium and the pitch won't be the greatest so anything can happen."

Scotland's last appearance in a major international tournament was at the 1998 World Cup.
