Scotland value at 14/5 to beat England

Scotland look worth a punt at a standout 14/5 with Boylesports to win their international friendly against arch rivals England  at Celtic Park tonight (8pm KO, Live on ITV1).

This game, which has been dubbed the “Battle Of Britain”, will be far from friendly and Scotland will see it as a chance to take the scalp of their arch rivals in front of patriotic supporters.

With a sell-out 60,000 crowd expected the atmosphere will be hostile, and Gorodn Strachan’s side will definitely be up for the battle.

Indeed, they palyed very physically in their latest game when beating Irlenad 1-0 and similar tactics could well see them rattle England.

They are also improving under Strachan and have secured seven points from nine in their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign since going down 2-1 to Germany in the opening game where they put up a tremendous battle.

England boss Roy Hodgson has also played down the significance of this fixture and is likely to make wholesale changes to his starting XI, and I can’t help but feel that the Three Lions will get turned over in what promises to be a titanic battle.

Shaun Maloney has netted in Scotland’s last two games, and that makes him look worth a wager at 11/2 with bet365 and Paddy Power in the anytime scorer market.
