A Scotland v England match hardly needs any spicing up, but if you want to add even more excitement to Tuesday's 'friendly' Winner have an exclusive price boost for new customers to enjoy on the game.

New Winner Sports customers can back England to beat Scotland on Tuesday night at enhanced odds 4/1, as opposed to the standard odds of 11/10 at the time of writing.

International friendlies can often be a bit of a let down in terms of entertainment, but matches between Scotland & England tend to be more lively affairs. Plenty of punters will be tuning in to the action at 20.00 on ITV 1 hoping to see some committed tackling and end to end action between the home nations.

The Hosts

Scotland secured a vital victory in Euro 2016 qualification when beating Republic of Ireland 1-0 at Celtic Park on Friday night to remain firmly in the hunt for a finals berth in France. Group D is now wide-open with Poland top of the pile and Scotland, Ireland and Germany all trailing by three points, so there looks to be plenty more twists and turns to come.

Gordon Strachan has overseen eight wins and three draws in his 16 matches as Scotland manager and his squad will be looking to get one over on the auld enemy. He is likely to bring in some new faces to test their mettle ahead of some important competitive fixtures, with a fiery game against England the ideal environment.

Former England international Terry Butcher is anticipating a ferocious contest in Glasgow "It will be a massive test, huge. If the England team and supporters think this is going to be comfortable, a nice quiet friendly, they have got another thing coming!" Butcher told BBC Sport.

The Visitors

England's Euro 2016 qualification campaign is working out to be somewhat more straightforward than Scotland's after the Three Lions registered a fourth successive victory by beating Slovenia 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday. Roy Hodgson's side are already six points clear in Group E and it's hard to see them losing a game before the end of the process.

West Brom's Saido Berahino didn't get any game-time on Saturday, but is expected to feature in some capacity against Scotland with Roy Hodgson also likely to experiment with some of his new squad additions. Danny Welbeck continued his excellent scoring form for his country so will probably retain his starting berth alongside Wayne Rooney up-front, with the midfield and defence perhaps seeing the majority of changes.

England are expected to have enough quality to come out on top which is reflected in the match odds, but if you're confident it will be an away win then head over to winner to back the Three Lions at 4/1 when you open a new account.
