Betting Tip: @ 13/8 with bet365

Scotland will welcome Northern Ireland to Hampden Park for an international friendly encounter, as both sides prepare for crucial upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Gordon Strachan’s Scots will aim to take a big step closer to securing qualification for next year’s tournament in France, as they contest Group D whipping boys Gibraltar.

Meanwhile, Michael O’Neill’s visitors will soon face Finland, after incredibly climbing to second position in their group, although a clash with Scotland is first up for the Group F high-flyers.

Strachan will hope Blackburn Rovers frontman Jordan Rhodes can convert his club form on to the international stage, and he is a best priced 13/8 to strike anytime in his latest international outing.

The in-form Championship centre forward has impressively netted 16 times already this current campaign, and he is set to lead the line for his country yet again against British Isles rivals Northern Ireland.

Alongside the rampant Rovers striker in the Scotland attacking ranks is Sunderland poacher Steven Fletcher, who is also a 13/8 chance with Bet365 to score anytime.

The Black Cats attacker hasn’t had as spectacular a season in front of goal as his strike partner Rhodes, but he has managed to slot in four Premier League strikes.

Shaun Maloney will also be keen to continue his recent rampant form, after his sublime effort helped sink the Republic of Ireland in Scotland’s previous Group D qualifier.

Menacing Maloney is a 10/3 chance with Bet365 to secure another international strike in his latest appearance, having slotted in four goals for Wigan Athletic so far this term.

For the visitors, Kyle Lafferty will return to Glasgow after previously spending four controversial seasons with struggling outfit Rangers, although the striker left on bad terms in 2012.

The towering targetman clinched three consecutive SPL titles during his time at Rangers, but is sure to receive a hostile reception on his return to the country, and he is a 9/1 chance with Bet365 to open proceedings at Hampden Park.

Both nations have plenty of astute attacking threat on show for this friendly clash, as Scotland and Northern Ireland hope to gain momentum ahead of vital upcoming qualifying encounters.
