Scotland v Northern Ireland: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Scotland suffered a chastening defeat in the Netherlands on Friday, spurning chances before falling foul to the Oranje's ruthlessness in front of goal and succumbing to a 4-0 defeat in Amsterdam.

Things were more favourable for Northern Ireland, who belied their lack of experience as a side, with a team with an average age of 23.5 battling to a 1-1 draw away in Romania.

Unlike the Scots, they do not have a place at the Euros to build for and Michael O'Neill looks to be trying to regenerate his squad by favouring youth.

It is a different story for Steve Clarke, whose side meet Germany in the opening match of this summer's Finals and may feel they need a performance after the Dutch defeat extended their winless run to six, conceding 18 times during that time.

The pair last met in March 2015, with Scotland's Christophe Berra scoring the only goal in a 1-0.

In fact, the Scots are unbeaten in the last six meetings, winning 3-0 in the 2011 Nations Cup. That is an outlier, as the other games in that run all featured under 2.5 goals.

Scotland team news

Clarke named arguably his strongest available side in Amsterdam and may use Tuesday's match as a chance to experiment.

Lewis Ferguson has shone for Bologna in Serie A this season and could be handed a start, while Che Adams and Lyndon Dykes will be hoping to get the nod up front after Lawrence Shankland was given his chance on Friday.

Northern Ireland team news

O'Neill may see the game as another chance to offer some of his youngsters a chance, with Dundee defender Aaron Donnelly and St Mirren midfielder Caolan Boyd-Munce both in line for their debuts.
