How to watch Scotland v Northern Ireland for FREE – TV channel, live stream, kick-off time and friendly team news

STEVE CLARKE has told his Scotland stars they MUST halt their winless streak.

The national team has not won in their last SIX games – and conceded 18 goals along the way.

Granted some of those games have been against top class opposition in England, France, Spain and last week The Netherlands.

But it doesn’t make comfortable reading just three games from a major tournament.

Scotland can make amends against Northern Ireland on Tuesday and the boss has warned them to get more ‘streetwise’ on the big stage.

This time they’ll be backed by the Hampden roar and also a home crowd with the game now open to all on TV.

Host broadcasters Viaplay have struck a deal with the BBC to air Tuesday’s – and June’s clash with Finland – on free-to-air TV.

And that’s good news for campaigners pushing to bring the games back from behind paywalls and subscription channels.

Here’s all the details you need to see the game…

What time does Scotland v Northern Ireland kick off?

  • Scotland host Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland team on Tuesday (March 26).
  • The match kicks off at 7.45pm
  • It will be held at the National Stadium, Hampden Park.
  • Tickets are still available.

Is the Scotland v Northern Ireland game on TV? Can I watch it for free or live stream?

  • Scotland and Northern Ireland fans are spoilt for choice – the game is on THREE channels
  • Host broadcaster Viaplay Sports will show the game with the programme and build up starting at 7pm.
  • It is also available on terrestrial TV on BBC Scotland and BBC Three. Coverage begins at 7.30pm.
  • That means the game can be streamed on BBC iPlayer or on the Viaplay Sports player.

Team news

Steve Clarke is expected to cycle his squad for the game having used half a dozen substitutes against The Netherlands.

After choosing four goalkeepers in the squad for two friendlies and Angus Gunn playing 90 against the Dutch there is a chance Craig Gordon, Zander Clark or Liam Kelly will be afforded a chance between the sticks.

Up front Clarke also said his strikers would all be involved which hints at a starting berth for Lyndon Dykes or Che Adams after Lawrence Shankland‘s role in Amsterdam.

For the visitors Ross McCausland’s outside chance of making the second friendly of the double header has been ruled out by Michael O’Neill.

The Rangers winger was sent back to Ibrox with an injury with the GAWA hopeful he’d react to treatment to be involved at Hampden.
