THESE matches have been absent from the calendar for 14 years – and boy have they been missed.
From a betting viewpoint derbies are tough to call as form plays little part in proceedings.
That's the case at Wembley tonight. England clearly have better players starring at bigger clubs – but is their desire greater?
If it was a game between the bosses it would be a no-contest. Scotland's Gordon Strachan is talking it up while his counterpart Roy Hodgson is trying to treat it like a normal friendly.
If that's the case he could change half a team at the interval – and that would play into Scots hands.
If it wasn't for our shock win in Croatia last time out I'd be all over England but that result will have lifted confidence among the squad.
The build-up has centred around Wayne Rooney and he looks set to start despite doubts about his fitness. Rooney is 4-1 at Paddy Power and William Hill to bag the opener and 6-5 with BetVictor to net anytime.
For Scotland you can have 12-1 on Jordan Rhodes, Leigh Griffiths and Kenny Miller with various bookies.
If Scotland win it's likely to be by one as they've won their last two away games
by that margin. Hills go 17-2 for us to win by one.
That last meeting in 1999 ended in a 1-0 away victory thanks to Don Hutchison and a repeat of that scoreline pays 12-1 at Hills while just to score Scotland are 10-11.
Scotland to score
(10-11, William Hill)
