Scotland can be pleased with the start they have made to qualifying with three wins, two draws and one defeat although they know it is all still to play for. They have now won back-to-back group games defeating Moldova and Austria 1-0. At home, the Scots have lost just one of their last ten winning five of these.
Israel are also in the hunt for the second spot sitting one behind Scotland ahead of this game with leaders Denmark some seven points clear. It is just two defeats in their last seven and these came against Portugal and Denmark. On the road, they have won three of their last five and the other two were those defeats previously mentioned.
Scotland vs Israel: Match Stats
These sides have met four times in the last two years and three of them have finished all-square and the other by one goal so these sides know each other well and there’s little to choose between them. The draw looks the best bet in these circumstances a result that would benefit the home side as they hold a slim advantage.
Neither side are blessed with world-class attacking talent while their strengths tend to life in defensive organization. As we have already concluded the draw backing that result and under 2.5 goals (covering 0-0 and 1-1) appeals at those prices.
