After four consecutive home defeats, Israel receives a visit to Scotland on October 11 at 19:45. The match takes place in Haifa and the morale in the hosts’ camp is not high. There are also last minute problems to guests who are without the scorer Leigh Griffiths.
Scotland does not have a bad generation available, even though it missed the qualification of the final tournament. With experienced gatekeepers in the gate, McLeish has a choice of 11 competitive. Mulgrew, Tierney and Robertson have high quality in the defensive, while in the middle we have the talent of Armstrong, Forrest and Snodgrass. In addition, Johnny Russell has scored 9 goals for Sporting Kansas City this season and may be dangerous in Israel. Scotland has superior physical qualities to its adversary.
Scotland has three points in the group after the victory with Albania (2-0), while Israel lost surprisingly, 0-1, in front of the same opponent. With 4 wins in the last 10 matches, Scotland has lost just two of the last five away games and is a strong nut that will be carefully organized in the defensive and will attempt to speculate fixed phases and counterattacks.
But the most dangerous player on the pitch evolves in the camp of Israel: Moanes Dabbur has scored 6 goals in its last 4 matches at FC Salzburg, and the hosts have all the reasons to run for victory in order to resume in Haifa. The last results in front of their fans were very modest, with 4 consecutive failures and one goal scored in these matches. Romania imposed 2-1 on Israel’s land, and the days when Benayoun and Ben Haim scared Europe seem to be far off.
Only 4 players in the bout have more than 30 national team selections and lack of experience, and the scale will tell the word in favor of the Scottish athletic team. The odds for the victory of the guests deserve to be tried, although the best value gives the result of equality. Tomer Hemed knows his opponents in the Premier League, where he played for Brighton. The striker will be the owner of the host gear. Both teams scored in just one of Scotland’s last 10 matches but Thursday they are likely to see goals on both sides. The match counts for the second round of the third group of the League of Nations.
PREDICTION: X2 @ 1.41
