These two teams come into this game with the knowledge that a win would get them promoted to the second tier of European international football. Scotland’s win over Albania has made them favourites to win this group as they play Israel in this game, but the British side can’t afford to underrate this Israeli team in this game.
The Scots took the lead when both teams met in Israel in the reverse fixture, but they were still beaten by the Israelis 2-1. They would banking on home support to get them the win here, but Israel would come into this game with enough confidence to carry them through.
Israel’s consecutive home wins over Scotland and Albania has placed them at the top of this group and they come into this game in fine form. Apart from beating the other two teams in this group, they recorded a 7-0 win over Guatemala in a recent friendly game and they would feel they can cause problems for the Scots in this game.
