Israel vs Scotland Match Analysis and Prediction

After gaining a spot in the Euro 2020 for the first time, Scotland has a chance to finish off the UEFA Nations League on a high note. The side travels to Israel on Wednesday night with kickoff at 10:45 pm.

Scotland last won on penalties that saw the side promotion from League B Group 2 and qualify for the first time for the Euros. Israel’s poor run continues with only one win in their last eight international matches.

Israel’s chances for qualification were squandered after suffering a narrow 1-0 defeat to the Czech Republic on Sunday evening. A loss this Wednesday could see Willibald Ruttensteiner’s side could face possible relegation from the group. Their chances also rely on the result between the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

If Slovakia draws on Wednesday night, Israel will survive from relegation despite even if they lose to Scotland. The side will garner more points against Slovakia from their two matches against each other.

Israel will be heavily reliant on attacking options by Eran Zahavi with five goals from the last five United Nations League matches. Only Erling Haaland has more goals in this year’s competition.

Furthermore, the home side will be looking for their first home victory since this time last year when they defeated Latvia 3-1 in their Euro 2020 qualifiers. It will prove a major challenge with Scotland and their nine unbeaten streaks.
