Israel vs Belarus Match Analysis & Prediction
12/09/2023 9:45 pm
After playing out draws in their previous matches, Israel and Belarus meet at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel-Aviv this Tuesday in a Euro 2024 qualifying tie.
Belarus’ hopes of mounting any late effort to threaten the top teo was all but ended through a disappointing goalless draw in Andorra on Saturday.
After the midway point of the qualifiers, Israel are well in the mix for a top two spot in what is looking increasingly like a three-horse race.
An impressive 1-1 draw in Romania may give them the edge going into the second half of the section, even though they are still down in third for the time being.
Romania have a potentially tricky affair with Kosovo on the same night, so Israel must get the job done here against a side they are expected to beat.
If they can beat the group’s weaker sides in their final matches, it makes the home games they have to come against Switzerland and Romania extremely enticing.
For Belarus, the disappointment of being unable to beat Andorra will leave a bitter taste, especially after a very fine victory over Kosovo in June.
That success raised hopes that they could potentially build some momentum and sneak into the conversation for a top-two spot in a wide-open section.
After just suffering a late collapse to Israel earlier in the group, new manager Carlos Alos would have seen this and the Andorra match as two winnable games.
Losing their opening three matches means wins are a must, and had they beaten Andorra they would now be just three points off a qualifying spot at the midway stage.
