Israel vs Denmark Prediction & Match Preview



Israel vs Denmark Prediction & Match Preview



25 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET World Cup Qual

Israel kick off their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a match against Denmark at their Bloomfield Stadium. 

Israel host Denmark with a limited number of fans, but Willi Ruttensteiner’s troops are still seen as underdogs in Thursday’s clash. 

It has to be noted that Israel were beaten by Denmark in each of the previous four meetings between the two national teams.

The Danes, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the Nations League defeat to Belgium. 

Despite the lack of minutes at Inter, Christian Eriksen made the cut and Barcelona attacker Martin Braithwaite will be yet another man to watch in the away team. 

Denmark are more of a team than Israel, and we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from the opener. In the previous meeting between two teams Denmark defeated Israel 2-0.

Team News:

Hjulmand could select the same Denmark side which pushed Belgium on away territory before the end of last year.

However, with a game in Austria concluding this three-game stretch, consideration will be given to resting players ahead of the trip to Vienna.

Joachim Andersen is in contention for a return to the centre of the backline after impressing for Fulham since the turn of the year.

After their morale-boosting win over Scotland last time out, Ruttensteiner is unlikely to make major alterations to his Israel side.

With Sheran Yeini not featuring in the squad, Joel Abu Hanna could be drafted into a back five marshalled by Celtic's Nir Bitton.

Israel possible starting lineup:
Marciano; Dasa, Bitton, Tibi, Hanna, Menachem; Natcho, Lavi, Solomon; Weissman, Zahavi

Denmark possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Maehle; Hojbjerg, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Wind
