Israel vs Scotland Prediction & Match Preview



28 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

Israel and Scotland take on each other at Sammy Ofer Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. 

Israel are on a three-game losing run in all competitions, with the team kicking off their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-0 loss to Denmark. 

The Israelis are desperate to grab something from Sunday’s qualifier, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team.

Despite failing to impress in the defeat to Denmark, Hoffenheim attacker Dabbur should keep his place up front alongside Zahavi. 

The Scotts, on the other hand, showed character in their opener, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with Austria. 

Men to watch in the away team will be Andy Robertson and Scott McTominay. Anyhow, a close match is on the cards in Haifa, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score.

Team News:

Despite using Scott McTominay in midfield on Thursday night, Clarke may select the Manchester United man in his back three on Sunday.

With Jack Hendry dropping out of the side, that would allow Kenny McLean, Callum McGregor or Che Adams to come into the starting lineup.

Israel boss Ruttensteiner will consider handing an opportunity to Shon Weissman, who could take the place of Munas Dabbur.

Depending on whether Ruttensteiner switches to a back four, midfielder Neta Lavi is an alternative to Joel Abu Hanna.

Israel possible starting lineup:
Marciano; Elhamed, Tibi, Hanna; Dasa, Natkho, Peretz, Solomon, Menachem; Weissman, Zahavi

Scotland possible starting lineup:
Marshall; McTominay, Hanley, Tierney; O'Donnell, Christie, McGinn, Armstrong, Robertson; Adams, Dykes
