Scotland vs Israel Betting Tips & Predictions
Scotland have not qualified for a European Championship since 1996 and the supporters have seen their national side in the doldrums for several decades, although there’s a glimmer of hope under Steve Clarke when it comes to reaching the Euro 2020 finals which are scheduled to be played in the summer of 2021.
The Scots are in Path C when it comes to securing a place at Euro 2020 and that means a clash against Israel at Hampden Park before a trip to either Norway or Serbia depending on whether the Home Nation team are successful.
Reasons for our Scotland vs Israel Betting Tips
Our prediction is that Scotland will find things a good deal tougher than the odds suggest, with bet365 making them betting favourites to the extent that they’re odds-on to secure victory in ninety minutes, although there’s little to press their claims to win this clash.
The two teams recently met in a Nations League clash and Israel managed to land a 1-1 draw, so our betting tip is going to be on the visitors in the Asian Handicap betting market with half a goal start.
It means that if they’re able to keep things tight and claim at least a draw in normal time, then we’ll win with this bet, with home advantage hardly counting for much considering that Hampden Park will be empty.
Bet on Israel in the Asian Handicap Betting Market
Israel are not complete no-hopers despite the fact that they have never qualified for a European Championship, with Willibald Ruttensteiner remaining in caretaker charge and being encouraged by the performance in the second half in Glasgow.
Eran Zahavi is a striker who has scored lots of goals at international level and Partizan midfielder Bibras Natkho is also a wily operator. While Scotland will have players returning after several key members of personnel missed the recent clash, we’re still happy to side with the visitors to put up a proud performance.
