Israel vs Scotland Prediction: Nations League Match on 18.11.2020
It has been a memorable week for the Scottish national side, and they will be looking to continue their excellent run by achieving promotion in the Nations League next week.
Nations League Preview
It’s fair to say that the confidence within the Scotland camp will be at an all-time high coming into this fixture, as they managed to qualify for their first major tournament in over 20 years last week. That feel good feeling will continue this week, as Scotland will be hoping to get the three points that they need to ensure that they will be playing with the world’s best in the next Nations League campaign. Scotland have been in excellent form throughout this competition, as they have won three of their five fixtures.
However, they were dealt a blow in their last game, as they were beaten by Slovakia. Slovakia were able to take all three points in their first game back on home soil after qualifying for the European Championships themselves. Jan Gregus scored the only goal in the game, as Scotland were forced to wait a while longer to celebrate promotion from their Nations League group.
Israel will come into this game hoping to avoid relegation from the Nations League. Only a point separates themselves and Slovakia at the bottom of the group, which means that they will be looking for the three points to ensure that they won’t be playing in Group C when the Nations League is next played. It was a disappointing result in their last international fixture as they were beaten by the Czech Republic. That defeat meant that they were unable to build on their only win in the Nations League so far, which came against Slovakia.
Israel vs Scotland Head To Head
This will be the third meeting between these sides in as many months, with both of the previous matches ending in draws. However, the most recent of the meetings came in the Euro qualifying semi-finals, as Scotland were able to edge out their opponents in a penalty shootout. Israel will be looking for a layer of revenge in this fixture.
Israel vs Scotland Prediction
The fact that these two sides have already played out two draws in the past couple of months highlights how evenly matched they are. This match will be another close affair, and we expect this match to end in another draw between the teams.
