When Scotland hosts Israel in the next round of 2022 World Cup qualifiers, they will be looking to add three points to their tally. They enter this game in second place with 11 points, while Israel is in third place with 10 points.
The Scots resurrected their campaign with two straight wins over the international break, and they'll be hoping to keep their dreams alive in this critical match. They've kept three clean sheets in their previous five games, but three of their last six have seen them concede two or more goals. They've had a tremendous run at home, winning six of their past nine World Cup qualifiers and keeping six clean sheets.
Israel are coming off a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of group leaders Denmark. They'll want to look at this game as a winnable contest, as they've won three of their last five games. Israel, on the other hand, will have to solve its defensive woes after conceding two or more goals in three of its last four matches. They've only kept one clean sheet in their last five games, but they've scored three or more goals in three of them.
In fact, they've scored more than two goals in each of their last six games. Israel has won three of their four World Cup qualifying matches, scoring three or more goals in each of those victories. They will not be able to play at full strength because of injuries to important players.
Scotland has the advantage of playing at home and has performed well in recent matches. They come into this game on a hot streak and will give Israel a run for their money. Israel are good scorers as well, and will put up a strong fight to finish second. Scotland is still the better team at home, and I believe they will win this game.
Kickoff Time: The game will go down tomorrow at 5PM Nigerian time.
