Israel vs Albania
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 14th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Toto Turner Stadium (Be’er Sheva).
Israel takes on Albania hoping to improve their position in the points table. The last match between these two sides, which was in the Nations League, ended in a win for Albania, the home team then. Israel currently sits at second to last place, in third-placed teams’ ranking list. A win here would do them a world of good.
Albania will try to use the previous result to their advantage and keep the momentum going. A golden opportunity has presented itself for the visiting team to go to the top of the table, and considering recent results, there’s a good chance Albanian players will be all smiles once the final whistle is blown.
Players to look out for the home team will be forward Munas Dabbur, midfielders Dor Peretz and Bibras Natkho. Albania will place their hopes on Taulant Xhaka and Jahmir Hyka.

Albania will somehow come out of this game with at least a point. Goals will be scored barely too.
