World Cup Qualifiers (Europe)

Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Sammy Ofer Stadium.

A Group F shuffle on the table as 2nd place Israel take on 3rd place Austria this weekend.

Israel registered a commanding 4-0 win over Faroe Islands in the last match and they will be looking to pick up from where they left off.

Eran Zahavi has scored 4 goals in the last World Cup Qualifiers including a hat trick against Faroe Islands. The PSV striker will be looking to increase his tally of 29 goals for his country.

Austria cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win against Moldova in the previous WCQ match. They had 70% possession in the match and 13 shots on goal. They’ll want to maintain the same intensity against the Asian side who are playing in the European qualifiers.

Both teams have 3 wins in their last five matches and look almost evenly matched with Austria being ever so slightly better.
