Israel vs Spain
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group G)
Date: Monday, 9th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Teddi Malcha Stadium.
Spain removed all doubts in the battle for the top spot in the group a month ago when they dispatched Italy quite comfortably 3-0 at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Can La Furia Roja end the campaign in a glorious fashion and pick up points from the visit to Jerusalem against a struggling Israel side on Monday evening at Teddi Malcha Stadium?
Elisha Levy’s men have been struggling a lot to find goals in the most recent fixtures as they lost each of their last three qualifiers to nil against the likes of Albania, FYR Macedonia and Italy.
This sees them sitting at a disappointing fourth position in what has been yet another dismal campaign for their national squad.
The visitors have, on the other side, been ruthless winning seven of their eight qualifying matches and netting as many as 32 goals during the process.
September’s fixtures saw the Spaniards notching 11 goals past Italy and Liechtenstein and we would not be shocked to see them maintaining the impressive attacking form against the struggling defense of Israel’s.
Israel vs Spain: Head to head
La Furia Roja have entirely dominated this match-up over the history winning four of five meetings with Israel.
The clash from this qualifying term saw a comprehensive 4-1 victory for the team led by Julen Lopetegui at Estadio Municipal El Molinon in Gijon.
Israel vs Spain: Prediction
Israel lost two and drew one of their last three home outings with the likes of Moldova, Albania and FYR Macedonia.
This is more than enough for us to call “Spain to win to nil” a stand-out bet at the odds of 5/4.
