Israel Prediction – Can Israel return to winning ways?

After promising so much in their opening three matches of Group G, Tuesday night’s hosts, Israel, have seen their results dip in alarming fashion which has resulted in them dropping down to 5th place and out of the reckoning for qualification to Euro 2020.

The hosts started with a 1-1 draw with Slovenia which was promptly followed by back-to-back wins against Austria 4-2 and a 3-0 win away from home at Latvia, but the wheels quickly fell off in their subsequent matches in the group.

Israel have lost 3 of their last 4 matches as they’ve fallen to defeats against Poland, Slovenia and Austria while gaining just 1 point from the last possible 12 on offer thanks to a 1-1 draw at home with North Macedonia.

It should be noted though that all 3 of Israel’s defeats to date have been away from home while on home soil at their National Stadium Ramat Gan, they are still unbeaten with a record of 1-2-0 6/4, along with possessing the leading goalscorer across all groups, striker Zahavi (10 goals).

Latvia Prediction – Can Latvia salvage any pride?

By comparison, Latvia’s Euro 2020 campaign has been a complete disaster as the visitors have lost all 7 of their matches so far in Group G, scoring just 1 goal for but conceding a total of 24 goals to date in what has been a wretched campaign.

Only poor San Marino (43 goals against) have concede more goals to date across all the groups than Latvia, while Tuesday night’s visitors have also lost their last 8 European qualifiers on the trot, scoring just 1 goal but shipping 25 goals in reply during this period.

Indeed, Latvia’s struggles continue way beyond this current Euro 2020 campaign as they’ve now had to endure a woeful stretch of 18 matches without a single win at this level, and this trip to face Israel with the top goalscorer, Zahavi, in their attacking ranks looks beyond them in this clash too.

9 of Latvia’s last 18 European qualifiers have also resulted in over 2.5 goals scored, and with Israel returning to home turf for this encounter, the home win and 3 goals scored looks quite likely.


Key-Facts – Israel v Latvia

  • Israel still remain unbeaten at home in Group G
  • Latvia have failed to win any of their last 18 matches in European qualifiers
  • Israel have won 5 of the 7 meetings to date against Latvia


Betting Tips Verdict

Israel won’t get a better opportunity than tonight to return to winning ways here.
