Israel – Free-scoring hosts out to extend fine run?

PSV Eindhoven’s Eren Zahavi scored a hat-trick on Wednesday as Israel (W2 D1 L1) notched their second win of this World Cup qualifying campaign, an emphatic 4-0 victory in Torshavn away to the Faroe Islands. That result lifted them above Scotland and into second place in Group F, level on points with Austria but boasting a superior goal difference ahead of the side’s pivotal clash on Sunday.

The Blue and Whites are enjoying something of a hot streak. That is now three wins in four (L1), netting a combined eleven times and at least three in each said win over Moldova, Montenegro and the Faroe Islands. Their self-belief will be further emboldened in the knowledge they are unbeaten in four head-to-head encounters in Israel, emerging 4-2 victors in a EURO 2020 qualifier the last time they played host to Austria.

Key Stat: Each of Israel’s last four internationals have seen a minimum of four goals in the match, with three of these resulting in Israeli victories.


Draw & Both Teams To Score



Austria – Das Team still riding EURO 2020 wave?

In the Moldovan capital of Chisinau on Wednesday, Austria (W2 D1 L1) recorded their first win since a valiant showing at EURO 2020. Franco Foda’s side bowed out at the quarter-finals but came agonisingly close to eliminating eventual champions Italy. That tournament will have given them a taste for more, and this Sunday could see them strengthening their case for a first World Cup qualification in 24 years.

Foda will wonder how his side didn’t manage to win by more than a modest 2-0 scoreline last time, after a predictably dominant display. It leaves them behind Israel on goal difference in third, with the irrepressible Danes seemingly out of reach even at this stage. Prior to EURO 2020 meanwhile, Austria had lost one of their last six away internationals (W4 D1). Though they are winless in four visits to Israel (D2 L2).

Key Stat: Five of the six goals these teams produced the last time they met in Israel (4-2 Israel win in March 2019) were scored by Eran Zahavi (3) and Marko Arnautovic (2).

Israel Vs Austria Betting Advice

Sunday will mark the fifth encounter between the countries this century. All four meetings during this period featured plenty of goals: each seeing both teams score while the latest two, both played out during EURO 2020 Qualifying, saw both teams trade high-scoring victories. Israel winning 4-2 at this very venue in March 2019, thus preserving their unbeaten status (W2 D2) as hosts in this particular fixture.


Israel vs Austria – Key Facts:

  • Having met in EURO 2020 Qualifying, both teams are well acquainted. The pair traded home wins on that occasion, Israel coming from behind to win 4-2 at this same venue.
  • All of Israel’s last four matches have seen at least four goals (19 in total). Israel recorded three wins in this spell, scoring 3+ goals in each victory.
  • The previous four meetings between the countries produced an average of 3.75 goals, with each of these games seeing both teams contribute at least one goal.


Austria created a bucket load of chances in Moldova in midweek but ran out modest 2-0 winners, while elsewhere, in the Faroe Islands, Israel scored four in a 4-0 rout. Consequently, the pair boast identical records (W2 D1 L1) ahead of Sunday. Therefore, with goals very much anticipated, there is every prospect of an entertaining score draw unfolding between sides locked in a three-way tussle for second in Group F.
