Scotland Preview – Will the Scots make it three wins on the spin?

Scotland are having a fine 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign, winning half of their six games so far. The Danes are romping away at the top after six wins from six, but the Scots are sitting pretty in second on 11 points.

Scotland have won three, drawn two and lost one of their opening six qualifiers. Steve Clarke’s men drew with Austria and Israel in their opening two before beating Faroe Islands and losing to Denmark. Scotland bounced back with two massive victories, edging past Moldova and Austria.

Our betting prediction:
Scotland to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1257 GMT, Friday 8 October)

Scotland are right back in the mix after taking nine points from a possible 12, and Clarke’s boys will be desperate to keep that momentum ticking with another positive result here.

Israel Preview – Can the Israelis respond from a heavy defeat?

Willi Ruttensteiner’s Israel fell to a heavy defeat to Denmark in their last qualifier, with the Danes putting on a five-star show in a 5-0 romp in Copenhagen. Prior to that, the Israelis had won three of their opening five.

Israel’s two defeats have come to the Danes, and they have taken ten points from their other four qualifiers. The Chosen Team have seen off Moldova, Faroe Islands and Austria and drawn with the Scots.

Israel will leapfrog Scotland into second with victory in Glasgow on Saturday. They then face Moldova, Austria and Faroe Islands in their last three, so they would be the favourites to land second. The away victory in this one is available at 16/5.


Scotland vs Israel Betting Advice

These two nations have squared off six times in various competitions in the past three years. In the reverse World Cup qualifier back in March, Clarke’s side batted hard to leave Tel Aviv with a 1-1 draw – Ryan Fraser hit the equaliser in the second half.

Scotland beat Israel in a UEFA Euro 2020 play-off back in October last year, winning 5-3 on penalties at Hampden after a 0-0 draw in normal time.


Key Facts – Scotland vs Israel Betting Tip

  • This will be the seventh meeting between the pair since October 2018
  • Both nations have won three qualifiers so far
  • The reverse game in Tel Aviv ended in a 1-1 draw


A point for Scotland would keep them ahead of Israel and Austria with three games to play, but a win would be priceless for Clarke and his troops. Fixtures between these two in recent years have been tight, so put some money on Scotland to win by one goal at the top price of 5/2.

Ryan Fraser was on target in Tel Aviv, and the Newcastle United man also scored in Scotland’s easy win over Faroe Islands. The winger is priced at 15/4 to net anytime in this one.
