Austria News and Form – Can Austria bite back against Israel?

Austria have some ground to make up on the top two in a competitive Group G. They trail leaders Poland by three points, but they also have Slovenia a point ahead of them as well. It is a W3 D1 L2 record that the Austrians have collected in their campaign. They suffered a 4-2 loss on their visit to Tel Aviv back in March against Israel, despite having opened the scoring at the Ramat Gan Stadium. Austria failed to win either of their first two qualifiers but gathered themselves to go W3 D1 in their following four. They took a good away point in Poland last time out.

Eran Zahavi Anytime Goalscorer


Austria have conceded in only one of their last four qualifiers, which has been a fantastic return. Their home record in recent European Championship qualification matches has to be taken into consideration as well. They have taken a W6 D1 L1 record in their last eight such fixtures. All six of the wins for Austria in that sequence were with a clean sheet. Four of those six victories were by a 1-0 scoreline which may have appeal for punters in Austria v Israel betting.

Israel News and Form – Can Israel do the double over Austria?

How big would three points for Israel on Thursday? Huge. It would put them above Austria, but at the same time, they know that a defeat would leave their qualification hopes in tatters. Israel started qualification well, going undefeated in their first three games. But then things went off the rails a bit with losses against Poland and Slovenia, plus a poor draw against Macedonia. That really set them back. Even a point out of this, in the long run, would not likely be enough for them to get through.

What has to be taken into context is the away form of Israel in European Championship qualifiers. It’s not good. They are only W1 D1 L4 in their last six such fixtures. So that’s a really poor return and diminishes chances of an upset. There has been a trend of high scoring games involving Israel on the road. Each of their last four away qualifiers have gone over 2.5 goals as has seven of their last eight. The 4-2 win at home that they took over Austria some special for them, with Eran Zahavi netting a hattrick. They need to find a way to top that on Thursday.

Austria v Israel Predictions

Austria to win: Israel just don’t appear to have the strengths away from home to be able to get the points that they need out of this one to move above Austria in the table. After their big loss on the road in Poland, you would expect them to fall against Austria too. Home win.
