This is a vital time for Scotland and Israel as it is the last chance for both teams to grab the last ticket for EURO 2020 and be part of the most exciting tournament in Europe. The teams were drawn to play at Scotland's home field, which will be a great advantage for the Scottish. The bookmakers pointed out Scotland as a favourite to win this game, but as is known, Israel will travel to Glasgow with one major goal - to beat its hosts. However, Scotland has one more big reason to be very motivated and give its best in this game - the team's field will host four of the EURO 2020 matches. Israel and Scotland met each other recently at the Nations League group, and Scotland won at Glasgow with 3:2, while Israel won its home game with 2:1. The winner of the game will face the winner of the other playoff between Norway and Serbia in the final clash for a ticket for EURO 2020.

The team of Scotland missed to qualify for the EURO 2020 through the qualifications. The squad finished as third in its group, which was led by Belgium and Russia. The Scottish won 5 games and 5 five matches, without making any draws. Scotland scored 16 goals and received 19 goals during the qualifications, which means that the defence easily allows goals. It wasn't obvious why these results have happened when most of the players play at the local Scotland Premier League, English Premier League, and Championship. Still, we admit that based on its home advantage and experienced players, Scotland has bigger chances to win against Israel. Andrew Robertson from Liverpool, Robert Snodgrass from West Ham, and Kenny McLean from Norwich, definitely possess the needed skills to help their team in the battle. The bookmakers offer betting odds around 1.90 for Scotland to win the game, a market, which can be very profitable if you decide to take a punt on it.
The national team of Israel disappointed its fans during the qualifications for EURO 2020. Israel finished at the fifth position in its group and performed very poorly. The stats of 3 wins, 2 draws, and 5 losses confirm that Israel's play wasn't with quality and the team should gather all of its strengths quickly in order to have a chance to play at its first European Championship. We admit that Israel has good attacking players, who can make the game difficult for Scotland. If you believe that this is enough for Israel to qualify for the final playoff, the market Israel to go through offers odds around 2.80 and they can be very attractive for you.
Head to head statistics
The teams have played five games against each other. The national team of Scotland won 4 of the games, while Israel won only 1. In the past games, Scotland scored 9 times and received 4 goals from Israel.
