Israel still dream with achieving something in this group and, although their mission is not impossible,
it will be really tough.
The Israeli, with Spain and Italy on their group, already knew it would be hard to qualify and although it is still possible, the scenario is complicated. They still have to face those two teams and the only way to go through would be to beat them on those matches.
Israel comes into this match after a 0-3 home loss against Albania, which was a tough blow on their aspirations, who were hoping to have 12 points at the moment, which would leave them closer to Spain and Italy.
Any way, it is essential to win this match in order to keep aspiring for something. Any result other than the win here, will practically leave them without any chance of qualifying.
Macedonia is a relatively weak team. They even have some players playing in good European leagues and they have Pandev as their main key player. But as a National team, they show a lot of weaknesses and that’s why they only have 3 points in this group, thanks to a win over Liechtenstein.
The Macedonian come into this match after a 1-2 loss in a match where they still had some chances to snatch some points in the last stage of the game, but the Spanish’ experience was enough to beat this team, who doesn’t aspire to nothing at this point, they’re just playing because they have to.
Israel vs Macedonia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Israeli have to give a positive reply after having lost 0-3 at home against Albania.
Winning this match, they can put some pressure on either Spain or Italy, the team that loses that match. These are the last matches so they must give it their all.
As a team, the Israeli are a bit superior and I think they should have the upper-hand in this encounter.
I don’t expect a battering, but a win to redeem their bad performance against Albania and keep their hope of reaching the 2nd place alive.
