Israel vs Latvia Match Preview
Israel had a lot to be happy about early in their EURO 2020 Qualifiers campaign but they haven’t been able to keep track of the Group G top 2, seeing a four-match winless streak since June and bagging just one point along the way. They now host Latvia hoping to bounce to the winning ways despite such circumstances, coming into the match as heavy betting favourites to do so.
Blue and Whites have struggled defensively and in-form Eran Zahavi (who bagged ten goals in seven games) just wasn’t enough, as they saw Poland (4-0), Slovenia (3-2), and Austria (3-1) all secure the home points as well as North Macedonia (1-1) snatch one at Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium.
Latvia have seen a troubled spell of form and, as many expected ahead of the campaign, they sit rock-bottomed in Group G. However, failing to snatch any points and bagging just one goal in seven games will still be very disappointing for Slavisa Stojanovic and his men.
11 Wolves have seen a comfortable home loss to Poland (0-3) on Thursday, where Robert Lewandowski bagged a hat-trick and all but secured the EURO 2020 ticket. They now hope for more of a challenge in Beer Sheva but we don’t really see them coping well, with struggles in the attacking third just as obvious as their defensive woes.
We will thus go for Israel to bag the points with confidence and we’ll back them to a convincing win with Asian Handicap -2.5, which comes at an eye-catching 13/10 with bet365 and looks like great value seeing the visitors’ spell of form lately.
Indeed, Latvia struggle to create chances and we don’t really see them in for many on the day either. With that in mind, we’re now also backing Israel to keep a clean sheet, which comes at 1/2 with William Hill and looks like more of a banker bet.
