Austria – Israel, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR AUSTRIA - ISRAEL
Austria are required to qualify for Euro 2020 for several reasons. 1st is that they have enough talented and potential squad to do it, as they do not always bring together such talented teams. The 2nd is because their group is quite weak compared to some other groups. The chances are huge. With the exception of the 2 games against Poland, who are favorites, their loss to Israel as a guest was the only bad result.
The truth is that in this group, only Latvia with 0 points have no chance of anything. All other teams are level and their points are almost identical. Israel has 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. Quite unpredictable for now. But it is worth mentioning that their two losses as guests have conceded 7 goals. Latvia also won as a guest, but this match is unlikely to be a factor today.
Expert view : Austria are favorites in the meeting. We think they can score an early goal to open the game, and that will help us a lot in the prediction. Israel has not played perfect tactical matches lately to present any argument that they are a valuable defense team. We’ll bet on the favorites here. The Austrians are a very strong host and rarely lose at home altogether. Prediction – Austria – Over 1.5 goals at 1.60.
Israel has conceded at least 3 goals in 4 of their last 5 away games
