My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

The FIFA World Cup Qualifiers return this week and will see Scotland host Israel in group F on Saturday at Hampden Park.
Scotland showed decent displays at the Euro 2020, holding the latter finalists England to a goalless draw in the group phase. Sitting second in group F, they have performed fairly well in their World Cup qualification campaign so far. The Scots have lost just once in six games, a 2-0 away defeat to Denmark last month and then beat Moldova and Austria 1-0 in their next games. They have scored 22 goals and conceded none from six games.
Israel have lost twice in their World Cup Qualifiers so far with both losses coming against first-placed Denmark. After losing 2-0 to Denmark in their opening qualification game, they went unbeaten in their next four games, including a three-game winning run. Their run, however, was ended by the Danes last month as they lost 5-0. Israel have scored 14 and conceded 11 goals in their opening six games.
These two teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met each other at the beginning of this qualifying campaign back in March this year. Therefore, expect a same end here: points should be shared between the sides on Saturday.
Final Results: 1-1
