Both teams to score: Yes at 1.9 with Betfair - 2 units
- With Israel, a point behind the Czech’s only a win will see them qualify for the later rounds. With that in mind, we should expect an open game
- As weak as Israel may be, they have a decent selection of attacking threats in Dia Saba of Guangzhou R&F, his former teammate Eran Zahavi (now PSV) and Hoffenheim's Munas Dabbur.
- Dia Saba wasn’t available for the previous games so expect them to offer more of a threat here than they did against Scotland and Slovakia
- Israel have scored at least once in all of their last 10 home games (every game since the start of 2018)
- In their EC qualification home games, they scored 2.00 per 90 while generating 1.76xG per 90
- Their numbers at home in the last UNL campaign were slightly better
- Now, how do the Czech’s match up? Well, they conceded 8 goals in their 4 road games during the EC qualification. Their only clean sheet came away to Montenegro (0.97xGA conceded in that game)
- In their previous UNL campaign, they conceded in all their road games giving up 1.64xGA per 90 mins.
- In that last UNL campaign, the Czech’s ranked 3rd worst in the B league for xGA while Israel were among the worst teams in League C for preventing opposition chances.
- Finally, Israel haven’t kept a clean sheet against a top 50 ranked teams since they drew 0-0 with Wales in 2015
Final word: Providing Israel manage to get on the scoresheet I think this bet lands with ease. Bet BTTS no lower than 1.78
