Scotland will hope to claim a crucial three points in their 2022 World Cup qualifying group when they head to Israel on Sunday.


Steve Clarke’s men have already earned a 2-2 draw with group favourites Austria during this international break and a victory over Israel would put them in good stead heading into Wednesday’s game against Faroe Islands.

In fact, this is set to be the fourth time these nations have met this season alone. They drew in the Nations League back in September, while a 1-1 draw in October led to their European Championships qualifier heading to penalties, which Scotland subsequently won.

But Israel got some form of revenge beating the Scots a month later thanks to Manor Soloman’s goal in Netanya. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Israel v Scotland on TV and online.

Our prediction: Israel v Scotland

Scotland proved in their draw with Austria that they should be able to hold their own in Group F and Clarke needs three points here to stay apace with Denmark.

The boss has plenty of options to choose from and the likes of McTominay, Kieran Tierney and Andrew Robertson will likely be influential in Tel Aviv.

Don’t be surprised if Adams gets more game time here, while Ryan Fraser will hope to make an impact off the bench. Scotland are in a great position to claim three points.

Our prediction: Israel 0-2 Scotland (11/1 at bet365)
