Match Preview


While nobody was placing Israel for the battle for the top 2 spots in Group G, the team managed to get on that 2nd spot with 7 points and will now meet their main competitor Portugal. The team managed to record the 2 victories over the outsider in the group Luxembourg, lost to Russia, and manage to hold off against Azerbaijan recording a 1-1 draw. The team lost the game against the other top team in the group Russia with 0-4 at home, and hopes to do better here. Of course, the team is priced as the outsider of this match with odds @ 7.00 for victory and 4.00 for a draw. Betting tip #1 for this match would be Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.15. Wonderful value of these odds and a bit surprised to see them that high. Apparently the books believe, Portugal will not manage to score a lot, or Israel will be able to shut them down. We however believe and advise that you take that bet, because this game will see at least 3 goals!

Portugal is currently 3rd in Group G with 7 points in 4 games, recording 2 victories, a draw and a loss. The draw came against Northern Ireland at home, a rather surprising result and the loss in the away match against Russia. One of the victories was against Azerbaijan with 3-0, and the other one was a hard win against the outsider Luxembourg with 2-1, away after on half-time the score was 1-1. Portugal needs the 3 points from this game to get closer to the Russians who are visitors on that day in Northern Ireland. The betting odds for Portugal to win this match are 1.50 and that’s great. We believe that if Christiano Ronaldo and company wants to have chances for that top spot, and secure the play-off 2nd place, they’ve got to gather as many points against the easier teams, before the rematch against Russia in Portugal.


Betting tip #1 would be the logical outcome of this match, as most can guess Portugal to win @ 1.50 with bet365. The class of the Portugal team is way beyond Israel’s and we expect a victory, hoping that the team won’t underestimate the match like the one against Luxembourg.

Betting tip #2 would be Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.15 with bet365. Great value in that bet, apparently the books do not expect Portugal to manage to score nor concede a lot of goals.
