Israel takes on the visitors Spain at “Teddy Stadium” in the round 10 of the Europe’s Qualifiers Group stage for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. The game will be played in Jerusalem on Monday, October 9th.
Having beaten Liechtenstein 1:0 on the road in the last qualification matchday, Israel broke its five-clash streak without victories. In general, the side showed solid performance in this qualification campaign, having gained 12 points with 10-14 goal difference in nine encounters played as the Israeli have lost only to the favourites of Group G while took almost all their points in the battles against equal opponents. As a result, the team sits on the fourth position in the standings and it is not going to leave it. Israel picked up just three points with three goals for and eight goals against in four matches in face of its supporters.

In their turn, the Spaniards come up to the fight in the status of Group G winner and the World Cup’s final stage participant. After disastrous UEFA EURO 2016 the side from the Pyrenees participated in 13 clashes with not a single defeat, 10 triumphs and three draws taken in them. The Spanish A-team has not conceded a single goal across three recent games which make up 294 minutes of football. The Spaniards picked up 25 points with 35 goals for and three goals against in nine qualification encounters. Spain got 10 points with 13 goals for and two goals against in four clashes at away grounds.
Israel and Spain met five times in their history resulting in single draw and four victories in favour of the Spaniards. There are no objective reasons for presuming that the visitors will allow the hosting side to earn some points in the forthcoming battle.
Prediction for the match: Spain to win with -1.0 Asian handicap.
