Israel hosts Moldova in round 8 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 12th at Toto Turner Stadium (Be'er Sheva)
Israel has once again lost to Scotland in a key game. Exactly a year ago, in October 2020, the Scots defeated Willibald Ruttersteiner's charges in the UEFA Nations League playoffs. And last Saturday, the teams staged a real fight in Glasgow. Israel took the lead twice after the goals of Zahavi and Dabbur, but Steve Clarke's charges found the strength to respond with their goals. And Mactominay scored the third and winning goal in the 94th minute. Now the Scots are ahead of the White-and-Blues by four points. Is the fight for the 2nd place in the group over?

The Moldovans have long become one of the outsiders of European football. They can show a decent fight against their neighbors, Russia and Ukraine, and sometimes they even managed to score points. But Moldova looks very bad and hopeless in other matches. In 2021, the Moldovans earned only 1 point, tying against the Faroe Islands at home in March (1-1). But the Islanders are higher in the standings thanks to a home 2-1 victory. Roberto Bordin's charges lost the rest of the games, and the score was indecent in some of them. For example, in March, Denmark scored eight unanswered goals. In the last round, the Danes were limited to four. And then they were all scored before the break. Moreover, the Moldovans didn’t create a single scoring chance.
It seems that Moldova views the Israelis as if not their own, then at least not strangers. The underdog scored in all five head-to-head matches and even gained two 1-1 draws. But it happened in friendly matches, and the Israelis won three official games. Moldova is not lucky, as it will get in trouble with the hosts. We bet on the victory of Israel with a handicap of two goals.
Prediction for the match: Israel to win with -2.0 handicap
