Scotland vs Israel: Recommended bets

Oli McBurnie to score first. The Sheffield United striker is back for Scotland after missing the last international break.

Following his great season with Sheffield United last term, McBurnie will be hoping to kick start this campaign with a goal for the national team.

McBurnie is 9/2 to score the first goal on Thursday.

Match preview: Scotland vs Israel

Scotland are hoping to end their wait of 22 years without reaching a major competition.

The 1998 World Cup in France was the last time the Scots reached a major championship.

But given their impressive start to life under Steve Clarke, they should be optimistic of ending that long wait.

They are undefeated in their last five matches, winning in four of them.

Scotland’s run of good form has seen them defeat San Marino, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and Czech Republic.

Clarke has had an opportunity to analyse opponents Israel having played against them last month.

Both sides clashed in a friendly which they drew 1-1 and Clarke will be hoping his side will have learnt from the game.

Clarke now has an array of Premier League talent to select from including Kieran Tierney, Andrew Robertson, Ollie McBurnie and Ryan Fraser.

Israel: One win in last nine

Israel have managed just one win in their last nine games, entering Thursday’s clash in disappointing form.

They finished 5th in Group G in qualifying for Euro 2020, losing half their games.

However, despite their woeful qualifying campaign, striker Eran Zahavi managed to finish third-highest scorer.

Zahavi managed to finish just behind England’s Harry Kane and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

The new PSV striker netted eleven goals in qualifying and will be a man for Scotland to look out for on Thursday.

Over the summer, the Dutch club snatched up Zahavi and he netted on his first appearance for the club.

Scotland team news vs Israel

Oliver McBurnie will get his first proper opportunity to star for Scotland as he returns to the fold on Thursday.

Ryan Fraser also returns for Scotland having finally settled his future with a move to Newcastle United.

Steve Clarke is expected to stick with a back-three, which he experimented with during the last international break.

Kieran Tierney and Andrew Robertson are likely to feature for the Scots.
