Kick-off time: 20:45 CET
The Group B Euro 2016 qualifier between Andorra and Israel is one of huge mismatch. Both these sides have never qualified for European Championships but the visitors are close to qualification, at least in expectations than the hosts, who do not have any high hopes.
Andorra is at the bottom of the group losing both their matches so far while Israel have 3 points from their win against Cyprus.
Andorra form: L-L-L-L-L>
Andorra is one of the smallest countries in the UEFA family. It would be a huge progress for this tiny nation if this progress culminates in a European Championship tournament berth.
Andorra lost narrowly to Wales in their opening fixture which was followed by a thrashing in the hands of Belgium. Though expected, the gains of the loss against Wales were wiped out by the hiding against Belgium. Israel’s encounter is another stern test which could prove unsurmountable.
Israel form: W-W-L-L-D
Israel is yet to qualify for the European Championships. Starting the campaign with a win against Cyprus, Israel are out to change that.
Israel started with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Cyprus. In a group which has the heavyweights Belgium, it is important for Israel to keep winning the ‘must-win’ matches. With Wales and Bosnia showing initial signs of struggling to show consistency, Israel can draw away from their competitors.
Andorra: Ferran Pol
Andorra goal keeper had a good game against Wales but was left helpless against the rampaging Belgians. He should be busy against Israel too.
Israel: Tal Ben Haim
The younger of the two namesakes in the Israel side was at his best in the game against Cyprus scoring one and making the other.
Israel are strong enough to win by more than 3 goals. Bet365 offer 1.44 for more than 2.5 goals, which is a banker here while more than 3.5 goals in the game is at 2.0 with bet365.
