Andorra - Israel predictions and free betting tips [21/11/2023]
On Tuesday, the 21st of November, during the 10th round of the Euro 2024 qualifying tournaments, Andorra's national team will meet the national team of Israel. The home team is in the last place in Group I, having gathered only two points, while the guests are third in the overall standings and have no chances of finishing among the top two.
Andorra: Alvarez; De Pablos, Llovera, Vales, Pomares, Cervos; Alaez, Reves, Vieira, Martinez; Sanchez.
Israel: Glazer; Dasa, Vitor, Goldberg, Revivo; Peretz, Lavi; Baribo, Gloukh, Turgeman; Zahavi.
The match will take place in Andorra la Vella at the National Stadium.
As expected before the start of the qualifying campaign, Andorra's national team failed to perform in a worthy way and deservedly occupies the last place in Group I. The tiny principality, located in the Pyrenees, has not won a single victory (2 draws and 6 defeats) and currently has a three-match losing streak. After defeating Belarus at home in September (0:0), they sequentially lost to Switzerland (3:0), Kosovo (0:3), and Romania (4:0). As a result, the team failed to score in the last 3 matches. In general, Andorra hasn't won since September 2022 when they beat Liechtenstein in the League of Nations, and the goal difference in the current qualifying stages doesn’t encourage fans: 3 scored, 18 conceded.
The last and the only participation of Israel's national team in international competitions dates back to the 1970 World Cup. This year, the team had every chance to break this "drought" - currently, Alon Hazan's charges occupy the 3rd place in the Group I standings, trailing the second spot by 4 points. Last week, the blue-and-white team lost in Kosovo (1:0), then drew with Switzerland (1:1), as a result of which they have completely lost their chances of finishing among the top two.
On the past Saturday, the Israelis suffered a frustrating fiasco from the Romanians at home: Zahavi put the team ahead in the 2nd minute of the meeting, but then the Tricolours responded with goals from Puskas and Hagi. However, the guests still have a chance to make it to the Euros - it will be possible to do so through the League of Nations playoffs.
Head to Head
In June, the Israelis had a hard time securing a home victory with a 2:1 score. In the four previous face-to-face meetings, it was the blue-and-whites who also came out on top.
Andorra vs Israel Match Prediction
Andorra has been more than competitive in several matches of this group and is sure to try to put up a fight in the final match of 2023. The current form of the Israeli national team raises many questions, and the guests do not have the motivation to fight tooth and nail - finishing in the top two is no longer feasible. Even in Israel, the underdog managed not to lose by a large margin - so will this be the case now, betting on the hosts' handicap 1,5.
In the four away matches in this qualifier, Israel has scored only 3 goals - less than 1 per match, on average. Considering the lack of tournament motivation for the visitors, it would be reasonable to place a bet on the individual total of the favourite less than 2.5.
The Israelis significantly outclass their opponent and will hold the initiative - meaning, they will win in the corners with a handicap of -2.5.
Yellow Card Prediction
Neither team has tournament motivation, and they are not known for particular roughness on the pitch – confidently betting on the total of yellow cards less than 3.5.
I would bet on an exact score of 0:1 in favour of Israel's national team.
