Wales vs Israel Betting Tips

      Tip Reasoning

      A win on Sunday afternoon would just about seal the deal for Wales. It looked like they were coming up against some sticky opposition when they were tied 0-0 with Cyprus late in the game, before Gareth Bale stepped up and saved the day again. Bale scored in the 82nd minute, proving his world class ability and also his incredible talent for driving this team and breaking games open. It’s transformed the qualifying campaign for Wales, who have gone from pesky underdogs to real favourites to win the group.

      The two games against Belgium are in the books, which means that this is probably the biggest remaining game for Wales. They still have games against Bosnia and Andorra, but win tonight, and there won’t be too much pressure on them in those games.

      Israel snapped a three-game losing streak against Andorra on Thursday night. They’ve got to play well against a good team to keep their Euro 2016 hopes alive. They lost their home games to Wales and Belgium, which will make their route to qualification extremely tricky.

      Their attacking quality was on full display in the first 45 minutes against Andorra. They scored four quick goals and had good wide play running consistently and creating regular threats. However, they were not as potent in the second half and the challenge that they’ll face on Sunday is a very different one.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Israel do have attacking talent

      Israel haven’t played up to their regular standard during this qualification campaign, but we’ll tip them to right some of those wrongs in this game. At the very least they’ll make this tough for Wales and we’ll expect Ben Haim and Munas Dabbur to get something going.

      2. Wales are finding ways to win

      The BTTS bet feels good, because we’re expecting a more open and high-intensity game than the previous encounter. A first half goal will make this game a slightly faster-paced affair and should provide goals. We like Wales (read: Bale) to break this game open late with a winner.

      3. Are Israel tough enough?

      They’ve got some good players, they might play better, but time and time again Israeli national football teams have failed to qualify. The expanded field should have been the opportunity that they needed, but we’re starting to feel a little more skeptical about that now.
