Israel vs Cyprus by AlexisP
Competition: EURO 2016, Qualification
Ground: Itztadion Teddy, Jerusalem
Manager: Eli Guttman
Since it became a member of UEFA in it was never able to qualify for the final stage of a EURO Cup. It has the chance to do so if it wins Cyprus and gets a draw against Belgium. It will not qualify straight to the tournament however. It will need to participate in a play-off game. If Bosnia fails to win either Wales or Cyprus, then a win on today’s game will be enough. It had a decent tournament so far but it could have done better. The highlight of the tournament is the big win against Bosnia at home3-0. Today it plays against an opponent that might have not a big name in football generally but had very decent results so far. Israel is clearly the favourite for this game but will need to very focused because Cyprus can cause troubles.
Manager: Pambos Christodoulou
It had a decent tournament so far and deserved something more than the 9 points that collected so far. It did not deserve to lose in both games against Wales and did not deserve to lose against Israel and Belgium at home. The only poor performance came against Belgium away where it lost 5-0. Cyprus is missing some key players however like Christofi and Sotiriou who can make the difference on the forward line. There are still players that can make the difference for Cyprus however, like Laifis, Efrem, Aloneftis, Makrides and Mytides.
Prediction: Cyprus can be satisfied only with a victory on this game. Any other result means elimination. The target was not qualification but since it has its chances on this game it might battle for it. Israel can not be satisfied with a draw either. They need to win the game in order to be satisfied with a draw against Belgium. I believe that we’ll watch some goals on this game since both teams need to win. The price for over 2.5 goals is quite good so this will be my choice.
