Belgium vs Israel by AlexisP

Belgium
VS
Israel
Game: Belgium-Israel

 

Competition: EURO 2016, Qualification

 

Ground: King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels

 

Team News:

 

Manager: Marc Wilmots

 

It already qualified to the final stage of the tournament after the 4-1 away win against Andorra. They worked hard and they return into a Euro Cup after 16 years. They have formed a new golden generation and they can even battle for winning the trophy. There are world class players on this team like Hazard, De Bruyne, Courtoise and Kompany. The majority of the players are capable of playing in top level for the best teams of the world. The fact that they are already qualified gives the chance to Wilmots to try new formations and new players. This does not mean that Belgium will not play for winning this game. They are playing at home and the most possible scenario is that they will manage to win a weaker opponent.

 

Israel:

 

Manager: Eli Guttman

 

They started the competition very well, winning the first 3 games. The highlight of their success was the 3-0 win against Bosnia at home. They only managed to get 3 more points after that however (win against Andorra and a draw against Wales). The defeat against Cyprus at home does not leave many chances to Israel. They need to win this game in order to qualify. Even a win however does not guarantee qualification to the play-offs. If Bosnia wins Cyprus then everything is over. Against Cyprus, Israel was very poor as the visitors had been the better side and deserved the win. I don’t know how they can improve so much and win Belgium away but it’s the only chance for finishing third. Any other result means that they are out.

 

Prediction: As I mentioned above, Israel qualifies only if Bosnia doesn’t win Cyprus and at the same time they win Belgium. The scenario is not easy to take place. I can understand that Cyprus might be able to win or draw against Bosnia but in my opinion it’s hard for Israel to win Belgium in an away game. Belgium probably will not use its regular setup but the players that will be used are much better than those of Israel and they also want to impress. In case that Bosnia is winning against Cyprus, probably Israel will not have the courage to battle against Belgium. On the other hand Israel can not wait for any scenario. Cyprus also wants to win Bosnia so that they will have the chance to qualify, so Israel wants to win. Belgium plays at home so they want to finish the group stage with a victory. I believe that we’ll watch some goals so my choice is over 2.5 goals.

Against Cyprus at home however it won 5-0 easily. Away games are different. They will play without pressure at all and they are much better. Israel is satisfied only if it wins so I expect an open game. Even if Israel plays defensively I don't believe that they will be able to keep the forwards of Belgium away.
