Israel need to beat Austria in Group F of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Friday to keep their play-off hopes alive. 

The Blue and Whites are currently in third place in the group with 13 points from eight games. They are aiming to pip Scotland (17 points) in second place to advance to the play-offs. Denmark had already taken first place and secured an outright World Cup spot in the group.

To advance to the play-offs, Israel must beat Austria and the Faroe Islands in their last two games and hope that Scotland lose to Moldova and Denmark.

Israel beat Moldova 2-1 at Be’er Sheva last month in their last game. Eran Zahavi and Moanes Dabour gave Willibald Ruttensteiner's side a 2-0 lead before they conceded a goal in injury time.

Only Gadi Kinda is on Israel’s injury list prior to this game.

Austria have no more chance of getting an outright play-off berth and only their place in the Nations League will determine if they still have a chance to participate in the next round of qualifiers.

The Austrians have lost three of their last four games. Franco Foda's side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Denmark in their last match.

Alexander Schlager and Konrad Laimer have injuries and they will not feature in Austria’s last two games. Sasa Kalajdzic is also unavailable.

Israel beat Austria 5-2 in their first meeting in Haifa in September. The Israelis zoomed to a 3-0 advantage after Manor Solomon, Moanes Dabour and Zahavi scored. The Austrians responded with goals from Christoph Baumgartner and Marko Arnautovic.

Shon Weissman again doubled Israel’s advantage in the 59th minute before Zahavi sealed their win in the final minute of the game.

Verdict

This is an important match for Israel but Austria won't be easy opponents. Expect this game to end in a draw.
