Israel find themselves four points off a qualifying spot for the 2018 World Cup, with anything but a win not enough to help them attempt to close the gap between themselves, Spain and Italy.

Ahead of our Israel vs Albania preview, the hosts have been in fairly good form, but the visitors have been awful. Five consecutive defeats mean that confidence will be at a very low point for Group G’s fourth-placed side.
The last time these two nations met, Israel were easily able to coast to a 3-0 victory in Elbasan, with goals from Eran Zahavi, Daniel Einbinder and Eliran Atar wrapping up a simple win against nine men. It is likely to be a little easier on their own patch, influencing our Israel vs Albania predictions.
Albania have scored just twice in their last five games but did manage a 2-0 away win against Liechtenstein on the road in October. They have won two away matches in European World Cup qualifying since 2005. Not a positive record at all.
The hosts recently drew 1-1 with Moldova on their own patch, and haven’t kept a clean sheet in their own country since September. There is definitely an opportunity for Albania to hurt their opponents this weekend, but they may not have the firepower to do so.
According to our Israel vs Albania picks, the home side should be able to battle to a win in Group G, which will keep their slim qualification hopes alive for now.
