Is Israel vs Scotland on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch World Cup qualifier

Scotland travel to Israel for their World Cup qualifier on Sunday night.

Steve Clarke’s side earned a 2-2 draw at home to Austria as they twice came from behind to secure a point. Grant Hanley and John McGinn – whose goal came with five minutes remaining – ensured Scotland did not start their campaign with a defeat after a double from Sasa Kalajdzic.

Meanwhile, Israel lost 2-0 to Denmark in their opening qualifier.

Meanwhile, Steve Clarke is predicting a tight group: “I think I said at the start when the group was drawn I can see teams dropping points against each other all the way through this.

“I don’t see a Belgium, for example, taking 30 points or a Russia who I think took 24 points – so 54 points went to the top two seeds last time. I don’t see that happening now. I think it will be a competitive group all the way through with a lot of twists and turns. It is not about eliminating Israel. The key for us is to try and build on the performance against a really good Austria side. “It got us a point, we wanted three. Now if we can go to Israel and get three points that would be a good return after two tough games.”

This could be a tight affair. Both sides need a win, but neither side can afford to lose. I think Scotland could nick it. 1-0 Scotland.
