Faroe Islands – Israel Match Preview

  • Currently off World Cup qualification (WCQ) Group F’s bottom spot on goal difference only, the Faroe Islands (D1, L2) come into this fixture as clear underdogs. That is a familiar tag for the nation currently ranked 114th by FIFA, and an unlikely win here would hand them just an eighth victory in 74 WCQ matches, and their first since September 2017.
  • Despite their poor reputation, the Faroe Islands are on an upward trajectory by their own standards, as in terms of WCQ action, the ‘Landsliðið’ have lost just two of their previous five home fixtures. Plus, instant entertainment is usually a given here, as four of the Faroe Islands’ previous five home matches overall have produced over 1.5 goals before HT.
  • Israel have eyes on qualifying for a first World Cup since 1970, and have made a solid start in their pursuit of doing so (W1, D1, L1). While sterner tests lie ahead, Israel will be eager to prove themselves, as the 1998 World Cup qualifiers (3rd – eliminated) mark the last occasion on which they managed to win at least half of their fixtures in a WCQ campaign.
  • The visitors’ most recent WCQ assignment saw them register a commanding 4-1 rout of Moldova, and they followed that up with another impressive win away (3-1) vs Montenegro in a June friendly. Striking an early blow will likely be key for Israel, as they have ultimately won each of the previous five occasions where they’ve scored first as visitors.
  • Players to watch: Faroe Islands forward Klæmint Olsen has scored a brace in each of his previous home appearances for both club and country. Mu’nas Dabbur scored in his last Israel appearance, and he’s started the season well for Hoffenheim, with two goals across his first four competitive appearances.
  • Hot stat: Israel have finished third in four of their last six completed WCQ campaigns.
