Scotland have the chance to take an enormous step toward the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar this weekend, when they host Israel in a qualifier.

Victory would leave Steve Clarke’s team second in the group, four points ahead of their opponents - with Moldova and Faroe Islands still to play in two of their last three games, which should all-but-assure them of a play-off spot.

There would still be work to do there, of course, and it’s no guarantee of an easy match-up in a two-legged encounter, but Scotland have to be optimistic about their chances of reaching back-to-back major tournaments.

Last time out a huge 1-0 win over Austria left them in a great position, so they must make it count against third-place Israel.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

Prediction

Scotland must be feeling confident after several good showings in recent games - plus the draw in the reverse fixture. They must be clinical, but we’ll back them to find a way. Scotland 1-0 Israel.
