Scotland's fate is in their own hands as they bid to seal promotion to UEFA Nations League A when they face Israel on Wednesday. A point clear at the top of Group 2, Steve Clarke knows a win sends his side up from League B.

Israel Form

Israel are on a poor run of form with just one win in the last eight internationals for Willibald Ruttensteiner's side, including two draws with Scotland.

Israel started this UEFA Nations League with a 1-1 draw with Scotland in September, and also drew 0-0 in a European Championship qualifiers play-off in October. Israel lost that game on a penalty shootout.

Ruttensteiner's side could still be relegated from League B with just five points in the bag so far. Having drawn with Scotland, they earned four points against Slovakia (1-1 draw and a 3-2 win) but lost twice to Czech Republic (2-1 and 1-0).

Israel Team News

Israel will be without defender Hatem Abd Elhamed, who plays his football in Scotland with Celtic, after he was sent off against the Czech Republic.

Orel Dgani is the most likely replacement at the heart of the Israel defence.

Israel Squad

Goalkeepers: Ofir Marciano, Ariel Harush, Itamar Nitzan
Defenders: Eitan Tibi, Eli Dasa, Sheran Yeini, Orel Dgani, Ofri Arad, Joel Abu Hanna, Maor Kandil, Idan Nachmias
Midfielders: Bibras Natkho, Eyal Golasa, Ilay Elmkies, Mohammad Abu Fani, Neta Lavi, Eden Karzev
Forwards: Eran Zahavi, Mu'nas Dabbur, Manor Solomon, Dia Saba, Shon Weissman

Scotland Form

Scotland have a had busy week, which started when they booked a place at Euro 2020 with a penalty shootout win over Serbia in their play-off on Thursday. 

Steve Clarke's side remain in charge of Group 2, a point clear of Czech Republic heading into the final games, despite losing 1-0 to Slovakia on Sunday. The defeat ended a nine-game unbeaten run, winning six and drawing three times. 

Scotland started this UEFA Nations League campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Israel, but followed that with three straight wins.

They won 2-1 in the Czech Republic with Lyndon Dykes and Ryan Christie getting the goals. Two 1-0 wins were recorded at home last month against Slovakia and Czech Republic with Dykes and Ryan Fraser the matchwinners. 

Scotland Team News

A hamstring injury has ruled Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson out of the game. Steve Clarke must choose whether to move Arsenal's Kieran Tierney or name Celtic's Greg Taylor.

There could be a switch on the other flank too with right wing-back Stephen O'Donnell set to return in place of Liam Palmer.

Lyndon Dykes should come back into the Scotland attack after serving a one-match ban against Slovakia. But Stuart Armstrong is suspended for the final game of the campaign.

Scotland Squad

Goalkeepers: Craig Gordon, David Marshall, Jon McLaughlin
Defenders: Andrew Considine, Liam Cooper, Declan Gallagher, Scott McKenna, Stephen O'Donnell, Liam Palmer, Andrew Robertson, Greg Taylor, Kieran Tierney
Midfielders: Stuart Armstrong, Ryan Christie, Ryan Jack, John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Kenny McLean, Scott McTominay
Forwards: Oliver Burke, Lyndon Dykes, Leigh Griffiths, Oli McBurnie, Callum Paterson, Lawrence Shankland
