World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
The derby between the two overachievers of Group G will also take place on Saturday, with Albania hosting Israel.
If Spain and Italy are level on 7 points in the group, Albania and Israel come 3rd and 4th, both with 6 points – gathered from the same games, with almost the same scorelines.
Naturally, we’d expect a draw between them, but let’s go a bit further into analyzing.

Albania’s stature has grown in recent times, after a surprising presence in the final tournament of Euro 2016 and some good performances there (including a 1-0 victory over Romania).
In this group, they won against Macedonia and Liechtenstein and gathered 6 points, only to lose 2-0 against Spain, as widely expected.
Their clash against Israel is a sort-of derby for third place since it’s very hard to think that any of the two teams will pose any real threat to the two footballing powerhouses.
On the other hand, Israel has almost the same line of results. Wins against Macedonia and Liechtenstein, a 5-5 goal difference and a loss against Italy are their results so far, before their game in Albania in which they put big hopes.
A win here could set them up for 3rd place and can do wonders for the morale of their fans, while a loss would be perceived with much disappointment. Who doesn’t want to win the first clash in history against another nation, regardless of its name?
