Israel host their second game at home in three days as they face Belgium in Jerusalem. Belgium come into this game off the back of a terrific 5-0 win over Cyprus, one in which Fellaini brought his Manchester United form to the international scene as he was an integral part of the win and scored two goals. WIth Christian Benteke and Eden Hazard also finding the net Belgium were in form and looked like the formidable team that reached the quarter finals of the World Cup. Belgium have an abundance of talent with Wolfsburg Kevin De Bruyne and Chelsea's Eden Hazard the main inspiration in midfield. Benteke has found his form at the right time for both club and country and is he continues to improve he will be one of the best striker in the world in the coming years.
Israel were very poor at the weekend when losing 3-0 to Wales. Uncharacteristicaly Israel floundered defensivley as Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey produced the three goals for Wales. Charlton's Tel Ben Haim is the main man at the back and will be a key figure for Israel if they are to contain Belgium. With both teams fancying their chances of winning this group this could be a decisive game in the group. A win for either side will see them move to the top of the Group.
After watching the games at the weekend there is no way to pick anything other than a comfortable Belgium win, the Belgians were terrific at the weekend and they looked like they eased off in the second half as well. i think Belgium win here and cover the handicap, I would imagine it will be at least a two goals win for Hazard and co.
