Tuesday Football Tips: Back Zahavi to break Danish defence

Denmark are the only team in Europe not to concede a goal in World Cup qualifying but Paul Higham is backing Eran Zahavi to change that on Tuesday…

Denmark v Israel
Tuesday 7 September, 19:45 kick-off

The top two in the group clash in Copenhagen with Denmark five points clear having won five out of five without conceding a goal.

Israel have won three in a row including an impressive 5-2 victory over Austria in their last game.

Denmark were far from impressive as they only managed to turn 75% possession against the Faroe Islands into a narrow 1-0 win, thanks to Jonas Wind’s goal five minutes from time.

Still, the Danes are looking to maintain their perfect World Cup qualification record and Kasper Hjulmand’s side are the only team yet to concede in the competition.

Israel lost 2-0 in the home fixture but those three wins with 14 goals scored will give them genuine confidence that they can go and get something from this game.

It’s unlikely to be a victory, but they could be the team to finally beat Kasper Schmeichel – and Eran Zahavi could be the man to do it.

Zahavi is a prolific marksman for Israel with six goals in this competition already, including a hat-trick and a brace in his last two matches.

He’s naturally a big price to score anytime at 3.7511/4 given the opposition, but confidence is everything for a goal scorer and, with the run he’s on, he’s capable of collecting for us at a decent price.
