With just over three months until the start of the Euro 2012, co-hosts Ukraine continue their preparations this afternoon with a trip to Israel.
Luis Fernandez’s side put an end to a run of three straight defeats with victory in Malta in their final qualifying match, though that victory wasn’t enough to see them through to the finals this summer.
They will instead be looking ahead to their World Cup qualifying campaign, which begins in Azerbaijan in September.
Israel have been inconsistent of late, both winning and losing four of their last eight games. They do, however, go into this game as favourites at 31/20, while you can get odds of 7/4 for the away win. The draw is priced at 11/5.
Ukraine, for their part, are unbeaten in four matches and will be full of confidence as they aim to continue that momentum into the tournament.
That run included three victories and an impressive 3-3 draw with Germany, who are the second-favourites in bwin’s Euro 2012 winner betting market at present.
They have scored at least two goals in every game of their unbeaten run, so the offer of 9/1 for them to secure a 2-1 victory in Petah Tikva looks intriguing.
Punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com will see a return of £250 if they correctly back that scoreline.
They may have to come from behind to do so, though, as Israel have opened the scoring in their last two fixtures – the hosts are priced at evens to continue that trend.
Alternatively, the offer of 9/2 for Ukraine to win with 2.5 combined goals scored in the game is generous considering their goalscoring prowess.
