Written by on September 3, 2021

Denmark will try to maintain its perfect mark on Saturday when it faces the Faroe Islands on the first day of Matchday 5 in group play of 2022 FIFA World Cup European Qualifying. The Danes are 4-0-0 and have scored 16 goals without conceding one in World Cup qualifiers, and now they face a Faroe Islands team that is 0-1-2 and has scored just twice. The match is at 2:45 p.m. ET on Saturday and is part of a 13-game slate that also includes defending World Cup champion France facing Ukraine at 2:45 p.m ET. The French (2-2-0) are at the top of their group but will try to rebound after Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Bosnia and Herzegovina, while Ukraine is in seeking its first victory (0-4-0). Kazakhstan faces Finland at 9 a.m. ET, five games are scheduled for noon ET and seven are at 2:45 p.m. ET.       

The Israel vs. Austria match is expected to be one of the most competitive of the 13 games on Saturday’s stacked schedule. Austria is the +105 favorite in the latest 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with Israel the +230 underdog and a draw priced at +200.

Top 2022 FIFA World Cup European Qualifiers predictions

One of Green’s best bets for Saturday: He fully expects both teams to score (-125) in the matchup between Austria and Israel. The teams have plenty of quality in attack and don’t focus much on the back end. Israel striker Eran Zahavi of PSV Eindhoven had a hat trick Wednesday and faces an Austria team that has yielded as many goals (seven) as it has scored. The Austrians have more talent overall and will have their foot on the gas as they battle for critical points in this showdown.

The Austrians advanced out of the group stage at Euro 2020, the first time they had moved on at a major tournament in almost 40 years. They have one of the world’s most versatile players in David Alaba, and Marko Arnautovic and Christoph Baumgartner are capable scorers. Arnautovic has seven goals in 12 games in all competitions in 2020-21. Zahavi has 12 in 13 matches, and Munas Dabbur also scored Wednesday and has nine goals in 30 matches for Israel.
