Commentary

Thank you for following our live coverage. Until next time, goodbye!
Israel conclude their international break with a trip to Moldova on Wednesday, while Scotland host the Faroe Islands on the same day.
It finishes honours even at the Bloomfield Stadium, where Israel and Scotland play out a 1-1 draw. Dor Peretz's first-half strike was cancelled out by Ryan Fraser after the break, but neither side were able to find a winning goal. Both will see it as a chance wasted with Denmark and Austria already pulling away at the top of Group F.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: ISRAEL 1-1 SCOTLAND
90' + 2' Scotland on the front foot at the midway point in stoppage time. Can they turn this pressure into a winning goal?
90' We are going to have four additional minutes in Tel Aviv. 
88' Following Denmark's 8-0 thrashing of Moldova earlier today, both sides could do with a winner here to keep up with the Danes' 100 per cent record in Group F. Will we see a late twist?
S. Armstrong
R. Fraser
86' Stuart Armstrong comes on for the final few minutes, with Fraser making way.
83' In addition to refereeing, Aytekin also works as an entrepreneur. In fact, he co-founded a couple of fitness and law websites. Indeed, a man of many talents!
D. Peretz
Yellow Card
81' NO PENALTY! Peretz goes to ground in the box under pressure from Robertson. But the referee awards a free-kick the other way, while booking the midfielder for simulation.
B. Kayal
S. Menachem
79' The hosts turn to the bench with Beram Kayal replacing Menachem.
79' Put your foot through it! More good play from Scotland results in Robertson's cutback ricocheting kindly into the path of McTominay. The Manchester United midfielder goes for placement rather than power and his tame effort is blocked by the Israel defence.
76' Better ball needed! Neat play from Scotland sees McTominay get in a good position to cut the ball back. However, he is unable to find a team-mate and Israel clear.
L. Dykes
C. Adams
75' Lyndon Dykes also enters the action in place of Adams.
K. McLean
J. McGinn
74' A double-change for Scotland. The first sees Kenny McLean replace McGinn.
M. Dabbur
S. Weissman
74' A change for Israel with Weissman making way for Moanes Dabour.
73' History beckons for Zahavi. The PSV Eindhoven forward is just one goal away from becoming his nation's joint-leading scorer of all time. He would match Mordechai Spiegler's official total of 25 should he find the net here.
72' A good spell of Israeli pressure culminates in Zahavi trying his luck from distance. However, there is not quite enough dip on his long-range strike.
69' Yet again, a close contest has ensued between these sides. In fact, you must go back to Scotland's 3-1 victory in April 1981 for the last time they were separated by more than a single goal.
67' SIDE-NETTING! Menachem is completely unmarked as he meets a deep cross to the far post. However, he sends his header the wrong side of the woodwork.
65' The departure of Natcho brings his 75th international appearance to an end. The skipper moves to within one cap of a place in the top 10 on his country's all-time list.
N. Lavi
B. Natcho
63' Israel make their first change of the day as Natcho is replaced by Neta Lavi.
62' The visitors continue to ask questions with Tierney trying his luck from distance. There is plenty of venom in his ambitious effort and the goalkeeper is forced to turn it away with strong hands.
61' Good save! Scotland attack again with Fraser leading the charge before feeding Adams. The striker cuts inside onto his right foot and looks to steer the ball into the far corner, but Marciano springs across well to deny him.
60' This contest is finely poised as we enter the final half an hour. Although, Scotland certainly have the edge at the moment.
58' Scotland have their tails up and go in search of a second goal with Robertson seeking out the run of Adams. But the Southampton striker had marginally strayed offside.
R. Fraser
Goal
56' FRASER!!! 1-1! Scotland's pressure pays dividends! After winning the ball back in the centre of the field, the visitors embark on a quickfire counter with Adams leading the charge. The Southampton striker then squares for Fraser, who takes a touch before drilling his shot into the corner.
C. Adams
Assist
56' Adams led the Scotland charge before demonstrating great awareness to pick out Fraser, who did the rest.
54' There is no reason that Scotland cannot come from behind here. After all, they did it twice to salvage a point against Austria on Thursday.
52' Israel's concentration levels are being truly tested here. Following another neat build-up by the visitors, they just about manage the scramble the ball away.
50' Clarke's words are clearly still ringing in his players' ears. The visitors have made a bright start to this second half and are applying a high press on the Israel defence.
48' Good early pressure from the Scots sees them force a corner. Christie whips it in, but none of his team-mates can apply the vital touch.
46' Scotland get the ball rolling again in the second half.
R. Christie
J. Hendry
46' An attacking change from Scotland at the break with Ryan Christie replacing Hendry.
While Scotland have enjoyed good spells as well, they have yet to truly test Marciano in the Israel goal. Clarke will be urging his players to change that in the second half.
Dor Peretz's sweet strike has given Israel a thoroughly deserved half-time lead against Scotland. The hosts have looked the more threatening of the two sides at the Bloomfield Stadium and can count themselves unlucky not to be further ahead.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: ISRAEL 1-0 SCOTLAND
M. Solomon
Assist
44' Solomon laid the ball into the path of Peretz, who broke the deadlock with only his second senior international goal.
D. Peretz
Goal
44' PERETZ!!! 1-0 ISRAEL! And what a goal it was! Receiving the ball in space around 25 yards from goal, Peretz unleashes a fierce drive into the top corner, despite the best efforts of Marshall. The hosts lead and it is thoroughly deserved.
42' Adams is penalised by referee Aytekin. This is the German official's first international appointment since Wales' victory over Azerbaijan in November 2019. Prior to today, he had dished out 38 yellow cards and four red cards in his previous seven international games.
40' Can either side find the opening goal before half-time? They have five minutes plus stoppage-time to do so.
38' Good hands! Israel go on the attack at the other end. Natcho floats an inviting ball into the box that is met by Weissman, but Marshall scrambles across well and holds onto his header.
36' A good spell from the Scots. This time, Robertson sends in a cross from the left, but the goalkeeper climbs well to palm the ball away to safety.
34' Nice play! Better from the visitors as a neat ball from Fraser sends Adams on the chase. However, Marciano is quickly out of goal to gather.
32' A good opportunity for Scotland, who are awarded a free-kick in a dangerous position. Robertson floats it towards the far post, but Israel manage to scramble it away.
30' Still goalless as we hit the half-hour mark in Tel Aviv. Israel have enjoyed more possession and carried the greater threat so far.
J. Hendry
Yellow Card
28' Hendry shown the first yellow card of the game. He took the ball in his challenge on Peretz, but did catch the midfielder on the follow-through..
26' Arad tries his luck this time. Good play from the hosts culminates in the defender going for goal from the edge of the box. But his effort is always rising.
25' GOOD SAVE! Israel continue to apply the pressure and a good touch from Solomon opens space for him to have a clear shot on goal. Thankfully for Scotland, it is straight at Marshall.
23' Good block! A long diagonal ball is neatly cushioned into the path of the onrushing Zahavi, but Hanley stands firm to block his first-time shot.
21' As for Israel, you must go back to the 1970 World Cup for their sole appearance at a major tournament finals. Defeat by Denmark put an early dent in their hopes of ending the wait next year, and they cannot afford too many more slip-ups in this group.
19' Of course, Marshall wrote his name into Scottish folklore in November. His penalty save from Aleksandr Mitrovic in the shootout secured Scotland's place at Euro 2020. He will be hoping to create more magical memories at the finals.
17' Shades of Manuel Neuer and Rene Higuita as Marshall comes racing out of goal to sweep up a long ball over the top of the Scotland defence. It was an important intervention from the goalkeeper with Weissman lurking.
15' It has been a very open start to this game. Both sides have enjoyed opportunities to get forward inside the opening quarter of an hour, but without success as of yet.
13' Of course, the Boys in Blue are looking forward to their first appearance at a major tournament finals since 1998. Drawn in Group D at the delayed Euro 2020, they will play Czech Republic, Croatia and auld enemy England.
11' The Scots come into this game having lost two of their last three after a run of nine without defeat. Can they put an end to it here?
9' CHANCE! McTominay must hit the target! The Manchester United midfielder rises to meet Robertson's pinpoint corner, but can only direct his header wide of the far post.
8' Just wide! A long ball into the heart of the Scottish defence breaks kindly for Solomon on the edge of the box. However, the attacking midfielder sweeps his shot narrowly wide of the target.
6' At the other end, Scotland look to get in behind with Robertson chasing a long ball over the top of the defence. But the skipper is rightly ruled offside.
5' The Blue and Whites are looking to banish their recent struggles on home soil, where they have been beaten in three of their last five. Although, the single victory during that span did come against Scotland in November.
3' A positive start from the hosts culminates in Dasa squaring the ball to Zahavi, but the defence stands to block his attempt on goal.
1' Germany's Deniz Aytekin is the man in the middle today. He blows his whistle and Israel get us underway.
The teams are making their way out onto the field and will now observe the national anthems. Kick-off is fast approaching in Tel Aviv.
The familiar foes rekindle their recent rivalry for the sixth time in just under two-and-a-half years. Of course, Scotland prevailed in the Euro 2020 play-off semi-final on penalties in October, but Israel came out on top in their Nations League encounter the following month.
As for Scotland, Steve Clarke makes three changes from the dramatic draw with Austria. Che Adams makes his first start at the spearhead of the attack, while Ryan Fraser and Callum McGregor also come into the side. Stuart Armstrong, Ryan Christie and Lyndon Dykes drop to the bench. 
Willibald Ruttensteiner makes two changes from Israel's defeat by Denmark three days ago. Ofri Arad replaces Joel Abu Hanna in defence, while Shon Weissman is prefered to Munas Dabbur up front. Hibernian goalkeeper Ofir Marciano starts between the sticks for the hosts; skipper Bibras Natcho earns his 75th cap.
