Scotland v Israel channel: Kick off time and how to watch live on TV tonight

Scotland play Israel tonight in the World Cup Qualifiers for another chance to cement their current second place stance in Group F. 

It marks the second time in the tournament that the teams have gone head to head, drawing 1-1 in March’s match behind closed doors. 

This time however, Scotland will have the crowd behind them at Hampden Park – and what a crowd it will be, with the stadium operating at full capacity. 

The good news is that the team has always brought its A-game against Israel at home matches, and they will certainly look to do so again tonight. 

There is currently only one point in it between the two, with Scotland placed second behind Austria on 11-points, and Israel in third with 10. 

In a match deemed “another cup final” by Scotland manager Steve Clarke, here’s what you need to know about tuning in on Saturday evening…
