Hapoel Hadera Prediction – Can Hapoel Hadera build on Ashdod win?

A 2-0 win away from home at the aforementioned Ashdod ended a miserable run of 6 league matches without a win in the Israeli top flight and handed the hosts, Hapoel Hadera, a much needed three points in their bid for a top six finish in the Ligat Ha’al.

Hapoel Hadera’s progress up the domestic top flight table had stalled though in recent weeks as the hosts suffered 3 defeats on the trot to Maccabi Haifa, Beitar Jerusalem and Hapoel Tel Aviv, while picking up just 3 points from the possible 18 on offer during this ordinary sequence of results, thanks to draws with Sekztia Nes, Bnei Yehuda and Hapoel Kfar Saba.

Despite the name of their home ground, it’s been anything but Hapoel Hadera as the hosts have managed to register just 1 win out of their last 5 matches amidst an overall home record that stands at 2-3-2 8/7.

That win came in the shape of a 1-0 win against Maccabi Netanya but draws with Ironi Kiryat and Bnei Yehuda along with back-to-back defeats to Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Tel Aviv, make the hosts anything but guaranteed of the points here. instead, 4 of Hapoel Hadera’s home matches have resulted under 2.5 goals, so a low-scoring clash could be on the cards.

Hapoel Be’er Sheva Prediction – Can Be’er Sheva bounce back?

The visitors have also found themselves on the end of a few unwanted defeats in the Ligat Ha’al recently as Be’er Sheva have lost 5 of their last 7 matches overall in the Israeli top flight and have managed just 2 wins during this lean period.

Victories over Maccabi Netanya at home and an away win at Hapoel Kfar has helped maintain Be’er Sheva’s top six position in the top division despite 5 defeats to the likes of Maccabi Tel Aviv, Sektzia Nes, Bnei Yehuda, Maccabi Haifa and Beitar Jerusalem.

Results have been a mixed bag on their travels too as they possess an inconsistent looking record of 2-2-2 7/6 which includes recent wins at Hapoel Haifa and Hapoel Kfar but also losses at Maccabi Tel Aviv and Sektzia Nes.

3 of Be’er Sheva’s 6 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals scored, and with there being very few goals on show so far at Hapoel Hadera’s Winner Stadium so far this season, this could be another low-scoring encounter.


Key-Facts – Hapoel Hadera vs Hapoel Be’er Sheva
