Maccabi Haifa Prediction – Can Maccabi Haifa extend unbeaten run?

2nd placed Maccabi Haifa have a chance to move level with Ligat Ha’al leaders, Maccabi Tel Aviv, when they take on rivals, Hapoel Haifa at their joint-shared Sammy Ofer Stadium, with a win for Maccabi Haifa possibly taking them to the top of the division.

Maccabi Haifa are currently enjoying a 10-match sequence without defeat in the Israeli top flight which consists of 7 wins and 3 draws and with notable victories registered against the likes of 6th Maccabi Netanya, 3rd placed Beitar Jerusalem and 4th placed Hapoel Be’er Sheva amongst the recent wins.

In addition and just as impressive is the fact that Maccabi Haifa have scored 3 goals or more in 6 of these last 10 matches overall, and the likes of midfielder Chery (6 goals) along with forwards Rukavytsya (7 goals) and Haziza (4 goals) look the most likely for Maccabi Haifa here.

Maccabi Haifa’s record on home turf stands at 4-2-0 16/8 so far this season, and this is a better return at the Sammy Ofer Stadium than their Tuesday night’s opponents, Hapoel Haifa, so far this term.

Hapoel Haifa Prediction – Can Hapoel Haifa hold onto top six place?

Having lost 3 of their last 5 matches recently in the Israeli top flight, Hapoel Haifa’s position in the top six of the Liga Ha’al is starting to look under threat as they prepare for this local clash against Maccabi Haifa who share the Sammy Ofer Stadium.

Recent defeats to Maccabi Tel Aviv 3-0, Maccabi Netanya 3-1 and a 2-0 loss at home to Hapoel Kfar has put some extra pressure upon Hapoel Haifa in recent weeks, but they have managed to register wins against Sekztia Nes and Bnei Yehuda in between the defeats.

Out of their last 11 league matches though, Hapoel Haifa have managed to record just a total of 4 wins and this could be one of the keys to determining the outcome of this local clash on Tuesday night.

3 of Hapoel Haifa’s last 9 matches overall in the Israeli top flight has also seen the ‘visitors’ concede 3 goals or more, and as they’re up against a high-scoring Maccabi outfit here, this could be another long night for Hapoel.


Key-Facts – Maccabi Haifa vs Hapoel Haifa

  • Maccabi Haifa are currently enjoying a 10-match sequence without defeat
  • Hapoel Haifa have managed just 4 wins out of their last 11 matches
