The Ligat HaAl game at Doha Stadium on Saturday sees home team Bnei Sakhnin locking horns with Beitar Jerusalem.
Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Bnei Sakhnin v Beitar Jerusalem game (including the best match odds).
Bnei Sakhnin enter this game coming off the back of a 1-1 Ligat HaAl draw against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Yonas Malede (88') scored for Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Bnei Sakhnin have struggled with their forward play in recent times. Their goals record equals just 3 vs opposition teams over the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Bnei Sakhnin have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 7. That kind of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, though.
Their previous form shows that Bnei Sakhnin:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Beitar Jerusalem in their previous 3 matches.
- have not won at home in their last 8 league games. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Maccabi Haifa in Ligat HaAl action, Beitar Jerusalem will be aiming to make amends here.
Anan Khalaili (45') and Dean David (51') scored for Maccabi Haifa.
Yossi Abukasis's Beitar Jerusalem have had reason to celebrate scoring 8 times in the course of their most recent six matches. The overall goals that have been scored against them during that same period equals 8.
Coming into this fixture, Beitar Jerusalem have left without a victory over Bnei Sakhnin in away games against them for the last 6 league games. Not the best of away records.
Head to head
Checking on their prior head to head meetings going back to 30/11/2021 shows that Bnei Sakhnin have won 3 of them and Beitar Jerusalem 1, with the tally of drawn results standing at 2.
A total of 18 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 11 of them for Bnei Sakhnin and 7 belonging to The Menorah. That’s an average goals per game of 3.
The last league contest featuring the two was Ligat HaAl match day 9 on 16/12/2023 and the score finished Beitar Jerusalem 1-1 Bnei Sakhnin.

Maroun Gantus (Groin strain), Taleb Tawatha (Knee collateral ligament strain), Ilay Elmkies (Torn thigh muscle) and Beram Kayal (Tibia and fibula fracture) are unavailable for Bnei Sakhnin boss Klemi Saban Klemi Saban.
Team News: Beitar Jerusalem
Due to a completely healthy group ready to go, the Beitar Jerusalem manager Yossi Abukasis has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
Our feeling is that Beitar Jerusalem and Bnei Sakhnin are probably both going to find scoring goals difficult here.
A draw is a real possibility, as a clear-cut winner doesn’t appear to be obvious. We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought 0-0 scoreline at the end of the 90.
