Beitar Jerusalem will be looking for an improved result here after the 3-1 Ligat HaAl loss in their previous game against Hapoel Haifa.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Beitar Jerusalem have kept a clean sheet. In fact, The Menorah have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 9 goals on the way. That sort of trend might not be carried forward into this match, though.

- haven't beaten Bnei Sakhnin in their previous 4 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 4 league matches at home.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Hapoel Hadera in Ligat HaAl action, Bnei Sakhnin will be aiming to make amends here.
For 5 of the prior six games involving Bnei Sakhnin, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game within that spell is a meagre 1.33, with the average goals for Bnei Sakhnin being 0.83.
Their previous form shows that Bnei Sakhnin:
- haven't been beaten by Beitar Jerusalem when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 3 league matches.

Team News: Beitar Jerusalem
Beitar Jerusalem manager Ronny Levy will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash with a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Bnei Sakhnin
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there’s only the lone fitness worry for the Bnei Sakhnin gaffer Eldad Shavit to contend with. Sebastián Velásquez (Thigh muscle rupture) misses out for this game.
Beitar Jerusalem look set to get amongst the goals when they line up against Bnei Sakhnin, who may well find it hard to find the back of the net.
We can therefore see a decent 2-0 winning score for Beitar Jerusalem by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
