Beitar Jerusalem will be hosting visiting rivals Bnei Sakhnin at Teddy Stadium in this Ligat HaAl match on Thursday.
Our Beitar Jerusalem v Bnei Sakhnin predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Beitar Jerusalem enter this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Ligat HaAl stalemate versus Hapoel Be'er Sheva.
Beitar Jerusalem have struggled with their forward play of late. Their sum of goals stands at just 4 versus opponents over their previous 6 matches. In those games, The Menorah have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 6.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Beitar Jerusalem:
- are unbeaten in the league by Bnei Sakhnin in their last 5 games.
- haven't won against Bnei Sakhnin in their last 3 league matches.
After being beaten in their last game against Hapoel Haifa in Ligat HaAl competition, Bnei Sakhnin will be aiming to make amends here.
Fixtures featuring Bnei Sakhnin have turned out to be rather tedious affairs in recent times with a dearth of scoring becoming routine. During their past 6 games, the measly gross goal total of 5 has been recorded between both them and their opposition at an average goals per match of 0.83. Nevertheless, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend might be sustained in this upcoming game.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Bnei Sakhnin:
- are winless against Beitar Jerusalem when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- are without an away win for the past 5 matches in the league.

Team News: Beitar Jerusalem
Beitar Jerusalem manager Ronny Levy doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy squad to pick from. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Orel Dgani and Ofir Kriaf.
Team News: Bnei Sakhnin
Bnei Sakhnin manager Eldad Shavit has multiple availability issues to deal with. Sari Falah (Knee Surgery) and Sebastián Velásquez (Thigh muscle rupture) miss out here.
We feel that Bnei Sakhnin have it within them to score a goal against this Beitar Jerusalem side, but it might not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Beitar Jerusalem after the 90. Let’s see what eventuates.
