Head to head

Team News: Beitar Jerusalem
The Beitar Jerusalem manager Yossi Abukasis will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game with a fully healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Maccabi Haifa
Maccabi Haifa boss Messay Dego has some current player fitness concerns. Mahmoud Jaber (Hamstring injury), Sun Menahem (concussion), Erik Shuranov (Cruciate ligament surgery), Dolev Haziza (Achilles tendon irritation) and Ilay Hajaj (Abdominal problems) can’t be considered.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Beitar Jerusalem are certainly able to breach the defence of this Maccabi Haifa outfit, but one goal possibly won’t be good enough.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 victory for Maccabi Haifa at full-time. Should be a good one.
