Team News: Hapoel Hadera
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Hapoel Hadera boss Ori Guttman to be concerned with due to a largely intact group of players. Wessam Rabah (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Bnei Sakhnin
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is only the one fitness issue for the Bnei Sakhnin gaffer Eldad Shavit to be concerned with. Sebastián Velásquez (Thigh muscle rupture) won’t be in action.
We feel that Bnei Sakhnin are certainly able to break down this Hapoel Hadera side, but it might not be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re expecting a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Hapoel Hadera when all is said and done. There looks to be little in this one.
