Team News: Bnei Sakhnin
Sebastián Velásquez (Thigh muscle rupture) and Sari Falah (Knee Surgery) will not be taking part for Bnei Sakhnin boss Eldad Shavit.
Team News: Hapoel Haifa
Hapoel Haifa boss Haim Silvas has some current player fitness concerns. Ness Zamir (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Ahmad Darawshe (Groin Injury), Michael Siroshten (Meniscal Injury) and Amit Suiri (Corona virus) miss out here. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Dor Malul and Alon Turgeman.
When taking all factors into account, Hapoel Haifa and Bnei Sakhnin could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the match.
