Team News: Hapoel Jerusalem
The Hapoel Jerusalem boss Ziv Arie will be thankful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: FC Ashdod
Due to a mostly available squad, there is just the one fitness problem for the FC Ashdod manager Ran Ben Shimon to contend with. Martin Ndzie (Meniscus injury) misses out for this game.
Here is a game where FC Ashdod will have to play well to break down this Hapoel Jerusalem side who we reckon will score & stay on top.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even contest with a 1-0 victory for Hapoel Jerusalem at the end of the 90 minutes.
There should be little in it.
