Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Maccabi Tel Aviv v Hapoel Be'er Sheva match are shown here (plus the best game odds).
Maccabi Tel Aviv
Maccabi Tel Aviv will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 3-2 Ligat HaAl loss in their previous game against Maccabi Haifa.
Maccabi Tel Aviv haven’t had any problems with scoring, hitting the target in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve managed to rack up 11 during that time and have conceded a total of 7.
Leading up to this clash, Maccabi Tel Aviv:
- are winless against Hapoel Be'er Sheva in their last 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 4 home league matches.
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Hapoel Be'er Sheva head into the meeting following a 3-0 Ligat HaAl win over Bnei Sakhnin in their most recent fixture.
A run of resolute showings by the Hapoel Be'er Sheva defence has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 3 from their previous 6 outings combined. During the same period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 13. Having said that, it remains to be seen whether that trend might continue on in this next game.
Taking a look at their past results, Hapoel Be'er Sheva:
- have left without a victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv when having played them away from home in the previous 6 league matches. Not the best of away records.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 7 away league matches.
