Hapoel Hadera will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-0 Ligat HaAl losing effort in their last game against Beitar Jerusalem.
Fred Friday (58') and Mayron George (66') scored for Beitar Jerusalem.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Hapoel Hadera have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Hapoel Hadera have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 14 goals in the process. We will find out if that trend will be continued on here.
Their previous form shows that Hapoel Hadera:
- have left without a victory over Hapoel Haifa when playing them at home in the previous 2 league matches.
- haven't beaten Hapoel Haifa in their last 4 league games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 12 league matches. Something needs to change.
Hapoel Haifa will come into the meeting following on from a 2-0 Ligat HaAl win with the downing of FC Ashdod in their previous match.
The only player to score from Hapoel Haifa was Guy Melamed (69').
Throughout their 6 previous matches, Ronny Levy's Hapoel Haifa have had reason to celebrate scoring 12 times thus giving them a goals scored per game average of 2.

Team News: Hapoel Hadera
The Hapoel Hadera boss Asaf Nimni will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match thanks to a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Hapoel Haifa
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there is only the one fitness problem for the Hapoel Haifa gaffer Ronny Levy to contend with. Liran Sardal (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
We’re of the opinion that Hapoel Hadera will have to play well to see themselves scoring against this Hapoel Haifa team who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’ve gone for a good battle with a 0-1 winning margin for Hapoel Haifa at full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
