Hapoel Petah Tikva
Hapoel Petah Tikva will be hoping to bounce back here after the 2-0 Ligat HaAl losing effort in their last game against FC Ashdod.
Mohammad Kna'an (39') and Ezekiel Henty (43') scored for FC Ashdod.
A common characteristic of more recent Hapoel Petah Tikva games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
From their prior sextet of clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on "Both Teams to Score" would have been a loser.
Hapoel Hadera will go into the encounter following a 1-0 Ligat HaAl win to defeat Hapoel Tel Aviv in their last outing.
The strike force from Hapoel Hadera have been starved of goals in their past six games, recording the poor return of only 3. In those fixtures, Hadera have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 9. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be continued on in this game.
Going into this encounter, Hapoel Hadera haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league matches.
Head to head

Team News: Hapoel Petah Tikva
Djimy Alexis (Knee surgery) and Yaar Zambrawski (Hamstring strain) won’t be playing for Hapoel Petah Tikva boss Itzik Shaki.
Team News: Hapoel Hadera
Due to a mostly healthy group, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Hapoel Hadera boss Asaf Nimni to contend with. Ilay Trost (Hamstring injury) won’t be playing here. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Toni Gomes and Souleymane Coulibaly.
Here is a game where Hapoel Hadera might well have a job on their hands to hit the back of the net against this Hapoel Petah Tikva lineup who we think will be able to grind out a win.
We’re going for a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Hapoel Petah Tikva at the end of the 90 minutes.
Should be an interesting one.
