Team News: Maccabi Netanya
Ben Azubel (Ankle Injury), Ron Ashkenazi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Almog Cohen (Hamstring Injury) are unavailable for Netanya gaffer Slobodan Drapić.
Team News: Hapoel Tel Aviv
Hapoel TA boss Nisso Avitan has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Roei Zikri (Abdominal muscles injury) and Niv Sardal (Hamstring Injury) miss out here.
Our thinking is that Hapoel Tel Aviv will really need to work well to breach the defence of this Maccabi Netanya team who we think might well score one, at least.
We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought 1-0 winning margin for Maccabi Netanya at the end of the 90.
A close call.
