Hapoel Hadera are hoping to win again after their last result, a 0-2 Ligat HaAl triumph over Beitar Jerusalem. The only player to score from Hapoel Hadera was Samy Bourard (17′, 81′). It has been seldom in recent games where Hapoel Hadera have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Hapoel Hadera have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 14 goals in the process. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, of course.
In their last fixture, Maccabi Haifa drew 0-0 in the Ligat HaAl match with Maccabi Bnei Reineh. The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Maccabi Haifa has been noticeable in recent matches. Looking at their last 6 outings shows that this has occurred 5 times. In these clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 4 and Maccabi Haifa have scored 8.
In our opinion, Maccabi Haifa have it within them to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the other end, Hapoel Hadera won’t find it easy scoring goals but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be scoring here as well.
We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 1-3 win for Maccabi Haifa at the end of the match.
