Our football match prediction:
Hapoel Be’er Sheva did well to book their place in the Europa League knockout stages last season, but Turkish side Besiktas eventually proved to be a big catch for the Israeli outfit. However, Hapoel put icing on the cake on a very successful season with a win in the domestic championship and, no doubt, Bachar Barak’s men have big ambitions for the Champions League qualifiers. Hapoel Be’er Sheva take on Honved in the second qualifying round and they certainly want to get their job done in the tie against the Hungarian outfit in the first leg. The Israeli side are a real force to be reckoned with at home and that is the main reason why we predict the Camels will emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s football game. Honved did well to crush Szeged 2011 in their last warm-up game, but beating Hapoel on the road is easier said than done.
Highlighted Team (Hapoel Beer Sheva):
Hapoel Be’er Sheva are an Israeli football club based in Beersheba. The club was founded in 1949 and they play their home games at Turner Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 16 126 and it was opened in September, 2015. Hapoel wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil and they play in blue shirts and black shorts on the travels. The club played their first game against Mefalsim and they defeated their opponents 5-4. Back then no more than five teams competed in the Israeli league and it has to be noted that the likes of Hapoel Rishon LeZion, Hapoel Kfar Saba and Hapoel Ramat Gan were other teams that participated in the league. In 1975 Hapoel Be’er Sheva won their first Israeli Premier League trophy, with the team finishing the season three points clear of Maccabi Netanya. In the 2015/2016 season they won their third domestic trophy, leaving Maccabi Tel Aviv three points clear of them in the standings. Shalon Avitan is one of the most notable footballers who played for the club.
